4 Top Things Men Should Never Do

I read this article by Diane Oatis, "10 Things Husbands Should Never Do" and I went wow. I absolutely agree with everything that she noted on the list. "Guys, we love you, we really do. But as wonderful as you are, every so often you do something that makes us want to jump out the nearest window (or push you out first). Please, please, don’t ever…"

My top four from the list are:

• Be unimpressed by a meal that took a lot of time and trouble. I don’t know whose fault this is (Food Network? Julie and Julia?), but every so often we get the idea that it would be fun to make stock and spend the day basting. If the result is less than earth-shattering, say something nice anyway.

• Know it all, especially in public. Oh, honey. While you’re going on at length about whatever it is, we’re taking the temperature of the room, and we know everyone’s starting to fidget.

• Say anything remotely critical about our new haircut. Sometimes getting a new cut goes well; sometimes it doesn’t. Usually we know the difference. Don’t rub it in.

• Expect a medal for doing a little housework. Umm…it’s your house too, right? For now, we’ll give you the bronze. Maybe someday, if you work hard enough, you can pick up a gold.

If you do not want to sleep on the couch


be in the dog house


get the cold shoulder when you want some loving


have your mate thinking of ways to kill you in your sleep......

then please, please do not make any negative, critical, or comical comments about my top four things men should never do.

What does your attitude say about you?

There once was a woman who woke up one morning,
looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today?"
So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.
"H-M-M," she said,
"I think I'll part my hair down the middle today?"
So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head.
"Well," she said,
"today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail."
So she did and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.
"YEA!" she exclaimed,
"I don't have to fix my hair today!"

Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary,
for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply,

Love generously,

Care deeply,
Speak kindly
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.

It's about learning to dance in the rain.

What does your attitude say about you?


This is the season of Joy, Happiness and Peace

This is the season of Joy, Happiness and Peace. Are you feeling joyful, happy and at peace? Or are you feeling a little discouraged because your money is not right, your son/daughter is on drugs, you lost your job and you are not sure how you are going to meet your family's needs. Whatever the reason is Jesus is the reason for the season, so don't let nothing steal your joy, happiness and peace.
