my weekend

November 21st, 2005 (09:19 pm)

here's my busy weekend update...

friday--went to the hockey game with a couple of friends and kevin, i get free tickets from work and we always invite a bunch of people...then when it comes time to go to the games EVERYONE backs out and i throw tickets away, so this time we got 12 tickets (thinking everyone had committed to joining us) but ended up tossing 6 of them away :(...i hate when that happens, but the game was fun anyway!

we went to old chicago and met up with some other friends who always are at OC. the guy, Landon, has finished 4 beer tours... if that tells you how much $$ and time they have spent there

Saturday--had to get up early and go to work...it was a realllllly easy day....typically we are overloaded with patients who weren't seen the day before as well as the normal load of ortho (total knees/hips, backs, etc), but this weekend was slow and i clocked out at noon

my grandma has been in the hosp ~1 wk, after she broke her hip and had to have surgery, so i visited her before i went home to get ready for the second half of the day

Saturday pm--got home and made pumpkin fudge to take to a going away party for a girl from work, but first we had to get to kevin's dad's house for thanksgiving dinner, which consists of a bunch of crazys getting together to eat dinner...then we went to the going away party for Mariah (she's moving to KC) drank some wine and smirnoff twisteds (mmmmmm those are good), then made our way to Oscar's-at the warren in old town to watch the UFC pay per view, it was okay but the company wasn't

so we left, after the fights, to go to the brickyard to meet up with some people from kevin's academy class, finally got home at 2:30--fyi that's late for becky

Sunday--laid around all day

the wooden bowl

October 16th, 2005 (08:12 pm)

how I feel: touched

got this from a friend

I guarantee you will remember the tale of the Wooden Bowl tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, a year from now.
A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter in-law, and four year old grandson. The old man's hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered. The family ate together at the table.
But the elderly grandfather's shaky hands and failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth.
The son and daughter in-law became irritated with the mess. "We must do something about father," said the son. "I've had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor."
So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner. There, Grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner. Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl.When the family glanced in Grandfather's direction, sometime he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone. Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food.
The four-year-old watched it all in silence.
One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor. He asked the child sweetly, "What are you making?"
Just as sweetly, the boy responded,"Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food in when I grow up." The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.
The words so struck the parents so that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done.
That evening the husband took Grandfather's hand and gently led him back to the family table. For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for some reason, neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled. On a positive note, I've learned that, no matter what happens, how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.
I've learned that you can tell alot about a person by the way he/she handles three things, a rainy day., lost luggage., and tangled Christmas lights.
I've learned that, regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.
I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life"
I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.
I've learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. But, if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, your work and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.
I've learned that whenever I decide to do something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.
I've learned that every day, you should reach out and touch someone.
People love that human touch-holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.
I've learned that I still have a LOT to learn.
