    The Wooden Bowl

    I guarantee you will remember the tale of the Wooden Bowl tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now,
    A year from now.

    A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year-old grandson.
    The old man's hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered

    The family ate together at the table. But the elderly grandfather's shaky hands and
    Failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor.
    When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth.

    The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess.
    'We must do something about father,' said the son.
    'I've had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor.'

    So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner.
    There, Grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner.
    Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl.

    When the family glanced in Grandfather's direction, sometimes he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone.
    Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food.

    The four-year-old watched it all in silence.

    One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor.
    He asked the child sweetly, 'What are you making?' Just as sweetly, the boy responded,
    'Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food in when I grow up.
    ' The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.

    The words so struck the parents so that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done..

    That evening the husband took Grandfather's hand and gently led him back to the family table.
    For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for some reason,
    Neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled.

    On a positive note, I've learned that, no matter what happens, 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 four things:
    A rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

    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 nee d to be able to throw something back sometimes.

    I've learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you
    But, if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others,
    Your work and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you

    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 that human touch -- holding hands, 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 you should pass this on to everyone you care about .I just did.


    I am not going to be the one who lets it die. I found it believable --
    Angels have walked beside me all my life--and they still do


    This is to all of you who
    Mean something to me,
    I pray for your happiness.
    The Candle Of Love, Hope & Friendship

    This candle was lit on the
    15th of September, 1998

    Someone who loves you has helped
    Keep it alive by sending it to you.

    Don't let The Candle of Love, Hope and Friendship die
    life is short and borrowed make the BEST of it to the fullest. Life
    is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat
    you right.. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens
    for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
    If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be
    easy, they just promised it would be worth
