Your goal should be just out of reach, but not out of sight. – Anita Defrantz
Welcome fellow travelers and seekers of peace, happiness, and truth:
A couple a months ago someone shared a funny story with me. So I felt this month of September it would be appropriate for me to share it with you:
An old country doctor went way out into the boonies to deliver a baby. It was so far out, there was no electricity. When the doctor arrived, no one was home except for the laboring mother and her five-year-old son. The doctor instructed the child to hold a lantern high so he could see to deliver the baby. The child held the lantern, the mother pushed, and after a while, the doctor lifted the newborn baby by the feet and swatted him on the bottom to get him to take his first breath.
Watching in wide-eyed wonder, the five-year-old shouted, “Hit him again! He shouldn’t have crawled up there in the first place!”
Little kids’ instructions on life:
- When your dad is mad and asks, “Do I look stupid?” Don’t answer him.
- Never try to baptize a cat.
- Never trust a dog to guard your hamburger.
- Never tell your little brother/sister you’re not going to do what your mom told you to do.
School is in session. Enjoy those moments with your kids, grand’s, nieces & nephews. Remember, this too shall pass.
Free Your Mind,
Donald ‘Dr. D.’ Tate
