well this put a smile on my face...

As great as the Grand Isle vacation was,
as wonderful as the company was,
it is good to be home as in any family/friend gathering
there is always some drama...
Today, I open an email from my dear friend Stacy 
who was one of our Island visitors
and this is awaiting me.
It began with a story about a glass of water
and how if you hold if for a few minutes or a few hours,
there is no problem with the 20 oz. glass of water.
But hold it for a whole day, a few days
and an ambulance may be needed.
Lay down, lay down, lay down your burdens with me.
Yep, that is one of those old church songs I love.
If you carrying some one else's burdens lay them
down at the foot of God and let them go...
here are a few instances that will help. 
1* Accept the fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue!
2* Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
3* Drive carefully . . . It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.
4* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
5* If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
6* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.
7* Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
8* Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
9* You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
10* A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
11* Have an awesome day, and know that someone has thought about you today.
It was me, your friend!
*Help save the earth . . . It's the only planet with chocolate !!!
Thanks my dear Stacy, not only for the email that was so needed 
today but for the friendship that you and I started many moons ago
and the promise we made to each other to work on 
making it stronger.
I love you big, big!
