  • A newborn's conversation with God...

    A newborn's conversation with God...

    A  baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow,
    but  how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
    God said,  "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care  of
    you."
    The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in  heaven I don't have to
    do anything but sing and smile to be happy."
    God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you.  And
    you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."
    Again  the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when
    people talk to me if I don't know the language?"
    God said,  "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words
    you will  ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will
    teach you  how to speak."
    "And what am I going to do when I want to talk to  you?"
    God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will  teach you
    how to pray."
    "Who will protect me?"
    God  said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its
    life."
    "But I will always be sad because I will not see you  anymore."
    God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and  will teach
    you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be  next to
    you."
    At that moment there was much peace in Heaven,  but voices from Earth
    could be heard and the child hurriedly asked,  "God, if I am to leave
    now, please tell me my angel's  name."
    God said, "You will simply call her, "Mommy"

  • THE PRICE OF CHILDREN!

    THE PRICE OF CHILDREN

    The cost of raising a child from birth to 18 to be $160,140.00 for a middle income family. That doesn’t even touch college tuition.

     But $160,140.00 isn’t so bad if you break it down into,

    $8,896.66 a year,

    $741.38 a month,

    $171.08 a week,

    $24.24 a day!

    that’s just over a dollar an hour.

     Still, you might think the best financial advice is “If you want to be rich, don’t have children.”

    Actually it’s just the opposite,

     WHAT DO YOU GET FOR YOUR $160,140.00?

     Naming rights. First, Middle, Last name,

    Glimpses of God everyday,

    Giggle under the covers every night,

    More love than your heart can hold,

    Butterfly kisses and Velcro hugs,

    Endless wonder over rocks, ants, clouds, and warm cookies,

    A hand to hold, usually covered with jelly and chocolate,

    A partner for blowing bubbles and flying kites,

    Someone to laugh yourself silly with, no matter what the boss said or how your stocks performed that day,

     

    For $160.140, you never have to grow up!

    You get to:

    Finger-paint,

    Carve pumpkins,

    Play hide-and-seek,

    Catch lightning bugs, and

    Never stop believing in Santa Claus.

     

                                                                    You have an excuse to:

    Keep reading “The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh”

    Watch Saturday morning cartoons,

    Go to Disney movies,

    And

    Wish upon a star.

     

     You also get to:

    Frame rainbows, hearts, and flower drawings under refrigerator magnets and collect:

    Spray painted noodle wreaths for Christmas,

    Hand prints sets in clay,

    And Mother’s Day cards with backward letters for Father’s Day.

     

     FOR $160,140.00 THERE IS NO BIGGER BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

     

    You get to be a hero just for:

    Retrieving a Frisbee of the garage roof,

    Taking the training wheels of a bike,

    Removing a splinter,

    Filling a wading pool,

    Coaxing a wad of gum out of bangs, and

    Coaching a baseball team that never wins but always gets treated to ice cream anyway.

     You get a front row seat to witness history:

    Her first step,

    His first word,

    Her first bra,

    His first date,

    Their first time behind the wheel.

     You get to be immortal.

     

    You get another branch added to your family tree, and if your lucky, a long list of limbs called grandchildren and great grandchildren in your obituary

     

    You get an education in psychology, nursing, criminal justice, communications, and human sexuality that no college can match.

     

    In the eyes of a child, you rank right up their under God.

     

    You have the power to:

    Heal a boo-boo,

    Scare away the monsters under the bed,

    Patch a broken heart,

    Police a slumber party,

    Ground them forever, and

    Love them without limits…

     

     

    So that one day they, like you, will love without counting the cost.

    That is quite a deal for the price!

    happy
