The Stranger – Another New E-Mail via Mom – Ponder This One For A Moment!

This should give you cause for serious thought.
The Stranger
A  few years after I was born, my Dad met a  stranger who was new to our small town.  From the  beginning, Dad was fascinated with this  enchanting newcomer and soon invited him to live  with our family.  The stranger was quickly  accepted and was around from then on. As  I grew up, I never questioned his place in my  family. In my young mind, he had a special  niche.  
My parents were complementary  instructors: Mom taught me good from evil, and  Dad taught me to obey. But the stranger… he  was our storyteller. He would keep us spellbound  for hours on end with adventures, mysteries and  comedies. 
If  I wanted to know anything about politics,  history or science, he always knew the answers  about the past, understood the present and even  seemed able to predict the future!  He took  my family to the first major league ball  game.  He made me laugh, and he made me  cry. The stranger never stopped talking, but Dad  didn’t seem to mind. Sometimes, Mom  would get up quietly while the rest of us were  shushing each other to listen to what he had to  say, and she would go to the kitchen for peace  and quiet. 
 (I  wonder now if she ever prayed for the stranger  to leave.) Dad ruled our household with  certain moral convictions, but the stranger  never felt obligated to honor them.   Profanity, for example, was not allowed in our  home – not from us, our friends or any  visitors.  After our long time visitor stayed longer he became more daring however,  and even got away with four-letter words that burned my ears and made my dad squirm and my mother  blush.  My Dad didn’t permit the liberal  use of alcohol but the stranger encouraged us to  try it on a regular basis.  
He made  cigarettes look cool, cigars manly, and pipes  distinguished. He talked freely (much too  freely!) about sex.  His comments were  sometimes blatant, sometimes suggestive, and  generally embarrassing.. 

I now know that  my early concepts about relationships were  influenced strongly by the stranger. Time after  time, he opposed the values of my parents, yet  he was seldom rebuked… And NEVER asked to  leave. 

More than fifty years have passed  since the stranger moved in with our family. He  has blended right in and is not nearly as fascinating as he was at first. Still, if you  could walk into my parents’ den today, you would  still find him sitting over in his corner,  waiting for someone to listen to him talk and watch him draw his pictures.  

His  name?….
We  just call him ‘TV.’ 
Note:  This should be required reading for every household!)  
He  has a wife now….we call her  ‘Computer.’  
Their  first child is “Cell Phone”. 
Second  child “I Pod  “   

Sunset at The North Pole – Newest E-mail From Mom – Awesome Picture!!!

Sunset at the North Pole
This is one of the rarest pictures that you will ever see in your life
when the moon was closest to the earth. The date the picture
was taken was Thursday, 13th May 2011 . 
   This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point last week.

a scene you will probably never get to see in person, so take a moment and
enjoy God at work at the North Pole.
And, you also see the sun below the moon, an amazing photo and not one easily
duplicated. You may want to pass it on to others so they can enjoy it.

The Chinese have a saying that goes something like this:
‘When someone shares with you something of value,
you have an obligation to share it with others!’
I just did ….your turn.

She was like this…
Together, we were like this…

Something From My Daughter – Too True!

Maya Angelou  at her best.  Enjoy!

Read to the end, you will laugh just picturing it happening. 
I love the thoughts she lives by!!! 
I didn’t break the elastic…


In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.

And, there on television, she said it was ‘exciting..’ 

Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day…..like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first.

The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!

Maya Angelou said this:
‘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 Christmas tree lights.’

‘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 some things back…’

‘I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.’

‘I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.’

‘I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back…’

‘I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn…’

‘I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’

Good words to live by.  Too true!  I loved this Shawna, thanks you made me smile 🙂  I love you too xoxo

To Be Six Again – Hilarious E-mail From My Brother

To Be 6 Again!
A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his  wife, who was looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off he asked what she’d like to have for her birthday.
‘I’d like to be six again’ she said still looking in the mirror.


On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Lucky Charms, and then took her to Six Flags theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming
Roller Coaster, everything there was.

Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a McDonald’s where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake.

Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite
  candy, M&M’s. What a fabulous adventure! 

Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted. 

He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, ‘Well Dear, what was it like being six again?’

Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed.

‘I meant my dress size, you idiot!!!!’

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong.
