Sunday Evening

Ella's birthday was a huge success.  She loved all her gifts and was awed by all the people in the house.  And of course no 1st birthday would be complete without letting the honored guest have a go at their own cake.  A good time was had by all.


I also wanted to include the following heart warming story I received in an email earlier today.             

What Marriage Is All About

He ordered one hamburger, one order of fries and one soft drink.  The old man unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half. 

 He placed one half in front of his wife. 

 He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife. 

He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them.  As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around then kept looking over and whispering.

You could tell they were thinking.  "That poor old couple-all they can afford is one meal for the two of them."

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table .  He politely offered to buy another meal for the couple.  The old man said they were just fine-they were used to sharing everything.

The surrounding people noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite.  She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them.  This time the old woman said, "No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything."

As the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked, "What are you waiting for?"

She answered..........................

(This is great)
