Re: OT: to my friends

Pam: Staying warm is not really an option for me at this time of
year...I get cold about mid-October and don't really warm up again until
July...that's the consequence of chronic anemia (it's a hereditary
thing, not an iron deficiency)...today it was in the low 20's but with
winds gusting in excess of 20 miles an hour, it brought the wind chill
factor down to single digits...tough driving on the interstate too with
winds like that...but the silver lining is that it freeze dried all the
roads in just a few hours...it has been very rainy/drizzling here for a
couple of days and things were very wet and icy slick...but bitterly
cold winds did the trick and though we are cold, we are dry! So it is
safe to drive once again! Thanks for the kind words, though...the
thought is appreciated! :-)

all of you...<br>><br>>Fwd: I think you will really like this, so make

sentence...enjoy<br>><br>>There once was a little girl who had a bad
temper. Her mother gave her a<br>>bag of nails and told her that every
time she lost her temper, she must<br>>hammer a nail into the back of
the fence. The first day the girl had<br>>driven 37 nails into the
fence. Over the next few weeks, as she learned<br>>to control her anger,
the number of nails hammered daily gradually<br>>dwindled down. She
discovered it was easier to hold her temper than to<br>>drive those
nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the girl<br>>didn't lose
her temper at all. She told her mother about it and the<br>>mother
suggested that the girl now pull out one nail for each day that<br>>she
was able to hold her temper. The days passed and the young girl
was<br>>finally able to tell her mother that all the nails were gone.
The mother<br>>took her daughter by the hand and led her to the fence.
She said, "You<br>>have done well, my daughter, but look at the holes in
the fence. The<br>>fence will never be the same. When you say things in
anger, they leave a<br>>scar just like this one. " You can put a knife
in a person and draw it<br>>out. It won't matter how many times you say
I'm sorry, the wound is<br>>still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a
physical one.<br>><br>><br>>Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. They
make you smile and encourage<br>>you to succeed. They lend an ear, they

e words of praise and they<br>>always want to open their hearts to
us.<br>><br>><br>>Show your friends how much you care. Send this to
everyone you consider<br>>a FRIEND, even if it means sending it back to
the person who sent it to<br>>you. If it comes back to you, then you'll
know you have a circle of<br>>friends. Happy Friendship week! You are my
friend and I am honored. Now<br>>send this to every friend you have!!
And to your family. Please forgive<br>>me if I have ever left a hole in
