    I'm straining to come up with something to be thankful for today, which is why I've come to this thread. LOL. This thread keeps me grounded sometimes and I come here when I'm in a funk in an effort to positive self talk myself out of it.

    So-- I am thankful for this thread!

    And, I'm thankful I haven't gotten the flu (yet) that has been raging through our house this week.

    This email that I had sent to me before, but needed a reminder so I share it with you all


    The Mayonnaise Jar
    When things in your life seem almost too much to handle,
    When 24 hours in a day is not enough;
    remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

    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 start 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
    it 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 an unanimous 'yes.'

    The professor then produced two cups of coffee 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 - God, family,
    children, health, friends, and favorite passions
    Things that if everything else was lost
    and only they remained, your life would still be full.

    The pebbles are the things that matter like your job, house, and 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.

    So...

    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.

    There will always be time
    to clean the house and fix the dripping tap.

    '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 coffee 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 cups of coffee with a friend.'


    TGIF!!! All
