I just noticed, when using "view new posts" there is a page two! Check the bottom of your screen to make sure you see all the page numbers. It will change when a locked thread is moved out and into archives but since we have been adding threads in the Games Category, I suspect it will happen more often.

I just read this and loved it. I thought I would share it here.
This is a good lesson for all of us, no matter what stage of life you’re in. You’ll see what I mean.

A young woman went to her grandmother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her – her husband had cheated on her and she was devastated. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as soon as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her grandmother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.
In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl.

Turning to her granddaughter, she asked, ‘Tell me what you see.’

‘Carrots, eggs, and coffee,’ she replied.

Her grandmother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The grandmother then asked the granddaughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.

Finally, the grandmother asked the granddaughter to sip the coffee. The granddaughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The granddaughter then asked, ‘What does it mean, grandmother?’

Her grandmother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.
“Which are you?” she asked her granddaughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity? Do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain.. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level?
How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can’t go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so at the end, you’re the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

May we all be like the COFFEE.

I would be scared driving, walking on the sidewalk or waiting for a bus if these people were on the road, seriously.

I am so glad I was able to visit the 9-11 Memorial a couple of weeks ago in NYC. It's crazy but I felt a peaceful energy. It was suppose to be a sad place but I got a feeling of my heart being full, where I was finally able to be close and say a prayer.

I'm sure I speak for many, we will never ever forget the events of 9-11. IMO Watching the strength of a country brought the rest of the world a little closer.

God Bless America
8 yrs ago I visited the site along with my GD. It had a wire fence
wrapped around where you could look through and see construction 
workers at work with their heavy machinery. When an overwhelming
saddness took over us, at the same time we both burst into tears
. We speak of it often as the feelings still remain.
I'm sure we were feeling the utter devastation that took place
on that horrific day. Vibes, post cognitive, call it w hat you may
it was real . Since, I have heard from others that said the same occurred
to them. (the spontaneous, involuntary burst of tears) on a positive note
I will visit again to visit the Memorial built for the hero's of our great nation.

Once again, Happy, you have posted something we all need to pay attention to. This video should be required watching for every driver's education class in the entire world. And it wouldn't hurt if every adult driver watched it, too. On another forum I used to be one, one of the poster's daughter was texting and driving. She lost control of her car, hit a tree, and died. She was 22 years old. We can all learn something from this.

We went to the 9/11 memorial site 3 years ago. It was so moving.

We were talking to friends about it last night and I found out that one had a friend on one of the flights and another saw the flight that crashed in Shanksville go over their city. My heart goes out to all the survivors and everyone who lost someone that day.
