Yeah, what life tosses at us on a whole is sometimes rough on us. Things like a house burns down, your boat sunk fifty-feet from shore and you are terrified of sharks or your best friend jumped off a bridge, your car breaks down in the middle of no-where and you suck at directions or you have a dentist appointment.
Lets talk about dentists for a moment.
They are not well liked by many people and they are associated with PAIN.
They talk to you asking question you can’t answer because the dentist has their hands in your mouth. They laugh and make-up their own answer for you, mostly getting the answer wrong making you speak seal-talk.
They have needles! That go in your mouth!
They twist and they pull and you can’t feel a thing.
IN YOUR MOUTH
This is a place where we put our food that we need to eat to stay alive and healthy, but not when all your teeth got pulled. At once. Can’t eat for days, especially if you have no dentures and there will be no dentures in your near future. You are eating jars of baby food for the first several weeks or close to it. You are starving somewhat of malnutrition.
The time arrived for gatherings of families and friends, children all screaming out joys of their Christmas toys. The
air-filled with the smell of turkey and stuffing, with the supper smells tickling your palate. You Love our gifts but you are not satisfied your starved. It has been three weeks and the best you can do is suck on straws.
Time to find a chair, take a seat at the dinning room table. The lay-out of food is a wonder to the eye. So much food all at one meal. people and children start to dig in, pass me this and pass me that and hand-in-hand criss cross all around. You had enough. You protest! What is wrong with you now they all wonder, why don’t you eat! I protest that too, you tell them. You all know i just had all my teeth pulled i can’t even chew on shit, but you get it nice and mushy and we will eat it.
For when you feel mushy, they come in handy, and no house should be without one.
A blender will get food nice and mushy.
Funny how we cry about not having money but what about our health? What is money without health. We can not buy health. We can how ever pay for health help, but for how long. Weeks, days? . . .Maybe a year or two?
What is more important? having money or having perfect health? Sure, it is awesome to have money, but way better to have the perfect
health to be able to have the money.
One day we will find MONEY IS NOTHING when it comes to having your HEALTH. MONEY will get you no where, where as YOUR HEALTH will get you EVERYWHERE.
Odd how when we are sick we cry for HEALTH and when we have MONEY We don’t even think about our HEALTH.
Now they are telling us 2012 will be the end of the world as we may know it . . .AS WE MAY KNOW IT . . .WHICH does not mean over. It means different. DECEMBER 2012 just before Christmas they say is the end . . .And Money will do you no good!
YOU will need your HEALTH, Water, Can-Goods, So-on and So-Forth. More should be talked about this as people tend to freak out instead of keeping their wits about themselves.
When i am sick, there is not one thought in my head about money, and when i have money i don’t think about my HEALTH
What happens when you finally get around to using one of the gift cards you received as a Christmas presents and the check out person informs you your gift card is no good? What then. I will tell you what then . . .You ask to see the manager and let him/her deal with the situation. And they do . . .
They tell you your card is no good. They ask you if you have the receipt . . .
Well no . . .The card is a gift. A Christmas present.
sadly enough i fully understand how the store will think the card is a dud on your part . . .People steal all the time and do other under handed things, it is the first thing the cash clerk has to think. The second thing they will think is that they are responsible for any money that does not add up at the end of the night where the profit are counted out. So someone is responsible for this money. And as far as they can see they are. IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE.
Yes understandable but not fair . . .NO SIR_REE NOT FAIR AT ALL. What are we to do about this . . .What can we do about this . . .We have the receipt but if the gift card did not scan when purchased what good is the receipt . . .None so we lose out both ways.
- We lose the money we did indeed pay for the gift card.
- We lose the use of the faulty card we bought.
- We lose our dignity standing at the cash arguing the card was a gift.
Well here is what we do, we see and chat with the person who gave the card as a Christmas gift and ask for the receipt.
Which was done in this case, as the matter of fact i am the buyer of the shopping gift card. I was at the store when my daughter tried to use it. But i did not have the receipt on me as i was not the one with the card, nor did i know the card was going to be used. But i was annoyed with the trouble she was having with this Christmas gift card i gave her.
So i gave her the receipt and she went shopping and as it turned out the receipt was not any good as the card was one of six that i had bought the same day, same time, as the rest.
Problem was when the cards were being swiped for the cost it was missed or something. So how do you fix that? You cry . . .well she cried. Now i have to go to the store Monday. I hate going to the store for stuff like that. I did it once and it was not pretty, although it did start out very nice, full of respect, and me on my first day of my period. Somebody is lucky somebody did not get hurt. Because i have a problem when things go from nice to bad and i am not the one making it bad.
Someone said once i was like a mad bull in heat . . .All i could do at that was laugh, as i could picture a mad bull in heat. Someone also said i had lips on me like barn doors flapping in a wind storm. I love laughing. I hope i laugh Monday.
So here we are once again celebrating the birth of baby Jesus, a child born to save us from our sins. But not to worry he will do just that and more if you ask and truly have faith.
Picture this . . .Someone had asked if it was okay, if they hung out with non believers, would that be a bad thing? They said, they themselves believed in the Lord and wanted to know if they should be friends with these non believers. SOMEONE actually said. “CHANGE YOUR FRIENDS!” The person just stood with their mouth opened dumbfounded because now they had a choise. Get rid of the friends and try to make new ones or not to heed those words.
WHAT? . . .JESUS walked amongst the sinners. It is the sinners that he kept by his side, always there for sinners to reach out to.
Jesus and our LORD loves us all no matter what. And there are laws to prove it. Ask a killer why he is still sitting in jail, for the love of Jesus. Get it?
We celebrate this love calling it christmas. Our Christ and we have mass. Because life is like that. Do i go to mass? No . . .Am i a believer? YES!
Christmas day is a day where the whole world is to be at peace. The birth of Jesus.
But do we celebrate this child or give gifts to friends and family? I think about the baby Jesus but i give gifts, is it in his honour i do this? I do not know. I talk of santa in his stead. Why? Because it is the way i was taught. Is it wrong? Maybe . . .But i figure, because i know Christmas is for Christ and gifts were brought to celebrate his life i celebrate the birth of my children during the Christmas season and give gifts but with the spirit of Christcringle, who ever he is. At least his name is Christ. I know it is not right, i’m just having fun. The Christmas season is like birthdays and Thangsgivings rolled up in one. We eat turkey . . .
