... the tales of two sisters

Faith, Trust, Hope, Confidence, Love, Attitude

When I awoke early this morning and checked out the Newspaper headlines- (yes, I’m an ol’ school girl and still receive the Seattle Times), I sighed with sadness.
Nepal rescue efforts race against time to save lives. Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus on their improbable survival after being sex slaves and held hostage to house arrest.  Their perpetrator now deceased, and they are left to make reason of the unreasonable, and raise a child sired by him. A constant reminder of  love and loss of their own innocence. The Aurora theater shooting trial opens.  I tossed the paper and turned on the news and abruptly turned it off after watching a heart-broken Baltimore mother uncontrollably beat her teenage son for participating in the riots.
Just as I was ready to take a dose of  fukitol
and crawl back in the bed..
I turned on my computer, and this email from my deliciously precious aunt Margie auntiem
was my bright spot on this grim day of bad news.
Read and Enjoy!


 Once all villagers decided to pray for rain,


on the day of prayer all the people gathered,

but only one boy came with an umbrella.

That’s FAITH



When you throw a baby in the air,

she laughs because she knows you will catch her.

That’s TRUST

Every night we go to bed,

without any assurance of being alive the next morning

but still we set the alarms to wake up.

That’s HOPE


We plan big things for tomorrow

in spite of zero knowledge of the future.


We see the world suffering,

but still we get married and have children.

That’s LOVE



On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence

‘I am not 60 years old….

I am sweet 16 with 44 years experience’


Have a happy day,
live your life like the six stories!
