Topic: Thought for the Day (7/22)

Just Wondering, and no I wasn't even in the thinking room.  What if we took the section titled Humorous and changed it too "Thought For The Day"  I think it would be neat to check the site and and read a supportive thought to get the day rolling or a thought to go to sleep thinking of.  Everyone take a turn and if no one posts a thought, then go for it.  They can be originals or give credit to your favorite.   Positive,Clean, Supportive, Inspirational, consoling, Funny, etc.  No long poem or book, just a simple thought for the day.  I bet we all have plenty to share.  Chime in everyone and give your opinion.  I personally think the section Humorous is flat/not fizzy.

Jeff, another good idea from you. I think that not everyone finds humor in our situations.
I also gave an idea that we put our home towns in our profiles so that those who would like a closer buddy type system could form one or just call someone close to home. Tomorrow is Teddy's scan and I think set up then we will get the dates for the radiation. How life changes. We are more excited about the radiation set up than a night on the town!!!! Mmmmm  now that I think about it. What is a night on the town? smile:)

Well, not sure if this is the sort of thing you were thinking of, Jeff, but we are gathered round my Mom here in Chicago, she is slowly slipping away and I happened to see this thoughtful piece on life and death in the Chicago Tribune today:

(Edit: The link no longer works, cut and paste the quote into Google and it should still come up that way as of today, 11/16/11.)

The part that really caught me was:

"How has it happened? Have I become so thick-skinned that it fails to register with me that every day I live, I have miraculously escaped the opposite?"

Re: Thought for the Day (7/22)

Excellent suggestion Jeff.  It has literally been the least used section of the discussion boards.  We'll make that change.

Has anyone figured out this oldie yet?

What came first the chicken or the egg ? I still want to know! Pay attention to the little things in life today, as it will change the way you see tomorrow.

"Every new day is a GIFT...That's why we call it "the present"... I bought a note pad with this on it..got me thinking every day truly is a gift even the bad ones  p.s. Jeff don't know about egg or the chick but I do know they smell...:( ..(husband got 11 chicks...so I guess here the chick comes first then "hopefully" some eggs later smile
