The dash

 I read of a man who stood to speak 
at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone 
from the beginning…to the end.

He noted that first came the date of her birth 
and spoke of the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most of all 
was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time
that she spent alive on earth 
and now only those who loved her
know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own, 
the cars…the house…the cash
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard;
are there things you’d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
that can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough 
to consider what’s true and real
and always try to understand 
the way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger 
and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives
like we’ve never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect
and more often wear a smile…
Remembering that this special dash 
might only last a little while.

So when your eulogy is being spoken 
with your life’s action to rehash, 
would you be pleased of the things they say 
about how you spent your dash?

Про маму

Кто пpишёл ко мне с yтpа?
Кто сказал: "Вставать поpа"?
Кашy кто yспел сваpить?
Чаю - в пиалy налить?
Кто косички мне заплёл?
Целый дом один подмёл?
Кто цветов в садy наpвал?
Кто меня поцеловал?
Кто pебячий любит смех?
Кто на свете лyчше всех?

Неделя мам!!!

Неделя мам!!!
эта неделя посвящается нашим любимым мамам!! Один день в год мы поздравляем мам с этим праздником, но они ведь так много для нас делают! Растят нас- детей, потом внуков. Один особенный день для них мало! Поэтому эту всю неделю я посвящаю мамам!!!
