    Good motto to live by ...
    "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand - strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride! "
  • I love it! Thanks for sharing.
  • Thanks. I totally agree.
  • I have already sent it on to several people. Love it. Thanks.
  • Good one, Ellis!

    The one I received said to not send it back to the sender, as she had already received so many that her inbox was full.
  • It's funny that this post came up this morning because I received this via e-mail this morning as well and liked it:

    For all you beautiful women...

    From Deb Martin, Sapphire Grace and all the Visual Poets!!

    In honor of women's history month and in memory of Erma Bombeck who lost
    her fight with cancer. Here is an angel sent to watch over you. Pass
    this on to five women that you want watched over. If you don't know five
    women to pass this on to, one will do just fine.

    IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER - by Erma Bombeck (written after she found
    out she was dying from cancer).

    I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth
    would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.

    I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it
    melted in storage.

    I would have talked less and listened more.

    I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was
    stained, or the sofa faded.

    I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried
    much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the

    I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his

    I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.

    I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day
    because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

    I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.

    I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more
    while watching life.

    I would never have bought anything just because it was practical,
    wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

    Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished
    every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the
    only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

    When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later. Now
    go get washed up for dinner." There would have been more "I love you's."
    More "I'm sorry's."

    But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every
    minute...look at it and really see it. Live it and never give it back.
    Stop sweating the small stuff.

    Don't worry about who doesn't like you, who has more, or who's doing

    Instead, let's cherish the relationships we have with those who do love

    Let's think about what God HAS blessed us with. And what we are doing
    each day to promote ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally. I hope
    you all have a blessed day.

    Beautiful Women's Month

    Age 3: She looks at herself and sees a Queen.

    Age 8: She looks at herself and sees Cinderella.

    Age 15: She looks at herself and sees an Ugly Sister (Mum I can't go to
    school looking like this!)

    Age 20: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too
    tall, too straight/too curly"- but decides she's going out anyway.

    Age 30: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too
    tall, too straight/too curly" - but decides she doesn't have time to fix
    it, so she's going out anyway.

    Age 40: She looks at herself and sees "clean" and goes out anyway.

    Age 50: She looks at herself and sees "I am" and goes wherever she wants
    to go.

    Age 60: She looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who
    can't even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers
    the world.

    Age 70: She looks at herself &sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes
    out and enjoys life.

    Age 80: Doesn't bother to look. Just puts on a purple hat and goes out
    to have fun with the world.

    Send this on to all the women you are grateful to have as friends. Maybe
    we should have all grabbed that purple hat earlier. Please send this to
    phenomenal women today in celebration of Beautiful Women's Month. If you
    do, something good will happen: you will boost another woman's self
  • Thanks Ellis, I loved it! Will pass it on to my buddies.
