Hi all~~ I have another little story from Shepparton. You, know how we have Pink Ribbon Day for breast cancer, and Rednose Day for Sids etc etc.
There was a little girl Called Zaidee who lived here, but she died last year. She had discussed Organ Donation with her family (at the age of 7) and wanted to donate her organs and tissue. Her parents honored her wishes and consented to this.
Now in memory of Zaidee, they have created a symbol of Rainbow colored Shoe laces. Apparently this little girl loved colored shoe- laces, so that’s where they got the idea. Zaidee was the only child donor in Victoria ever to do that.
On a different note ~~ My lovely grand-daughter gave me a delightful white soft teddy- bear when a dear friend died.
Well he spends his time sitting on my bed, but today I put him in the washing machine to brighten him up a bit. This was traumatic for me and I guess for him. He looks nice again and no real harm came to either of us. Now a joke…. or another one..
Gotta Love Drunk People.
A man, and his wife are awakened at 3 o'clock in the
morning by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to
the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring
rain, is asking for a push.
"Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3 o'clock in
the morning!" He slams the door and returns to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife.
"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.
"Did you help him?" she asks.
"No, I did not! It's 3 o'clock in the morning and it
is pouring out there!"
"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't
you remember about three months ago when we broke down and
those two guys helped us?
I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed
The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out
into the pounding rain.
He calls out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there?"
"Yes" comes back the answer.
"Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.
"Yes, Please!" comes the reply from the dark.
"Where are you?" asks the husband.
"Over here on the swing!" replies the drunk.
Serenity Prayer. ___ Reinhold Neibuh
God, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The Couage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.
Living ONE DAY AT A TIME; enjoying one moment at a time. Accepting hardship as the pathway to Peace.
Taking as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it.
Trusting that He will make things right, if I surrender to
That I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely
happy with Him forever in the next. Amen.
