Baby boomers -- life's a b___ and then you die!  Boomer humor!

 I'm Thankful For
The partner who hogs the covers every night, because he is not out with someone else.
The child who is not cleaning his room,  because that means he is at home and
not in the streets.
For the taxes that I pay, because it means that I am employed.
For the mess to clean after a party, because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.
For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.
For my shadow, that watches me work, because it means I am in the sunshine.
For a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing, because it means I have a home.
For all the complaints I hear about the government, because it means that we have freedom of speech.
For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means I am capable of walking and that I have been blessed with transportation.
For my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm.
For the lady behind me in church that sings off key, because it means that I can hear.
For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.
For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, because it means I have been capable of working hard.
For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means that I'm alive.
And finally, for too much email because it means I have friends who're thinking of me.

 Nail in The Fence ~
There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He
discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there."

A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open their hearts to us.

Please forgive me if I have ever left a hole in your fence.

 On a positive note ~

I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled and knotted necklaces.

I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.

I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life".

I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands.  You need to be able to throw something back.

I've learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you.  But if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, you work and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.

I've leaned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I've leaned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

I've leaned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.  People love that human touch ~ holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I've leaned that you should pass this on to someone you care about.  I just did.  Sometimes they just need a little something to make them smile.

I've leaned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

I've learned that:
The best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.
When you're in love, it shows.
Just one person saying to me, "You've made my day!" makes my day.
Having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
Being kind is more important than being right.
You should never say no to a gift from a child.
I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some way.
No matter how serious your life requires you to be,everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.
Sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.
Simple walks with my father around the block on summer nights as a child did wonders for me as an adult.
Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
We should be glad God doesn't give us everything we ask for.
Money doesn't buy class.
It's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.
Under everyone's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.
The Lord didn't do it all in one day. What makes me think I can?
To ignore the facts does not change the facts.
When you plan to get even with someone, you're only letting that person continue to hurt you.
Love, not time, heals all wounds.Best way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than me.
Everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.
There's nothing sweeter than sleeping with your babies and feeling their breath on your cheek.
No one is perfect until you fall in love with them.
Life is tough, but I'm tougher.
Opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.
When you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.
I wish I could have told my Mom that I love her one more time before she passed away.
One should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them.
A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
I can't choose how I feel, but I can choose what I do about it.
When your newly born grandchild holds your little finger in his little fist, you're hooked for life.
Everyone wants to live on top of the hill, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.
It is best to give advice in only two circumstances; when it is requested and in a life-threatening situation.
The less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.

Money can buy a house but not a home
Money can buy a bed but not sleep
Money can buy a clock but not time
Money can buy a book but not knowledge
Money can buy food but not an appetite
Money can buy position but not respect
Money can buy blood but not life
Money can buy medicine but not health
Money can buy insurance but not safety

You see, money is not everything ~ therefore, if you have too much, please send it to me, immediately!                                                                           

   If you know to whom any of these should be attributed, please let us know!  Have some?  Pass them along!
