Good for the Soul - Page 4
We often stumble across videos and writings that just leave us with a good feeling.  It may not be rescue related, it may not be "Bully" related, but it's a good feeling to have one of the "Awwww" moments, or a good laugh.

This page is dedicated for this purpose.

Sand & Stone

TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING THROUGH THE DESERT.

DURING SOME POINT OF THE JOURNEY, THEY HAD AN ARGUMENT; AND ONE FRIEND SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE IN THE FACE.


THE ONE WHO GOT SLAPPED WAS HURT, BUT WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING, WROTE IN THE SAND - 'TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE' .

THEY KEPT ON WALKING, UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS, WHERE THEY DECIDED TO TAKE A BATH.

THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE  MIRE! AND STARTED DROWNING, BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM.

AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM THE NEAR DROWNING, HE WROTE ON A STONE:

'TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE'

THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND ASKED HIM, 'AFTER I HURT YOU, YOU WROTE IN THE SAND AND NOW, YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?'

THE FRIEND REPLIED, 'WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN IN SAND, WHERE WINDS OF FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AWAY..

BUT, WHEN SOMEONE DOES SOMETHING GOOD FOR US, WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE WHERE NO WIND
CAN EVER ERASE IT' .

LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND AND TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE.

THEY SAY IT TAKES A MINUTE TO FIND A SPECIAL PERSON, AN HOUR  TO APPRECIATE  THEM,

A DAY TO LOVE THEM, BUT THEN AN ENTIRE LIFE TO FORGET THEM.

THIS TO THE PEOPLE I'LL NEVER FORGET.   

TAKE THE TIME TO LIVE!

I JUST DID...

DO NOT VALUE THE THINGS YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE, BUT VALUE WHO YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE!

15 MAYBES

1. Maybe . . . We were supposed to meet the wrong people  before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.

2.. Maybe . . . When the door of happiness closes, another opens; but, often times, we look so long at the closed door that we don't even see the new one which has been opened for us.

3. Maybe . . . It is true that we don't know what we have until we lose it, but it is also true that we don't know what we have been missing until it arrives.

4. Maybe . . . The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way..

5. Maybe . . . The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; after all, you can't go on successfully in life until you let go of your past mistakes, failures and heartaches.

6. Maybe . . . You should dream what you want to dream; go  where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you  dream of and want to do.

7. Maybe . . . There are moments in life when you miss  someone -- a parent, a spouse, a friend, a child -- so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug  them for real. So once they are around you, appreciate them more.

8. Maybe . . . The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

9. Maybe . . . You should always try to put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that something could hurt you, it probably will hurt the other person, too.

10. Maybe . . . You should do something nice for someone  every single day, even if it is simply to leave them alone.  Profound!

11. Maybe . . Giving someone all your love is never an  assurance that they will love you back. Don't expect  love in return;  just wait for it to grow in their heart; but  if it doesn't, be content that it grew in yours.

12. Maybe . . . Happiness waits for all those who cry, all  those who hurt, all those who have searched, and all those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance  of all the people who have touched their lives .

13. Maybe . . . You shouldn't go for looks; they can  deceive; don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go
for someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a  smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile .

14. Maybe . . . You should hope for enough happiness to  make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy.

15. Maybe . . . You should try to live your life to the  fullest because when you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling but when you die, you can be  the one who is smiling and everyone around you crying.

Old Farmer's Advice:

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong. 

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled.

Meanness don't jes' happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.

Don't judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good, honorable life... Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

Don 't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with,
watches you from the mirror every mornin'.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.

If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around..

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.
Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight,
he'll just kill you.

And,

Philosophy for old age
