So you are not happy with your lot in life, so what?
little Known Facts:
1. The dot that appears over the letter i is called a "tittle."
2. If you were to spell out numbers, you would you have to go until 1,000 until you would find the letter A.
3. Montpelier, VT is the only U.S. state capital without a McDonalds.
Leave it to Paula (paulinescountrytales) to make me think. Her post mentioning folks who are always griping or mad about something. She mentioned a lady with no arms, and how grateful she was to have her arms.
As a kid there were two cashiers at the “Park ‘n Shop” grocery store who worked back to back. They were Violet and Daisy Hilton conjoined sisters (Siamese twins). Folks like me looked at them with wonderment. We had no idea of their past. In their past they were very famous throughout the world. Born in England, sold to a bar tender. Displayed from the age of 3 as ‘freaks’.
Taken over the world as virtual prisoners with no say so over their lives. Finally were able to reach an attorney and break free only to be taken advantage of again and never saw their $5000 a week salary. They were dropped in Charlotte. There is much more to the story, but can you imagine the life.
Violet and Daisy were joined at the hips. The shared some blood vessels. A virus took them to their grave near the time MLK jr. was assassinated.
When I was a kid we stopped every once in a while at a china shop, Spindale, NC (I think). The owner had no arms and made change, packed dishes, etc, all with his feet and toes. Over the years his toes grew a little longer and he could use them about like fingers. It always amazed me.
Every see a guy named Nick Vujicic? With no arms or legs he is a motivational speaker. One of the best, you hear no crying from him.
Yep so many more, Helen Keller? How can one even imagine her strength?
YES, fussing, crying, complaining people should take a look around them and THANK GOD for arms, legs, and enough food to fill our needs. For eyes! YES and even EARS! Every night I remove my implant devices and the world goes silent. I cannot hear a jet engine. I am so glad I can hear, even artificially. WOW how wonderful to hear, even mechanical voices are heaven to NONE!
Let's quit bitching.
