When one teaches, two learn.
“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.”

· Wouldn’t it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes; come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller!· Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We haven’t met yet!· The day the world runs out of wine & beer is just too terrible to think about!· I don’t trip over things, I do random gravity checks!· I don’t need anger management. I need people to stop pissing me off!· Old age is coming at a really bad time!· When I was a child I thought Nap Time was a punishment … now, as a grown up, it just feels like a small vacation!· The biggest lie I tell myself is … “I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”· Lord grant me the strength to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can & the friends to post my bail when I finally snap!· I don’t have gray hair. I have “wisdom highlights”. I’m just very wise.· My people skills are just fine. It’s my tolerance to idiots that needs work.· Teach your daughter how to shoot, because a restraining order is just a piece of paper.· If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would’ve put them on my knees.· The kids text me “plz” which is shorter than please. I text back “no” which is shorter than “yes”.· I like my middle finger best because it always sticks up for me!· I’m going to retire and live off of my savings. Not sure what I’ll do the second week.· When did it change from “We the people” to “screw the people”?· I’ve lost my mind and I’m pretty sure my kids took it!· Even duct tape can’t fix stupid … but it can muffle the sound!· Why do I have to press one for English when you’re just gonna transfer me to someone I can’t understand anyway?· Lord, Give me patience and give it to me NOW.· Of course I talk to myself, sometimes I need expert advice.· Oops! Did I roll my eyes out loud?· At my age “Getting lucky” means walking into a room and remembering what I came in there for.
It is not materialism that is the chief curse of the world, as pastors teach, but idealism. Men get into trouble by taking their visions and hallucinations too seriously.
