So True....

That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while. If they have the courage to apologise, then why not forgive them.

That true friendship can continues to grow, even over the longest distance, as long as you nurture it.

That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

You cannot have a friend of someone you do not trust.

That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel. Either we control our attitude or it controls us.

That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

That when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how old you are.

That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

That your life can suddenly be changed by people who don't even know you.

That even when you think you have no more to give, when a someone you love cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.

The Drunk Needed A Push

A man and his wife were awoken at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door. The husband reluctantly got up and went to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, was asking for a push. "Not a chance," said the husband, "it is 3:00 in the morning!" He slamed the door and returned to bed.

"Who was that?" asked his wife.

"Just some drunk asking for a push," he answered.

"Did you help him?" she asked.

"No, I didn't, it is 3:00 in the morning and it's pouring with rain out there!"

"Well, you have a short memory," said his wife. "Can't you remember about six months ago when we broke down and were stranded, those two guys helped us get home? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself"

The man did as he is told, got dressed, put on his hat and raincoat and went out into the pounding wind and rain. He called out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there mate?"

"Yes," came back the answer.

"Do you still need a push?" called out the husband.

"Yes, please!" came the reply from the dark.

"Where are you?" asked the husband.

"Over here on the swing," replied the drunk

Rules To Live Your Life By

Men are like...

Men are like...

... newborn babies. They're cute at first, but you get tired of picking up their rubbish.
... computers. Hard to figure out and never enough memory.
... coolers. Load them with beer and you can take them anywhere.
... chocolate bars. Sweet, smooth and they usually head right for your hips.
... remote controls. Simple. Easy to use. And usually lying around near a TV.
... shag carpets. Soft, fuzzy and extremely easy to walk on.
... vacuum cleaners. They're not much fun, but at least you get to push them around.
... road kill. They usually just lie around until they start to smell.
... soap operas. They're fun to watch, but don't believe everything you hear.
... pillows. Eventually, even the best ones get soft and lumpy.
... old car tires. Balding, full of hot air, and it never hurts to have a spare.
... plastic wrap. Cheap. Clingy. and very easy to see through.
... horoscopes. They always tell you what to do and are usually wrong.
... plungers. They spend most of their lives in a hardware store or the bathroom.

PS. Just as well I'm not like that.

The Frypan

Peter invited his mother for dinner, during the course of the meal, his mother couldn't help but notice how lovely Peter's flat mate, Joanne, was. She had long been suspicious of a relationship between the two, and this only made her more curious. Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Peter and his flat mate than met the eye.

Reading his mum's thoughts, Peter volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Joanne and I are just flat mates".

About a week later, Joanne came to Peter saying, "Ever since your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the frying pan, you don't suppose she took it do you?"

"Well I doubt it, but I'll email her just to be sure" said Peter.

So he sat down and wrote:

Dear mother,

I'm not saying you did take a frying pan from my house, but the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.

Love Peter.

Peter soon received an email from his mother which read:

Dear son,

I'm not saying that you do sleep with Joanne, but the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the frying pan by now.

Love mum.

The guys were all at Charlie's deer camp. No one wanted to room with Charlie, because he snored so badly. They decided it wasn't fair to make one of them stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns.

The first guy roomed with Charlie and comes to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot. They asked the first guy what happened and he said 'Charlie snored so loudly, I just sat up and watched him all night.'

The next night it was Frank's turn. In the morning, same thing, hair all standing up, eyes all bloodshot. They asked him the same thing and he said, 'Man, that Charlie shakes the roof with his snoring. I watched him all night.'

The third night was Billy's turn. Billy was a tanned, older cowboy, a man's man. The next morning he came to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

"Good morning!" he said.

They couldn't believe it. They said, 'Man, what happened?'

He said, 'Well, we got ready for bed. I went in and tucked Charlie into bed, patted him on the butt, then kissed him good night. Charlie sat up and watched me all night.'

There Are Nun So Blind

Two nuns are ordered to paint a room in the convent, with a warning from the Mother Superior not to get even a drop of paint on their habits. After conferring about this, the two nuns decide to lock the door of the room, strip off their habits, and paint naked...

In the middle of the project, there's a knock at the door. "Who is it?" calls one of the nuns.

"Blind man," replies a voice from the other side of the door.

The two nuns look at each other and shrug, both deciding that no harm can come from letting a blind man into the room. They open the door.

"Nice boobs," says the man. "Where do you want the blinds?"

The Irish Farmer & Bessie

A farmer named Seamus had a car accident. In court, the lorry company's hot-shot solicitor was questioning Seamus. "Didn't you say to the police at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine?'" asked the solicitor.
Seamus responded: "Well, I'll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favourite cow, Bessie, into the..."

"I didn't ask for any details", the solicitor interrupted. "Just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine!'?"

Seamus said, "Well, I had just got Bessie into the trailer and I was driving down the road...."

The solicitor interrupted again and said, "Your Honour, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the police on the scene that he was fine. Now several weeks after the accident, he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question."

By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Seamus's answer and said to the solicitor "I'd like to hear what he has to say about his favourite cow, Bessie".

Seamus thanked the Judge and proceeded. "Well as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favourite cow, into the trailer and was driving her down the road when this huge lorry and trailer came through a stop sign and hit my trailer right in the side. I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other.

I was hurt and I could hear old Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans. Shortly after the accident, a policeman on a motorbike turned up. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her, and saw her condition, he took out his gun and shot her between the eyes. 

Then the policeman came across the road, gun still in hand, looked at me, and said, 'How are you feeling? Now what would you say?"
