MY QUALITY TIME BLOG #WISDOM #JOKES..."Success in marriage is more than finding the right person: it is being the right person." #998...


There she was just a-walkin' down the street, singin'

Did you watch the Kentucky Derby Saturday? If you did, or didn’t, there is a great lesson to learn from the winner, Medina Spirit. You see, Medina Spirit was born to a dam that was unable to produce milk for him initially. Less than a year after he was foaled, he was sold for the minimum $1,000 (meaning he only received a single bid) at the Ocala Breeder’s Sale. He eventually ended up with Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, not with Bob, but with his assistant Mike Marlow. Medina Spirit kept surprising them by outworking the more expensive colts that Baffert's stable attracts. He had heart.
Saturday, Medina Spirit proved that hard work, discipline, and application of God-given gifts produce a winner. It didn’t matter that Medina Spirit wasn’t as big as other horses, wasn’t the perfect color, wasn’t as expensive, and didn’t come from Kentucky. He showed up at the race not knowing how little he cost, gave his all in heart and body…and WON the Kentucky Derby.
If a horse can do it, how much better can you? Or do you let others determine your worth and heart? Came in an email.. Thanks to the author...

After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife came for counseling. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married. On and on she went describing the neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, and her feeling unloved and being unlovable. She set out an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured. Finally, the therapist got up, walked around the desk, and after asking the wife to stand, he embraced and kissed her long and passionately as her husband watched. The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze. The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week. Can you do this?" "Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I play golf."

Today's Quotes... "The best things in life can never be kept;
They must be given away.
A Smile, a Kiss, and Love.
If you are asking if I'd hurt you, the answer is never.
If you are asking if I love you, the answer is forever.
If you are asking if I want you, the answer is I do.
If you are asking what I value most, the answer is YOU.
Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be."
"A minute of success pays for years of failure."
"Take away love and our earth is a tomb."
"The great mind knows the power of gentleness."
"Success in marriage is more than finding the right person: it is being the right person."
- Robert Browning
