Lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address:
A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy
winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon
20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their
travel plans. So, the husband left Minneapolis and flew to Florida on Thursday, with
his wife flying down the following day. The husband checked into the hotel. There
was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife. However, he
accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error,
sent the email.
Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her
husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart
attack. The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives
and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted. The widow's
son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer
screen which read:
To: My loving wife
Subject: I've arrived Date: July 10, 2007
I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are
allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked
in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking
forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
P.S. Sure is hot down here!!!!!
Fun Things To Read
Overland Park, Ks.
One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for
hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up
anyway. It just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a
shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what
was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was
astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the
donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he
would shake it off and take a step up.
Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of
the well and happily trotted off!
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of
the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a
steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never
give up! Shake it off and take a step up.
Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.
Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.
Live simply and appreciate what you have.
