Never lose your value


A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a$20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”
Hands started going up.
He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first,let me do this.” He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up.
He then asked, “Who still wants it?”
Still the hands were up in the air.
“Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it onthe ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty. “Now who stillwants it?” Still the hands went into the air.
“My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it didnot decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.

We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special - Don’t ever forget it!

Vitamin F


Vitamin F " 
I loved this and wanted to share it with you...         

Why do I have a variety of friends who are all so different in character? How can I get along with them all? I think that each one helps to bring out a "different" part of me. With one of them I am polite. With another I joke. I sit down and talk about serious matters with one. With another I laugh a lot. I listen to one friend's problems. Then I listen to another one's advice for me. My friends are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. When completed, they form a treasure box. A treasure of friends! They are my friends who understand me better than I understand myself. They're friends who support me through good days and bad. Real Age doctors tell us that friends are good for our health. 
Dr. Oz calls them Vitamin F (for Friends) and counts the benefits of friends as essential to our well being. Research shows that people in strong social circles have less risk of depression and terminal strokes.

If you enjoy Vitamin F constantly you can be up to 30 years younger than your real age. The warmth of friendship stops stress and even in your most intense moments, it decreases the chance of a cardiac arrest or stroke by 50%.
I'm so happy that I have a stock of Vitamin F!

In summary, we should value our friends and keep in touch with them. We should try to see the funny side of things and laugh together and pray for each other in the tough moments.

Some of my friends are friends on line. I know I am part of theirs because their names appear on my computer screen every day and I feel blessed that they care as much for me as I care for them. If ever you don't see my name on your screen please remember that it is not because I have forgotten you but because something has happened to me. I know as we age we cannot be on line forever but we are making the best of it while we still can. While there is breath in me I will always keep in touch, as often as I can, and will not forsake you Ever.

Thank you for being one of my Vitamins!

2 TOUGH QUESTIONS


Question 1:

If you knew a woman who was pregnant,
Who had 8 kids already,
Three who were deaf,
Two who were blind,
One mentally retarded,
And she had syphilis,

Would you recommend that she undergoes an abortion?


Read the next question before looking at the response for this one.

Question 2:

It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts..
Here are the facts about the three candidates.

Candidate A:
Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists.
He's had two mistresses.
He also chain smokes
And drinks 8 to 10 Martinis a day.

Candidate B:
He was kicked out of office twice,
Sleeps until noon,
Used opium in college
And drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C:
He is a decorated war hero,
He's a vegetarian,
Doesn't smoke,
Drinks an occasional beer
And never committed adultery.


Which of these candidates would be your choice?

Decide first ... No peeking, and then scroll down for the response.

 


  

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt. 
Candidate B is Winston Churchill. 
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler. 

And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:

If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven. 


Pretty interesting isn't it?
Makes a person think before judging someone.
MAKES A PERSON “THINK” BEFORE JUDGING SOMEONE!!!!

Remember:

Amateurs ... Built the ark.
Professionals ... Built the Titanic
