Hi everyone ~~ I hope that the week is going

well for you. All OK here, but I am tired

tonight so will leave a short post. Just a

couple of short poems and a joke.

<><><><> IF ~ Author unknown . <><><>

If you want to be healed

Of your troubles and trials,

Do somethimg for others

And do it with smiles.


Toiling is not toiling

When the service that we give

Is to keep the living loving

And to help the loving live.


People, even more than things

have to be restored, renewed,

revived, reclaimed and redeemed,

Never throw out anybody.


Remember, if you ever need a helping hand;

You’ll find one at the end of your arm.

As you grow older, you will discover that

you have two hands. Anon.


A woman was looking in the mirror and said

to her husband: “Gee, I’m fat and ugly. Tell

me something positive.”


The husband replies: “Your eyesight is perfect.”

<><><><><><><> Bye ~ <><><><><>
