a friend of mine shared this with me, and i think that it's very meaningful. i'm sharing this with all the forumers here.

TWO GLASSES OF WINE

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in
a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 glasses of
wine... A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items
in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very
large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.
He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the
jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas
between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was
full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and
poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else He
asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a
unanimous 'yes.' The professor then produced two glasses of wine from
under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively
filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. 'Now,'
said the professor, as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize
that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important
things; your family, your children, your health, your friends, and your
favorite passions; things that if everything else was lost and only they
remained, your life would still be full.' The pebbles are the other
things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is
everything else; the small stuff. 'If you put the sand into the jar
first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small
stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.'
'Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play
with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner
out to dinner. Play another 18. Do one more run down the ski slope. There
will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of
the golf balls first; the things that really matter. Set your priorities.
The rest is just sand.' One of the students raised her hand and inquired
what the wine represented. The professor smiled. 'I'm glad you asked. It
just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's
always room for a couple of glasses of wine with a friend.' Share this
with a friend. I JUST DID

Just to share another moral story, maybe some of you must have read but i find it very interesting.



One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a
well. The animal cried piteously for hours as
the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the
well needed to be covered up anyway;
it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and
help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began
to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the
donkey realized what was happening and cried
horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he
quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally
looked down ! the well. He was astonished at what
he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his
back, the donkey was doing something amazing.
He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer's neighbors! continued to shovel
dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it
off and take a step up.

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey
stepped up over the edge of the well and
happily trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds
of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well
is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of
our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out
of the deepest wells just by not stopping,
never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

Free your mind from worries - Most n! ever happen.

Live simply and appreciate what you have.

Give more.

Expect less












NOW ...........

Enough of that crap . .. . The donkey later came back,
and bit the farmer who had tried to bury him.
The gash from the bite got infected and
the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.
!

MORAL FROM TODAY'S LESSON:

When you do something wrong, and try to cover
your ass, it always comes back to bite you.
