Aww Pictures / A Tattle-Tale / OOps / Feel Good Story...

A definite 10 out of 10 in the Awww factor ......


Hi Folks,


Pictures with the Awww factor ......

Could you imagine coming home from work to find this tiny creature napping on your couch with your dog? Guess who came home for dinner? It followed this beagle home, right through the doggy door. This happened in Maryland recently. The owner came home to find the Bambi like visitor had made himself right at home. This hit the 6 o'clock news big time. Isn't this adorable?

More 'Charm' of the young ......

My younger son 'D' (Louis's Dad) was one of these children who 'told all' that went on in our house when he was small and true to the law of 'Karma' Louis is 'exactly' the same and 'D' now knows how I felt - when 'he' told 'all and sundry' what was happening at our house and 'who said what' during his childhood ...... secrets were an unknown quantity when he was wee and so now 'D' has to watch what he says and instead of just opening his mouth and being open 'he' now finds that he has to first think before he speaks - Isn't it funny how when you become a parent your 'spelling' improves out of all recognition as anything that Louis might repeat is spelt to Debz...

OOps moment ......

One of these occasions when a parent could have stuffed something into her daughter's mouth to keep her quiet ....

A college professor was doing a study testing the senses of first year schoolchildren, using a bowl of Fruit Loops, the cereal with the hole in it. He gave all the children the same kind of loop, one at a time, and asked them to identify them by colour and flavour. The children began to say:
'Red.............cherry,' 'Yellow.........lemon,' 'Green............lime,' 'Orange .........orange.'
Finally the professor gave them all 'honey' loops. After eating them for a few moments none of the children could identify the taste.

'Well,' he said 'I'll give you all a clue. It's what your mother may sometimes call your father.'
One little girl looked up in disgust and horror, spat hers out and yelled: 'Oh NOOOO ! They're ass-holes !'

I'm ending this post with a 'feel good story' from 'Inspirational Stories' and hope you like it - It did look kind of familiar, so I checked it out and I had added part of it to the post on the 9th April ... but it's a lovely one so it's worthy of the full story on this outing ... Enjoy ! By the way, I post these because I like them, they are not meant in any way like lectures or preaching or aught - they just appeal to me - erm..... I have told you before that I'm 'still' menopausal and that I'm a wee bit doo-lally - haven't I ??

The Pencil Maker ......

The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box. "There are 5 things you need to know," he told the pencil, "Before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be."

"One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone's hand."

"Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you'll need it to become a better pencil."

"Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make."

"Four: The most important part of you will always be what's inside."

"And Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write." The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

Now replacing the place of the pencil with you. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be.

One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in God's hand. And allow other human beings to access you for the many gifts you possess.

Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems in life, but you'll need it to become a stronger person.

Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.

Four: The most important part of you will always be what's on the inside.

And Five: On every surface you walk through, you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation, you must continue.
I love this parable as it encourages folk to know that they are special and that they can fulfill the purpose for which they were born. Life is hard sometimes and can make us feel discouraged and that we cannot make a change.
