Something to Think About

25.jpg

These 12 short stories are all very good lessons, and really
made us think twice about the daily happenings in our lives as we deal with
others!!
1.
Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working
on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own
words, she said, “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile.”
——————————-
2.
Today, I asked my mentor – a very successful business man in his
70s- what his top 3 tips are for success. He smiled and said, “Read
something no one else is reading, think something no one else
is thinking, and do something no one else is doing.”
——————————————————-
3.
Today, after my 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn’trecognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sinceresmile and said , “On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center.”
——————————————————-
4.
Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.
——————————————————-
5.
Today at 7AM, I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the
money, so I went into work. At 3PM I got laid off. On my drive home I got
a flat tire. When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too.
A man in a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted, and
then he offered me a job. I start tomorrow.
——————————————————-
6.
Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood
around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent
words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have
gotten together like this more often.”
——————————————————-
7.
Today, I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a
small hospital bed. About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the
first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.
——————————————————-
8.
Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me
to start recycling. I chuckled and asked, “Why?”
She replied, “So you can help me save the planet.”
I chuckled again and asked, “And why do you want to save the
planet?” Because that’s where I keep all my stuff,” she said.
——————————————————-
9.
Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old breast cancer patient
laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, I suddenly
realized that I need to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating
it again.
——————————————————-
10.
Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on
crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for
me.
He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he
was leaving he said, “I hope you feel better soon.”
——————————————————-
11.
Today, I was feeling down because the results of a biopsy
came back malignant. When I got home, I opened an e-mail that said,
“Thinking of you today. If you need me, I’m a phone call away.”
It was from a high school friend I hadn’t seen in 10 years.
——————————————————–
12.
Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from
Zimbabwe.
He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days and looked
extremely skinny and unhealthy.
Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was
eating. The first thing the man said was, “We can share it.
——————————————————–
The best sermons are lived, not preached.
——————————————————–
I am glad I have you to send these to.
====================================================
These are worth passing on..hope you enjoy them as much as I
did !
God Bless AMERICA.
Land of the FREE because of the BRAVE . . .
Every Morning you wake up with 2 choices
1. You can continue to sleep with your Dreams.
2. You can wake up and CHASE your Dreams….

REMEMBER,
Money can’t buy happiness but poverty can’t buy anything !
