Here's a great thought of inspiration. And yes, we do need more like these people in the world.

One night, at 11:30 PM, an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rain storm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. A young white man stopped to help her - generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960s. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxi cab. She seemed to be in a big hurry! She wrote down his address, thanked him and drove away.
Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A special note was attached. It read: "Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes but my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband's bedside just before he passed away. God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others."

Kinda long and originally meant to be a "send out to thers when you get this," but it's worth the read and I'm sending it to all...

A little girl went 
to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from its hiding place in the closet. 


She poured the change out on the floor and counted it carefully. Three 
times, even The total had to be exactly perfect. No chance here for mistakes.


Carefully placing the coins back in the jar and twisting on the cap, she 
slipped out the back door and made her way 6 blocks to Rexall's Drug Store with 
the big red Indian Chief sign above the door. 

She waited patiently for 
the pharmacist to give her some attention, but he was too busy at this moment. 
Tess twisted her feet to make a scuffing noise. Nothing. She cleared her throat 
with the most disgusting sound she could muster. No good Finally she took a 
quarter from her jar and banged it on the glass counter. That did it! 




'And what do you want?' the pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone of 
voice. I'm talking to my brother from Chicago whom I haven't seen in ages,' he 
said without waiting for a reply to his question. 

'Well, I want to talk 
to you about my brother,' Tess answered back in the same annoyed tone. 'He's 
really, really sick...and I want to buy a miracle.' 

'I beg your pardon?' 
said the pharmacist. 

'His name is Andrew and he has something bad 
growing inside his head and my Daddy says only a miracle can save him now So how 
much does a miracle cost?' 

'We don't sell miracles here, little girl... 
I'm sorry but I can't help you,' the pharmacist said, softening a little. 




'Listen, I have the money to pay for it. If it isn't enough, I will get 
the rest. Just tell me ho w much it costs.' 

The pharmacist's brother was 
a well dressed man He stooped down and asked the little girl, 'What kind of a 
miracle does your brother need?' 

' I don't know,' Tess replied with her 
eyes welling up. I just know he's really sick and Mommy says he needs an 
operation. But my Daddy can't pay for it, so I want to use my money.' 


'How much do you have?' asked the man from Chicago 

'One dollar 
and eleven cents,' Tess answered barely audibly. 

'And it's all the money 
I have, but I can get some more if I need to.' 
'Well, what a 
coincidence,' smiled the man. 'A dollar and eleven cents---the exact price of a 
miracle for little brothers. ' 

He took her money in one hand and with 
the other hand he grasped her mitten and said 'Take me to where you live. I want 
to see your brother and meet your parents. Let's see if I have the miracle you 
need.' 



That well dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon, 
specializing in neuro-surgery. The operation was completed free of charge and it 
wasn't long until Andrew was home again and doing well. 

Mom and Dad were 
happily talking about the chain of events that had led them to this place. 


'That surgery,' her Mom whispered. 'was a real miracle. I wonder how 
much it would have cost?' 

Tess smiled. She knew exactly how much a 
miracle cost..one dollar and eleven cents....plus the faith of a little child. 




In our lives, we never know how many miracles we will need. 

A 
miracle is not the suspension of natural law, but the operation of a higher law... 
I know you'll keep the ball moving! 

Here it goes. Throw it back to 
someone who means something to you!

A ball is a circle, no beginning, no 
end. It keeps us together like our Circle of Friends. But the treasure inside 
for you to see is the treasure of friendship you've granted to me. 

Today 
I pass the friendship ball to you. 

Pass it on to someone who is a friend 
to you, including back to me! :-))

PostSubject: Re: Quotes For Living   Thu Feb 25, 2010 10:30 am

Not a quote, but inspirational nonetheless.



Who's your daddy?



A seminary professor was vacationing with his wife in Gatlinburg , TN.

One morning, they were eating breakfast at a little restaurant, hoping

to enjoy a quiet, family meal. While they were waiting for their food,

they noticed a distinguished looking, white-haired man moving from table

to table, visiting with the guests. The professor leaned over and

whispered to his wife, 'I hope he doesn't come over here.' But sure

enough, the man did come over to their table.



'Where are you folks from?' he asked in a friendly voice.

' Oklahoma ,' they answered.

'Great to have you here in Tennessee ,' the stranger said. 'What do you

do for a living?'

'I teach at a seminary,' he replied.



'Oh, so you teach preachers how to preach, do you? Well, I've got a

really great story for you.' And with that, the gentleman pulled up a

chair and sat down at the table with the couple.



The professor groaned and thought to himself, 'Great .. Just what I need

..another preacher story!'



The man started, 'See that mountain over there? (pointing out the

restaurant window). Not far from the base of that mountain, there was a

boy born to an unwed mother. He had a hard time growing up, because

every place he went, he was always asked the same question, 'Hey boy,

Who's your daddy?' Whether he was at school, in the grocery store or

drug store, people would ask the same question, 'Who's your daddy?'



He would hide at recess and lunchtime from other students. He would

avoid going into stores because that question hurt him so bad. 'When he

was about 12 years old, a new preacher came to his church. He would

always go in late and slip out early to avoid hearing the question,

'Who's your daddy?'

But one day, the new preacher said the benediction so fast that he got

caught and had to walk out with the crowd.



Just about the time he got to the back door, the new preacher, not

knowing anything about him, put his hand on his shoulder and asked him,

'Son, who's your daddy?'



The whole church got deathly quiet. He could feel every eye in the

church looking at him Now everyone would finally know the answer to the

question, 'Who's your daddy?'



'This new preacher, though, sensed the situation around him and using

discernment that only the Holy Spirit could give, said the following to

that scared little boy.. 'Wait a minute! I know who you are! I see the

family resemblance now, You are a child of God.'



With that he patted the boy on his shoulder and said, 'Boy, you've got

a great inheritance. Go and claim it.'



'With that, the boy smiled for the first time in a long time and walked

out the door a changed person. He was never the same again. Whenever

anybody asked him, 'Who's your Daddy?' he'd just tell them , 'I'm a

Child of God.''



The distinguished gentleman got up from the table and said, 'Isn't that

a great story?'

The professor responded that it really was a great story!



As the man turned to leave, he said, 'You know, if that new preacher

hadn't told me that I was one of God's children, I probably never would

have amounted to anything!' And he walked away.



The seminary professor and his wife were stunned. He called the waitress

over & asked her, 'Do you know who that man was -- the one who just left

that was sitting at our table?'



The waitress grinned and said, 'Of course. Everybody here knows him.

That's Ben Hooper. He's governor of Tennessee !'

I agree with that quote. We should be able to look back at all of our good work and actually be able to see something other than a blurr.

Originally written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland,Ohio

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It
is the most-requested column I've ever written." My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:


1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and
parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey
is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God
never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up
to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for
an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't
save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ''In five years, will
this matter?".

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or
didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd
grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
