My first submission was sent to me by my good friend and mentor, Warrior Wanda.  Moral of the story, girls -- you have a choice about giving up your power...




The Princess


 Once upon a time, in a land far away, a beautiful, independent, self-assured princess happened upon a frog as she sat contemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near her castle.

  The frog hopped into the Princess' lap and said “Elegant Lady, I was once a handsome Prince, until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.  One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back into the dapper, young Prince that I am and then, my sweet, we can marry and setup housekeeping in yon castle with  my Mother, where you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my  children, and forever feel grateful and happy doing so.”

 That night, on a repast of lightly sautéed frogs legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled to herself and thought:

 I don't freaking think so.

Not sure who sent this one to me, but I does let you know that things could always be worse...

Another way to keep our lives in perspective.
If you're having a bad day, consider the following:

 1. The average cost of rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez 
oil spill in Alaska was $80,000. At a special ceremony, two of the 
 most expensively saved animals were released back into the wild 
 amid cheers and applause from onlookers.  A minute later, in full 
 view, they were both eaten by a killer whale.
 2. A psychology student in New York rented out her spare room to a
 carpenter in order to nag him constantly and study his reactions. 
 After weeks of needling, he snapped and beat her repeatedly with
 an ax leaving her mentally retarded.
 3. In 1992, Frank Perkins of Los Angeles made an attempt on the world
 flagpole-sitting record.  Suffering from the flu he came down eight 
hours  short of the 400 day record, his sponsor had gone bust, his girlfriend 
had  left him and his phone and electricity had been cut off.
 4. A woman came home to find her husband in the kitchen, shaking
 frantically with what looked like a wire running from his waist 
towards  the electric kettle.  Intending to jolt him away from the deadly 
current,  she whacked him with a handy plank of wood by the back door, 
 breaking his arm in two places.  Until that moment he had been
 happily listening to his Walkman.
 5. Two animal rights protesters were protesting at the cruelty of
 sending pigs to a slaughterhouse in Bonn. Suddenly the pigs,
 all two thousand of them, escaped through a broken fence and
 stampeded, trampling the two hapless protesters to death.
 And finally.......
 6. Iraqi terrorist, Khay Rahnajet, didn't pay enough postage on a 
letter  bomb. It came back with "return to sender" stamped on it. Forgetting 
 it was the bomb, he opened it and was blown to bits.
 There now! Your day's not so bad, is it?

 Those of you that know me, know that I do have a true love for the beauty of the English language.  And often I see that beauty realized most touchingly in the form of prayer.  A friend and minister sent me an e-mail a few years ago with the following prayer, which I saved, and which I lovingly pray for all of you.

May today there be peace within you. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing that you are a child of God. Let his presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, and to bask in the sun. It is there for each and every one of you.
