I'm back,been in the dumps with all the tornadoes,storms and the rising water in the "RED RIVER",the water is coming down stream,not sure when it will crest...here I am feeling sorry for myself,I realize just how fortunate I am....we take to many things for granted,when we should be thankful for the things we have...a lot of people have loss a great deal in this economy crisis slump,there are better times ahead,we will get through it.
Have you ever just sit quietly ,thought about some of the bad times you had? If not,think about it,you are much better off now,you have to have faith and work for what's better for you and yours....you have to have the understanding that it's not just money/materials things that matter,(but they do help),just open your heart and let the goodness flow in,there are going to be good times and bad,I guarantee you the good will out-weigh the bad...you can not expect to take all the time,you have to give also....you will realize that making others happy if they deserve it ,will also make you feel good /happy...it is a great feeling....I smiled at a lady once in the mall ,she just turn her head.....I didn't get angry at her...I really felt sorry for her...you see I am a good and funny person to know...I have a great sense of humor.....my man says you never know what to expect from me no telling what I will do or say,that much he has learned in the years we have been together,he would have it no other way,(GIGGLES)hopefully I will be going to visit a lady I had forgotten from chhildhood....maybe she can help me to remember some of the things I forgot about my childhood....I have so many memories that is coming back to me....I will keep you updated...So stay tuned: but hey it's just me......

When you marry,you should believe in your heart that it will be forever.If you don't,you're starting off on the wrong foot.For example,if you demand a prenuptial agreement,aren't you already foreseeing the end of the relationship,the dissolution of the marriage?You have to believe this is the only person in the world you want to spend the rest of your life with.If your heart and mind are in that place,then you've made a good start.
So before you make that leap of faith you should take your time and make absolutely certain you have picked the right partner.It's not only exciting and wonderful,keep in mind you are entering a binding legal contract and the biggest personal and financial transaction of your life.
Ask yourself a few questions.If you became ill would you trust this person with your medical care,maybe your life?Would you trust them with all your money and property?Can you love their parents?(you'll find out how important that is)
Do you want your children to be just like them? Do you want to change certain things about them?Are your goals the same?Are your tastes the same?Do you enjoy the same lifestyle?Do religious differences have significance?Does your partner have a good sense of humor?(boy,is that important)Finally,do you really know this person well?(You don't want unpleasant surprises later when you've tied the knot.)
Never marry with the expectation that you can change what you don't like about someone.You can't.You have to accept the whole package.
People who are thirty and older can put sexual attraction in it's proper perspective a little better.Marrying a little older is a good idea.If you are bowled over by physical attraction,you should stop and think how you'll feel when you've both got an extra twenty pounds around the waist and a few wrinkles.Will you still want take a romantic walk on the beach?Don't place too much importance on that powerful sexual feeling.Yes,it's important,but over time it becomes diluted and you may be left with not much else that matters.
Certain decisions should be made before you marry.Decide on your objectives.When you're going to buy a house,who is going to raise the children and who is going to work.If you are both going to work,you have to divide household responsibilities.This is a partnership and one partner should not be more burdened than the other.Marriage is hard work,but it is so worth the effort.It is very satisfying and very fulfilling.
Your spouse should be your best friend and should be treated as such.If you don't think of them that way,or they don't think of you that way,maybe you should reconsider.
So,marry,be joyful,be prosperous and tomorrow,I'll give you some tips on how to stay married.At least the ones that worked to keep my marriage alive and well.

Natasha was vacationing at the Mont Tremblant resort in Quebec.Quebec legislators are now seriously considering making helmets compulsory on the slopes,an excellent idea.
Natasha descended from a famous acting dynasty.Her mother was Vanessa Redgrave.She had an impressive body of work and was regarded as a fine actress in her own right.She is survived by her husband and two sons,Micheal,13 and Daniel,12.It's always very sad to see someone so young,vibrant and gifted snatched from a fulfilling life and loving family...My sympathy.

They stopped and stared at two shiny silver walls that could move apart and slide back together.The boy said,"Father,what is this?"
His father(never having seen an elevator before)replied,"I don't know son.I have never seen anything like it in my life ."
While they watched in amazement,a very fat,old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pushed a button.The walls parted and the lady wheeled between them into a small room.The walls closed and they watched the red numbers above the walls change sequentially.Then,they watched the numbers reverse themselves.
The Walls slid back and a gorgeous 24 year old blonde stepped out.The father leaned over,without taking his eyes off the beautiful woman,and said quietly to the boy,
"go get your mother."
