My evil step-monster’s most un-forgivable sin:
Lying to his mother in saying she did not know how to contact me;
I was a nurse by then; I would have cared for him until his dying breath,
washed his body prn…

I was his closest friend; and yet two others @ least got to say good-bye.
I just barely missed finding him…

* Co-incidentally, there is/was another man
with the same name and birthdate somwhere on the Web.

I didn’t buy this for me; At present I’m an [underweight] ectomorph, so it must’ve been for friends. It’s a Rodale Press book, so I’ll keep it for now.

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
~ Henri Nouwen

Some people never seem motivated to participate, but are just content to watch while others do the work.
They are called “Spec Taters.”

Some people never do anything to help, but are gifted at finding fault with the way others do the work.
They are called “Comment Taters.”

Some people are very bossy and like to tell others what to do, but don’t want to soil their own hands.
They are called “Dick Taters.”

Some people are always looking to cause problems by asking others to agree with them. It is too hot or too cold, too sour or too sweet.
They are called “Agie Taters.”

There are those who say they will help, but somehow just never get around to actually doing the promised help.
They are called “Hezzie Taters.”

Some people can put up a front and pretend to be someone they are not.
They are called “Emma Taters.”

Then there are those who love others and do what they say they will. They are always prepared to stop whatever they are doing and lend a helping hand. They bring real sunshine into the lives of others. They are called “Sweet Taters.”  If you know any “Sweet Taters” send this to them!

Real Friend Test

A Real Friend Test:

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest. A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps themself.

A simple friend has never seen you cry. A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears.

A simple friend doesn’t know your parents’ or childrens’  first names. A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book.

A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party, A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help clean up.

A simple friend hates it when you call after theybhave gone to bed. A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.

A simple friend seeks to talk to you about your problems. A real friend seeks to help you with your problems.

A simple friend wonders about your romantic history. A real friend could blackmail you with it.

A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument. A real friend calls you after you had a fight.

A simple friend expects you to always be there for them. A real friend always expects to be there for you.

A simple friend reads this e-mail and deletes it. A real friend passes it on to other friends…

Thanks to…and CLP
