Blast from the Past

Love is in the air.....

Marriage Counseling
 A husband and wife came for counseling after 20 years of marriage
 When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate,
painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 20
years they had been married. She went on and on and on: neglect,
  lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured over the course of their marriage.
Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately as her husband watched with a raised eyebrow.
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 three times a week. Can you do this?'
The husband thought for a moment and replied, 'Well, I can drop
 her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I fish.'



Today is Lance Armstrongs birthday...
What words of wisdom do you have for us?

A boo is a lot louder than a cheer. If you have 10 people cheering and one person booing, all you hear is the booing.
Lance Armstrong

If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell.

If you worried about falling off the bike, you'd never get on.

Two things scare me. The first is getting hurt. But that's not nearly as scary as the second, which is losing.

Winning is about heart, not just legs. It's got to be in the right place.
