Lessons From The Ants

This is how we should teach the kids about a simple but powerful concept: the Ant Philosophy. Everybody should study ants. They have an amazing four-part philosophy.
First, ants never quit. That’s a good philosophy. If they’re headed somewhere and you try to stop them, they’ll look for another way. They’ll climb over. They’ll climb under. They’ll climb around. They keep looking for another way. What a neat philosophy—to never quit looking for a way to get where you’re supposed to go.

Second, ants think winter all summer. That’s an important perspective. You can’t be so trusting as to think summer will last forever. So ants gather their winter food in the middle of summer.

Third, ants think summer all winter. During the winter, ants remind themselves, “This won’t last long; we’ll soon be out of here.” And at the first warm day, the ants are out.
Fourth. How much will an ant gather during the summer to prepare for the winter? All he possibly can.

Wow, the ant philosophy. Never give up, look ahead, stay positive and do all you can.

Now enjoy your breakfast moment.

5 Rules To Being Happy

A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud man, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o'clock, with his hair fashionably coiled and shaved perfectly applied, even though he is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today. His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, he smiled sweetly when told his room was ready.

As he maneuvered his walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of his tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on his window.

"I love it," he stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.

"Mr. Jones, you haven't seen the room; just wait."

"That doesn't have anything to do with it," he replied.

"Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn't depend on how the furniture is arranged ... it's how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it "It's a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do.

Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I'll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I've stored away. Just for this time in my life.

Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw from what you've put in.

So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories! . Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing." Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.
and 6. Enjoy your breakfast moment.

Gender Humor

Just a little gender humor, and a quick break from the rat race.

You may not know this but many non-living things have a gender.
  1. Ziploc bags are Male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.
  2. Copiers are Female, because once turned off, it takes awhile to warm them up again. It's an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.
  3. A Tire is Male, because it goes bald and it's often over-inflated.
  4. A Hot air balloon is Male, because, to get it to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under it, and of course, there's the hot air part.
  5. Sponges are Female, because they're soft, squeezable and retain water.
  6. A Web page is Female, because it's always getting hit on.
  7. A Subway is Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.
  8. An Hourglass is Female, because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.
  9. A Hammer is Male, because it hasn't changed much over the last 5,000 years, but it's handy to have around.
  10. A Remote control is Female. Ha! You thought it'd be male didn't you? But consider this - it gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying!"
Keep smiling & always enjoy your breakfast moment!

Does GOD Exist?

DOES GOD EXIST? This is one of the best explanations on the nature of God that I have ever read.

A man went to a barber shop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects. When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: "I don't believe that God exists."

"Why do you say that?" asked the customer. "Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn't exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things."

The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn't want to start an  argument. The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop.

Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt. The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber: "You know what? Barbers do not exist." "How can you say that?" asked the surprised barber. "I am here, and I'm a barber. And I just worked on you!"

"No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside."

"Ah, but barbers DO exist! That's what happens when people do not come to people like me."

"Exactly!" "That's the point! GOD, too, DOES EXIST! That's what happens when people do not go to Him and don't look to Him for help. That's why there's so much pain and suffering in the  world."

If you think God exists, share this blog to other people. BE BLESSED & BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS!

And have a blessed breakfast moment.

The Sick Child and His Mother

A child came crying to his mother and complained that he has severe stomach ache. She told him, “It is because your belly is empty. Come and have some food.” The child obeyed.

The next day, the mother had a heavy head ache. The child consoled her, saying innocently, “Mommy, it is because your head is empty!”

On another occasion, the curious child asked his mother, “Mommy, why are some of your hairs turning gray?” She tried to use this occasion to reform him. “It is because of you, dear. Every bad action of yours will turn one of my hairs gray!” The child replied innocently, “Now I know why your mother has only gray hairs on her head.”

Have a funny breakfast moment.

Rich Man Poor Man

Remember the story of a poor man and a rich man who were shipwrecked together? Who do you think survived? The poor man survived because his hands were free, while the rich man drowned because he held on and would not let go of his two bags so full of money and pieces of jewelry.

If only he gave one of his bags to the poor man... but no, selfish as he was, he held on to his riches and wealth down to his watery grave.

If only he gave one of his bags... he could have helped a poor man, and he could have saved his life, he could have even saved his soul...

Dad's Letter

This is for all the fathers. Imagine yourself as a very old man, what kind of a letter will you make for your sons?

This is what I came up for my two wonderful boys. To Marvin Ace and Mark Ace, this is for you. I love you so much. Papa will be home soon...

Dear Sons,

On the day when you see me old, weak and weary, have patience and try to understand me. If I get dirty when eating, if I cannot dress on my own, please bear with me and remember the times I spent feeding you and dressing you up. If, when I speak to you, and repeat the same things over and over again, please do not interrupt me. Listen to me. When you were small, I had to read to you the same story a thousand and one times until you went to sleep.

When I do not want to have a shower, please neither shame nor scold me. Remember when I had to chase you with your thousand excuses to get you to the shower? When you see my ignorance of new technologies, help me navigate my way through those world wide webs.

I taught you how to do so many things, to eat the right food, to dress appropriately, to fight for your rights. When at some moment I lose the memory or the thread of our conversation, let me have the necessary time to remember. And if I cannot, please do not become nervous, as the most important thing is not our conversation, but surely to be with you and to have you listening to me.

If ever I do not feel like eating, please do not force me. I know well when I need to and when not to eat. When my tired legs give away and do not allow me to walk without a cane, please lend me your hand. The same way I did when you tried your first faltering steps. And when someday I say to you, That I do not want to live anymore, that I want to die, do not get angry because someday you will understand. Please try to understand that my age is not just lived but survived. Someday you will realize that, despite my mistakes, I always wanted the best for you and I tried to prepare the way for you.

You must not feel sad, angry nor ashamed for having me near you. Instead, try to understand me and help me like I did when you were young. Help me to walk. Help me to live the rest of my life with love and dignity. I will pay you with a smile and by the immense love I have always had for you in my heart.

I love you both very much,

Love Spell

Sometimes we close our eyes and just listen to the echoes of our hearts. We all fall in love, and there are times that we love so much that we lose ourselves in our own emotions. More often than not, we wonder why there are love that grows and love that grows cold. We would start to search for answers and try to find real love has gone wrong. But in the end we find ourselves where we started.

We cannot question love when it has its own reasons. Love will always be as it always has been - silent, mysterious, and deeply profound. Many of us believe that love is forever, that love never dies. Only to be dis-illusioned in the end when we find our hands empty and our hearts longing. We mistakenly have looked at love as a need to be fulfilled; but love is only a gift given to us. We should not hold it in our hands for we may never find the strength to let it go when it decides to leave. We should only embrace its warmth and glow while it lasts and then freely open our hearts when it's time to say goodbye.

when we fall in love with someone we don't want that feeling to end for it is everything we are and everything that we wanted to be. We pray that love will stay and grow in our hearts. But if it doesn't then we should never let our lives be taken by it for life should not end where heartaches begin. There is always a reason why we have to move on when we have to say goodbye to the feelings we wanted to stay forever. Let us not waive our hands with a heavy heart. For love will have to set it wings free and find a place where it belongs. We may have lost it but then again when we close our eyes and listen to the echoes of our hearts we will hear that feeling resounding silently forever. Then we'll know that it has never left us for the good that we have become because of love will always stay. It will always be there reminding us that we should be thankful and happy not because we have lost love but because for once in our lives that feeling lived in our hearts and made us happy.
