A friend just forwarded this ...
Posted Mar 25 2010 9:27pm
A friend just forwarded this to me... it's ironic, b/c a couple of other friends and I were discussing these things JUST THIS WEEK! Enjoy!
At the end of this is a quote of the month by Jay Leno.. If you don't read anything else, please read what he said. Very well stated, Mr. Leno.
TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE 1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!!
First, we survived being born to mothers
smoked and/or drank
while they were
blue cheese dressing
Tuna from a can
didn't get tested for diabetes
Then after that trauma,
we were put to sleep on our tummies
baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-base paints
no childproof lids
on medicine bottles,
Locks on doors or cabinets
and when we rode
our bikes, we had baseball caps
on our heads.
As infants and children,
we would ride in cars with
no car seats
No booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes
Riding in the back of a pick-up truck
on a warm day
was always a special treat.
from the garden hose
and not from a bottle.
shared one soft drink with four friends
From one bottle and no one actually died from this..
We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon.
We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar.
we weren't overweight
Because we were
Always outside playing...that's why!
We would leave home in the morning and play all day,
As long as we were back when the
Streetlights came on.
No one was able
to reach us all day...
And, we were O.K.
We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps
and then ride them down the hill, only to find out
we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes
a few times, we learned to solve the problem.
We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's and X-boxes.
There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable,
No video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's,
No cell phones,
No personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms.
WE HAD FRIENDS
And we went outside and found them!
We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth
and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.
We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt,
And the worms did not live in us
We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays,
Made up games with sticks and tennis balls and,
Although we were told it would happen,
We did not put out very many eyes..
We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and
Knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just
Walked in and talked to them.
Little League had tryouts and
not everyone made the team
Those who didn't had to learn to deal
The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law
was unheard of.
They actually sided with the law!
These generations have produced some of the best
Risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever.
The past 50 years
Have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility,
and we learned how to deal with it all.
If YOU are one of them,
You might want to share this with others
who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the
lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives
for our own good.
While you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know
how brave and lucky their parents were.
Kind of makes you want to run through the house
with scissors, doesn't it?
The quote of the month is by Jay Leno:
"With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control,
mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms
tearing up the country from one end to another,
and with the threat of swine flu
and terrorist attacks.
Are we sure this is a good time
to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?'
For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us... ..go ahead and delete this.
For the rest of us...pass this on.
A Small Prayer!
God determines who walks into your life....
it's up to you to decide who you let walk away,
who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go...
When there is nothing left but God, that is when you find out that God is all you need.
Take 60 seconds and give this a shot!
All you do is simply say the following small prayer for the person who sent you this.
Father, God bless my friend in whatever it is that You know they may need this day!
And may their life be full of your peace, prosperity, and power
as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with You.
