Laugh a little!
A friend in Canada sent me this and after a long trip back from Central America this week, it made me laugh. Thought you could use it as well!
Love to you, Sandi
A POEM BY MAYA ANGELOU
“When I was in my younger days, I weighed a few pounds less,
I needn’t hold my tummy in -To wear a belted dress.
But now that I am older, I’ve set my body free;
There’s comfort of elastic -Where once my waist would be.
Inventor of those high-heeled shoes My feet have not forgiven;
I have to wear a nine now, But used to wear a seven.
And how about those pantyhose- They’re sized by weight, you see,
So how come when I put them on -The crotch is at my knee?
I need to wear these glasses As the print’s been getting smaller;
And it wasn’t very long ago -I know that I was taller.
Though my hair has turned to gray -And my skin no longer fits,
On the inside, I’m the same old me, It’s the outside’s changed a bit.
But, on a positive note… I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or
how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.
I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she
handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, tangled Christmas tree lights.
I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents,
you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve
learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People
love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made
THIS IS A GOOD ONE!
A middle aged woman had a heart attack and was taken
to the hospital. While on the operating table she had
a near death experience. Seeing God, she asked “Is my
time up?” God said, No, you have another 43 years, 2 months and
8 days to live.”
Upon recovery, the woman decided to stay in the
hospital and have a facelift, liposuction, and a tummy
tuck. She even had someone come in and change her hair
color. Since she had so much more time to live, she
figured she might as well make the most of it.
After her last operation, she was released from the
hospital. While crossing the street on her way
home, she was killed by an ambulance. Arriving in
front of God, she demanded, “I thought you said I had
more than 40 years left. Why didn’t you pull me from out of
the path of the ambulance?”
God replied, “I didn’t recognize you.”
