Worth Noting

During the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the Surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the U.S. Produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns, and 2,500,000 military trucks.

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

It’s worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn’t build a functioning web site.

The Rain – A good one

The Rain

It was a busy
morning, about 8:30, when an elderly

gentleman in his 80’s arrived to have
stitches removed from his thumb.

He said he was in a hurry as he had an
appointment at 9:00 am.

I took his vital
signs and had him take a seat,

knowing it would be over an hour

before someone
would to able to see him.

I saw him looking at his watch and

decided, since I
was not busy with another patient,

I would evaluate his wound.

On exam, it was
well healed, so I talked to one of the

doctors, got the needed supplies to
remove his sutures and redress his wound.

While taking care of
his wound, I asked him if he

had another doctor’s appointment

this morning, as
he was in such a hurry.

The gentleman told me no, that he

needed to go to
the nursing home to eat breakfast

with his wife. I inquired as to her
health.

He told me thatshe had been there
for a while and that she

was a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease.

As we
talked, I asked if she would be

upset if he was a bit late.

He
replied that she no longer knew

who he was, that she had not

recognized him in
five years now.

I was surprised, and asked him,

‘And you still go every
morning, even though she

doesn’t know who you are?’

He smiled as he
patted my hand and said,

‘She doesn’t
know me, but I still know who she is.’

I had to hold back
tears as he left, I had goose bumps

on my arm, and thought,

‘That is
the kind of love I want in my life.’

True love is
neither physical, nor romantic.

True love is an
acceptance of all that is,

has been, will be, and will not
be.

With all the jokes
and fun that are in e-mails,

sometimes there is one that comes

along that has an
important message..

This one I thought I could share with you.

The
happiest people don’t necessarily

have the best of everything;

they just make
the best of everything they have.

I hope you share this with someone you
care about. I just did..

‘Life isn’t about
how to survive the storm,
But how to dance

in the rain.’

We are all getting Older

Tomorrow may be our turn.

The Post Office . . .(must read!)

Someone in the Postal Service needs to be rewarded

A letter from the Post Office… this is absolutely the best!!
We don’t know who replied, but there is a beautiful soul working in the dead letter department who understands
LOVE……………………..

Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month.

The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was
crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey.

She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to
heaven, God would recognize her.

I told her that I thought that we could, so she dictated these words:

Dear God,
Will you please take care of my dog?
Abbey died yesterday and is with you in heaven.
I miss her very much.

I ‘m happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.

I hope you will play with her.
She likes to swim and play with balls.

I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog.

I really miss her.
Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey & Meredith,
addressed it to God/Heaven.

We put our return address on it.

Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she
said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven.
That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office.

A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet.
I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch
addressed, ‘To Meredith’ in an unfamiliar hand.

Meredith opened it.
Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies.’

Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God
in its opened envelope.

On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,

Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I
recognized her right away.

Abbey isn’t sick anymore.
Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart.

Abbey loved being your dog.

Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to
keep your picture in so I’m sending it back to you in this little book for
you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.

Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you
write it and sending it to me.

What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you.

I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much.

By the way, I’m easy to find.
I am wherever there is love.

Love,
God

Don’t say you’re too busy to forward this.
Just go ahead and do it.
