The New Year is here, but seems the news is still the same,”BAD!” Have you ever wondered how a “Good News” station would go over? A news that reports all the good news. How a nobody saved a youngster's life or how that if you use Vodka, you can get stains out of things. Maybe we’re just conditioned to hear all the bad, blood and guts news.
The Obituaries should be the only sad news that’s reported. Too, that’s not all that bad, if they lived long enough. But, then, how long is long enough? We hang a lot of black wreaths these days on every situation, or it seems like it to me.
That’s why funny e-mails are so great. Some have funky old songs that play along with the animated message. Some are about getting old and they’re really funny. But, they are actually true. There are pictures of puppies, kitties and other cute animals that have a moralistic or funny story to them. Most e-mails bring a smile or chuckle, and there are those who bring a story to warm your heart. There are some that bring comfort and hope. But, the ones that talk of friendship are the best. But, I tend to delete the ones that say, “A VIRUS IS COMING, A VIRUS IS COMING!” Yaw, the Russians were coming in the 50’s, too!
P.S. Sharing part of my Christmas gift from a book Shannon gave me for Christmas. This comes from photos of signs on churches around the country, photographed by Donald Seitz. “Worry is interest paid on trouble before it is due.” Methodist church in Thomsom, Georgia.
