Today, I am washing all that bad stuff from the last few days right outta my hair! I mean it! It has been said, (probably by more than one person) we can choose to be happy or we can choose to be unhappy.
So, in light of that, today we are only entertaining positive, funny, feel good type fragments! *You can thank me later.*
Keep it to yourself!
Five year old grandson was coughing his head off. Fourteen year old uncle decides to give grandson a short lesson in manners. He tells #5 he needs to cover his mouth when he coughs, so he doesn’t spread germs.
“What’s a germ?”
“It is like little bugs too small to see. When you don't cover your mouth, they go everywhere.”
“But if I do cover my mouth it will just make ‘em go back in me.”
How can you argue with that kind of logic?
This week's sweetest story!
BLAINE, Minn. - Betsy Sathers wears the glow of a new mother as she perches on the couch in her family room, smiling and chatting with visitors while still managing to keep an eye on the 2-year-old twins burbling and cavorting at her feet.
Sathers — whose husband was killed when a Minneapolis freeway bridge collapsed into the Mississippi River in 2007 — is realizing her dreams of being a mother with the adoption of Ross and Alyse from Haiti.
The twins, brought to Sathers' home just days after the earthquake in Haiti, suck from baby bottles and drag toys across the floor. On the wall hangs a framed wedding day photo of Sathers and her late husband, Scott.

Story # 2.
On the one hand, he was shot in the head. On the other, the bullet bounced off him.
In one of those rare battlefield miracles, an insurgent sniper hit Lance Cpl. Koenig dead on in the front of his helmet, and he walked away from it with a smile on his face.
"I don't think I could be any luckier than this," Lance Cpl. Koenig said two hours after the shooting.
Lance Cpl. Koenig's brush with death came during a day of intense fighting for the Marines of Company B, 1st Battalion, 6th Regiment.
(I am not sure I would call this “luck.” I liked miracle better. Whatever, I am thankful this young man was protected from a very tragic death. ~ Cheryl)
More on Lance Cpl. Koenig.
This picture belongs to a friend of mine. I love it. I think it is an amazing camera shot. But, when I look at it, I can hear Judy Garland singing, “Somewhere, over the rainbow~”
