A woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirrorand noticed she had only three hairs on her head. Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today?"So she did and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. "H-M-M," she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today?" So she did and she had a grand day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. "Well," she said, "today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail."So she did and she had a fun, fun day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head. "YEA!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!"
What an attitude!!!!
Wish I were like that all the time.....

A good story...

One day a man saw a old lady, strandedon the side of the road, but even inthe dim light of day, he could see sheneeded help. So he pulled up in frontof her Mercedes and got out. HisPontiac was still sputtering when heapproached her.Even with the smile on his face, shewas worried. No one had stopped tohelp for the last hour or so. Was hegoing to hurt her? He didn't looksafe; he looked poor and hungry.He could see that she was frightened,standing out there in the cold. Heknew how she felt. It was that chillwhich only fear can put in you.He said, "I'm here to help you, ma'am.Why don't you wait in the car whereit's warm? By the way, my name isBryan Anderson."Well, all she had was a flat tire, butfor an old lady, that was bad enough.Bryan crawled under the car lookingfor a place to put the jack, skinninghis knuckles a time or two. Soon hewas able to change the tire. But hehad to get dirty and his hands hurt.As he was tightening up the lug nuts,she rolled down the window and beganto talk to him. She told him that shewas from St. Louis and was only justpassing through. She couldn't thankhim enough for coming to her aid.Bryan just smiled as he closed hertrunk. The lady asked how much sheowed him. Any amount would have beenall right with her. She alreadyimagined all the awful things thatcould have happened had he notstopped. Bryan never thought twiceabout being paid. This was not a jobto him. This was helping someone inneed, and God knows there were plenty,who had given him a hand in the past.He had lived his whole life that way,and it never occurred to him to actany other way.He told her that if she really wantedto pay him back, the next time she sawsomeone who needed help, she couldgive that person the assistance theyneeded, and Bryan added, "And think ofme."He waited until she started her carand drove off. It had been a cold anddepressing day, but he felt good as heheaded for home, disappearing into thetwilight.A few miles down the road the lady sawa small cafe. She went in to grab abite to eat, and take the chill offbefore she made the last leg of hertrip home. It was a dingy lookingrestaurant. Outside were two old gaspumps. The whole scene was unfamiliarto her. The waitress came over andbrought a clean towel to wipe her wethair. She had a sweet smile, one thateven being on her feet for the wholeday couldn't erase. The lady noticedthe waitress was nearly eight monthspregnant, but she never let the strainand aches change her attitude. The oldlady wondered how someone who had solittle could be so giving to astranger. Then she remembered Bryan .After the lady finished her meal, shepaid with a hundred dollar bill. Thewaitress quickly went to get changefor her hundred dollar bill, but theold lady had slipped right out thedoor. She was gone by the time thewaitress came back. The waitresswondered where the lady could be. Thenshe noticed something written on thenapkin.There were tears in her eyes when sheread what the lady wrote: "You don'towe me anything. I havebeen there too. Somebody once helpedme out, the way I'm helping you. Ifyou really want to pay me back, hereis what you do: Do not let this chainof love end with you."Under the napkin were four more $100bills.Well, there were tables to clear,sugar bowls to fill, and people toserve, but the waitress made itthrough another day. That night whenshe got home from work and climbedinto bed, she was thinking about themoney and what the lady had written.How could the lady have known how muchshe and her husband needed it? Withthe baby due next month, it was goingto be hard....She knew how worried her husband was,and as he lay sleeping next to her,she gave him a soft kiss and whisperedsoft and low, "Everything's going tobe all right. I love you, BryanAnderson."There is an old saying "What goesaround comes around." Good friends are like stars....Youdon't always see them, but you knowthey are always there.~GOD BLESS!~

A true story from somebody....here it goes...

My wife called, 'How long will you be poring over that newspaper?Will you come here and make your darling daughter eat her food?' I tossed the paper away and rushed to the scene.My only daughter Sindu looked frightened.Tears were welling up in her eyes. In front of her was a bowl filled to its brim with Curd Rice.Sindu is a nice child, quite intelligent for her age. She has just turned eight.She particularly detested Curd Rice. My mother and my wife are orthodox, and believe firmly in the 'coolingeffects' of Curd Rice! I cleared my throat, and picked up the bowl. 'Sindu, darling, why don't you take a few mouthful of this Curd Rice?Just for Dad's sake, dear. And, if you don't, your Mom will shout at me'I could sense my wife's scowl behind my back.Sindu softened a bit, and wiped her tears with the back of her hands.'OK, Dad. I will eat - not just a few mouthfuls, but the whole lot of this.But, you should...' Sindu hesitated.'Dad, if I eat this entire curd Rice, will you give me whatever I ask for?'Oh sure, darling'.

'Promise?''Promise'.I covered the pink soft hand extended by my daughter with mine, and clinched the deal. 'Ask Mom also to give a similar promise', my daughter insisted. My wife slapped her hand on Sindu's, muttering 'Promise', without any emotion.Now I became a bit anxious. 'Sindu dear, you shouldn't insist on getting a computer or any such expensive items.Dad does not have that kind of money right now. OK?''No, Dad. I do not want anything expensiveĆ¢€™.Slowly and painfully, she finished eating the whole quantity. I was silently angry with my wife and my mother for forcing my child eat something that she detested.After the ordeal was through, Sindu came to me with her eyes wide with expectation.All our attention was on her.'Dad, I want to have my head shaved off, this Sunday!' was her demand.'Atrocious!' shouted my wife, 'A girl child having her head shaved off?Impossible!''Never in our family!' my mother rasped. 'She has been watching too much of television.Our culture is getting totally spoiled with these TV programs!'Sindu darling, why don't you ask for something else?We will be sad seeing you with a clean-shaven head.' 'No, Dad. I do not want anything else', Sindu said with finality.'Please, Sindu, why don't you try to understand our feelings?' I tried to plead with her.'Dad, you saw how difficult it was for me to eat that Curd Rice'. Sindu was in tears.'And you promised to grant me whatever I ask for. Now, you are going back on your words.Was it not you who told me the story of King Harishchandra, and its moral that we should honor our promises no matter what?' It was time for me to call the shots. 'Our promise must be kept.''Are you out your mind?' chorused my mother and wife.'No. If we go back on our promises, she will never learn to honor her own.

Sindu, your wish will be fulfilled.'With her head clean-shaven, Sindu had a round-face, and her eyes looked big and beautiful.On Monday morning, I dropped her at her school. It was a sight to watch my hairless Sindu walking towards her classroom.She turned around and waved.I waved back with a smile.Just then, a boy alighted from a car, and shouted, 'Sinduja, please wait for me!'What struck me was the hairless head of that boy.'May be, that is the in-stuff', I thought. 'Sir, your daughter Sinduja is great indeed!'Without introducing herself, a lady got out of the car, and continued, That boy who is walking along with your daughter is my son Harish.He is suffering from... ... leukemia.' She paused to muffle her sobs.'Harish could not attend the school for the whole of the last month.He lost all his hair due to the side effects of the chemotherapy. He refused to come back to school fearing the unintentional but cruel teasing of the schoolmates.'Sinduja visited him last week, and promised him that she will take care of the teasing issue.But, I never imagined she would sacrifice her lovely hair for the sake of my son!

Sir, you and your wife are blessed to have such a noble soul as your daughter.'I stood transfixed. And then, I wept.'My little Angel, you are teaching me how self-less real love is!' *The happiest people on this planet are not those who live on their own terms but are those who change their terms for the ones whom they love..* Life ends when U stop dreaming....Hope ends when U stop believing....Love ends when U stop caring....Friendship ends when U stop sharing.....

11 lessons in life

*It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return,But what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

*A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you,only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and u you just have to let go.

*The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with,never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

*It is true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

*It takes only a minuteto get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone- but it takes lifetime to forget someone.

*Don't go for looks; they can deceive. Don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a day seem bright.

* Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all things you want to do.

*Always put yourself in other's shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.

*A careless word may kindle strife; a cruel word may wreck a life; a timely word may level stress; a loving word may heal and bless.

* The happiest of peopledon't necessarily have the best of everything they just make the most of everything that comes along the way.

*Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you are the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.
