  • Yeah!!

    There was a man who had worked all of his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miser when it came to his money. Just before he died, he said to his wife, "When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me."

    And so he got his wife to promise him with all of her heart that when he died, she would put all of the money in the casket with him.

    Well, he died. He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there in black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket,
    the wife said, "Wait just a minute!"

    She had a box with her, she came over with the box and put it in the casket.

    Then the undertakers locked the casket down, and they rolled it away.

    So, her friend said, "Girl, I know you weren't fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband."

    The loyal wife replied," Listen, I'm an obedient wife and I can't go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him."

    You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!!!!?"

    "I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account and wrote him a check. If he can cash it, he can spend it."

    The Most Important Body Part

    My mother used to ask me:

    "What is the most important part of the body?"

    Through the years I would take a guess at what I thought was the correct answer.

    When I was younger, I thought sound was very important to us as humans, so I said, "My ears, Mommy."

    She said, "No Many people are deaf. But you keep thinking about it and I will ask you again soon."

    Several years passed before she asked me again. Since making my first attempt, I had contemplated the correct answer. So this time I told her,

    "Mommy, sight is very important to everybody, so it must be our eyes.

    She looked at me and told me, "You are learning fast, but the answer is not correct because there are many people who are blind."

    Stumped again, I continued my quest for knowledge. Over the years, Mother asked me a couple more times and always her answer was, "No, but you are getting smarter every year, my child."

    Then last year, my grandpa died.

    Everybody was hurt. Everybody was crying. Even my father cried. I remember that especially because it was only the second time I saw him cry.

    My Mom looked at me when it was our turn to say our final good-bye to Grandpa.

    She asked me, "Do you know the most important body part yet, my dear?"

    I was shocked when she asked me this now. I always thought this was a game between her and me. She saw the confusion on my face and told me,

    "This question is very important. It shows that you have really lived in your life.

    For every body part you gave me in the past, I have told you was wrong and I have given you an example why. But today is the day you need to learn this important lesson."

    She looked down at me as only a mother can. I saw her eyes well up with tears. She said,

    "My dear, the most important body part is your shoulder."

    I asked, "Is it because it holds up my head?" She replied, "No, it is because it can hold the head of a friend or a loved one when they cry.

    Everybody needs a shoulder to cry on sometime in life, my dear. I only hope that you have enough love and friends that you will always have a shoulder to cry on when you need it."

    Then and there I knew the most important body part is not a selfish one. It is sympathetic to the pain of others. People will forget what you said... People will forget what you did.... But people will NEVER forget how you made them feel.

    True or not, the story makes you stop and think.

    Be blessed. Be a blessing. Get your shoulder ready..

          A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, "What does love mean?" The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:
