Women are like apples

Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy.

The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

Share this with women who are good apples, even those who have already been picked!

Kid's thoughts on love

Kids Thoughts on Love

Thanks, Animated Vixen for sending this via bulletin. It was beautiful!

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, "What does love mean?"

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love."
Rebecca- age 8

"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth."
Billy - age 4

"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other."
Karl - age 5

"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs."
Chrissy - age 6

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."
Terri - age 4

"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."
Danny - age 7

"Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss"
Emily - age 8

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen."
Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,"
Nikka - age 6

"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday."
Noelle - age 7

"Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well." (awwwww, isn't that the truth!)
Tommy - age 6

"During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore."
Cindy - age 8

"My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night."
Clare - age 6

"Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken."
Elaine-age 5

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford."
Chris - age 7

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day."
Mary Ann - age 4

"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones."
Lauren - age 4

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you." (what an image)
Karen - age 7

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross."
Mark - age 6

"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget."
Jessica - age 8

And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbour was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbour, the little boy said,

"Nothing, I just helped him cry." (This one really made the Spirit stir within me!)

I have never had so many men vying for my attention...

...since I lived in Spain. My gosh, now I know why I do NOT GO TO CLUBS Well ok, it was wonderfully ego boosting...I mean 20 minutes there, a guy tells the bartender that he wants to buy me a drink. He's real cute (the guy...AND the bartender, lol) and so the bartender asks me, "what you drinking?"

"Shirley Temple" I said seriously. The bartender started laughing. Ok so it IS funny...but hey, that's me :)

So then I keep looking at the guy to thank him but he doesn't look at me. Now for those of you who don't know me, I have ZERO skills in bar/club etiquette. I have no idea how this all works. I don't go to bars/clubs. But suddenly before I know it he's at my side...and I mean LITERALLY at my side. He's pushing into me, chatting it up, blah blah blah. Well he asks me to dance and I go dance a few numbers with him..you know, bumping and grinding kind of thing, which I haven't done in a LONG time. I go back to my post at the bar, get some water, and the midnight countdown is approaching..so he and his two friends grab me and at midnight he kisses me. Ok so that was weird for me, lol. Well after another dance, the girlfriend of his hot friend comes up to me and tells me, "you know, Eric really is in to you. He's shy, but as soon as he saw you walk in, he knew he wanted to buy you a drink and get to know you. But I know how it is to be hit on by men you're not interested in. So just let me know...I'd rather break his heart than have you do it." She was really cool...I told her, "hey, I'm not looking for anything, as long as he understands that, we're cool."

Later, his friend comes over and informs both of us that we are gorgeous, and gorgeous women like us need to be dancing. Gilly and I just looked at each other and started to laugh...but we promised him we'd be out there if they stopped playing Ricky Martin :)

Anyway, at the countdown Gilly wasn't out on the floor with us (I think she was on the phone) but the funny thing is...she ended up kissing him too! More like making out, LOL. She said to me that she thought he was cute..and since I didn't seem so interested, could she go for the kill? I was like "hey, I don't care!" So they started doing shots together, and then "Yeah" by Usher came on, so this hot guy named Bruce pulled me out on the dance floor...very good dancer I might add...and before you know it, I see Gilly totally GRINDING with Eric :) Man that girl can DANCE! Bruce looked over and said, "man they're going at it!" I just couldn't help but smile. I was glad they were hitting it off.

Well after midnight they started selling roses so some other random guy buys a rose and hands it to me. Bruce is telling me what a damn hot body I have and what a fantastic dancer I am....at the end of the night he gave me a rose, too. I got asked to dance by ANOTHER guy when they started playing the last few songs before bar time... and then at 2am another guy leans over to use Gilly's lighter and informs me how stunning I am. Yeah, go figure.

Ok before anyone thinks I'm tooting my own horn, trust me, people, this is NOT something I'm used to. I always figured I was good-looking, but damn, I am just not used to all that. It was so weird...I mean it felt good to know I looked hot and was desirable in person (not just online lol) but what do you do when one guy is grinding his crotch into your knee, has his arm around you while making out with one of your best friends and some other guy is talking to you and trying to get you to stay for the after party?? Girls, how do you normally deal with this?? And let me remind you, I was dead SOBER.

But anyway, I smell like smoke (yuck) and I'm home...it was fun, they played so much hip/hop and stuff that I am used to listening to. But I don't think I'm going to make clubbing a regular thing, LOL....maybe only those times I'm needing an ego boost:)

Well Happy New Year everybody..I hope 2006 brings you everything you hope for and more!
