While at the park one day,
a woman sat down next to a man
on a bench near a playground.
“That’s my son over there,” she said,
pointing to a little boy in a red sweater
who was gliding down the slide.
“He’s a fine looking boy” the man said.
“That’s my daughter on the bike in the white dress.”
Then, looking at his watch, he called to his daughter.
“What do you say we go, Melissa?”
Melissa pleaded, “Just five more minutes, Dad.
Please? Just five more minutes.”
The man nodded and Melissa continued to ride her bike
to her heart’s content.
Minutes passed and the father stood
and called again to his daughter.
“Time to go now?”
Again Melissa pleaded,
“Five more minutes, Dad. Just five more minutes.”
The man smiled and said, “OK.”
“My, you certainly are a patient father,” the woman responded.
The man smiled and then said,
“Her older brother Tommy was killed
by a drunk driver last year
while he was riding his bike near here.
I never spent much time with Tommy
and now I’d give anything
for just five more minutes with him.
I’ve vowed not to make the same mistake with Melissa.
She thinks she has five more minutes to ride her bike.
The truth is, I get Five more minutes to watch her play.”
Life is all about making priorities.
What are your priorities?
Give someone you love 5 more minutes of your time today!

that the ever so cool
Pumpkin Delight gave me.
It's interesting, right?
It's always nice to rewarded.
I recently got 3 awards from 3 WAY COOL bloggers.
The thing I love about blogging-
is that I feel like I have a new set
of friends that encourage me on this journey.
"The true measure of a person
is how they treat someone
who can do them absolutely no good."
P.S. Yes. I will indeed help you move a body... Pumpkin : )

It was so good!
I think it was the best play I ever saw.
And believe me, I have seen some great plays.
BBC's drama department was fantastic.
Kaish on the set. Isn't he the cutest?
