    The smell of rain

    At the end of this story, it gives you two options. I think you will figure out what option I chose.

    A cold March wind danced around the dead of night in Dallas as the doctor walked into the small hospital room of Diana Blessing. She was still groggy from surgery.

    Image001

    Her husband, David , held her hand as they braced themselves for the latest news.
    That afternoon of March 10, 1991, complications had forced Diana, only 24-weeks pregnant, to undergo an emergency Cesarean to deliver couple's new daughter, Dana Lu Blessing.



    At 12 inches long and weighing only one pound nine ounces, they already knew she was perilously premature.

    Image005


    Still, the doctor's soft words dropped like bombs.

    'I don't think she's going to make it,' he said, as kindly as he could.

    Image006

    'There's only a 10-percent chance she will live through the night, and even then, if by some slim chance she does make it, her future could be a very cruel one' 

    Image007


    Numb with disbelief, David and Diana listened as the doctor described the devastating problems Dana would likely face if she survived.
     

    Image008


    She would never walk, she would never talk, she would probably be blind, and she would certainly be prone to other catastrophic conditions from cerebral palsy to
     complete mental retardation, and on and on.

    Image009


    'No! No!' was all Diana could say.

    She and David, with their 5-year-old son Dustin, had long dreamed of the day they would have a daughter to become a family of four.

    Image010


    Now, within a matter of hours, that dream was slipping away.

    Image011

    But as those first days passed, a new agony set in for David and Diana. Because Dana 's underdeveloped nervous system was essentially 'raw', the lightest kiss or caress only intensified her discomfort, so they couldn't even cradle their tiny baby girl against their chests to offer the strength of their love.
    All they could do, as Dana struggled alone beneath the ultraviolet light in the tangle of tubes and wires, was to pray that God would stay close to their precious little girl.

    There was never a moment when Dana suddenly grew stronger.

    Image012


    But as the weeks went by, she did slowly gain an ounce of weight here and an ounce of strength there.

    Image013


    At last, when Dana turned two months old. her parents were able to hold her in their arms for the very first time.
     

    Image014


    And two months later, though doctors continued to gently but grimly warn that her chances of surviving, much less living any kind of normal life, were next to zero, Dana went home from the hospital, just as her mother had predicted.

    Image015


    Five years later, when Dana was a petite but feisty young girl with glittering gray eyes and an unquenchable zest for life.


    She showed no signs whatsoever of any mental or physical impairment. Simply, she was everything a little girl can be and more. But that happy ending is far from the end of her story.

    Image018


    One blistering afternoon in the summer of 1996 near her home in Irving , Texas , Dana was sitting in her mother's lap in the bleachers of a local ball park where her brother Dustin's baseball team was practicing.


    As always, Dana was chattering nonstop with her mother and several other adults sitting nearby, when she suddenly fell silent. Hugging her arms across her chest, little Dana asked, 'Do you smell that?'

    Image019


    Smelling the air and detecting the approach of a thunderstorm, Diana replied, 'Yes, it smells like rain.'

    Dana closed her eyes and again asked, 'Do you smell that?'

    Image020



    Once again, her mother replied, 'Yes, I think we're about to get wet. It smells like rain.'

    Still caught in the moment, Dana shook her head, patted her thin shoulders with her small hands and loudly announced,
    'No, it smells like Him.

    Image021


    It smells like God when you lay your head on His chest.'

    Image022


    Tears blurred Diana's eyes as Dana happily hopped down to play with the other children.

    Before the rains came, her daughter's words confirmed what Diana and all the members of the extended Blessing family had known, at least in their hearts, all along.

    Image023



    During those long days and nights of her first two months of her life, when her nerves were too sensitive for them to touch her, God was holding Dana on His chest and it is His loving scent that she remembers so well.

    Image024



    You now have 1 of 2 choices. You can either pass this on and let other people catch the chills like you did or you can delete this and act like it didn't touch your heart like it did mine.

    IT'S YOUR CALL!

    'I can do all things in Him who strengthens me.'

    This morning when the Lord opened a window to Heaven, He saw me, and He asked: 'My child, what is your greatest wish for today?' I responded:
    'Lord please, take care of the person who is reading this message, their family and their special friends. They deserve it and I love them very much' The love of God is like the ocean, you can see its beginning, but not its end..

    Salesman 

    ———- Forwarded message ———-
    From: Ralph & BA
    Date: 12 August 2011 03:45
    Subject: Fwd: Salesman

    A young guy from North Dakota  moves to  Florida  and goes to a big
    "everything under one roof" department store looking for a job.
     
    The Manager says, "Do you have any sales experience?"
     
    The kid says, "Yeah. I was a salesman back in  North Dakota."
     
    Well, the boss liked the kid and gave him the job.
     
    "You start tomorrow. I'll come down after we close and see how you did." 
           
    His first day on the job was rough but he got through it.  After the store was locked up
    the boss came down. "How many customers bought something from you today?
     
    The kid says, "One".
     
    The boss says, "Just one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers a day.
    How much was the sale for?"
     
    The kid says, "$101,237.65".
     
    The boss says, "$101,237.65?" What the heck did you sell?"
     
    The kid says, "First I sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him a medium fish hook.
    Then I sold him a larger fish hook. Then I sold him a new fishing rod. Then I asked him
    where he was going fishing and he said down the coast, so I told him he was going to
    need a boat so we went down to the boat department and I sold him a twin engine Chris Craft.
    Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive
    department and sold him that 4×4 Expedition."
     
    The boss said, "A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a BOAT and a TRUCK?"
     
    The kid said, "No the guy came in here to buy Tampons for his wife and I said,
    "Dude, your weekend's shot – you should go fishing".

    The thoughts have been around before but the presentation is cute.  BA

    

     
     

     

     

      

    'LIFE' THOUGHTS BY 'DUCKY'

    Image0011

    I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with 'Guess' on it.

    So I said 'Implants?'  She hit me.

    Image0011

    Marriage changes passion.

    Suddenly you're in bed with a relative.

    Image0011

    Now that food has replaced sex in my life, I can't even get into my own pants.

    Image0011

    How come we choose from just two people to run for president and over fifty for Miss  America  ?

    Image0011

    When I was young we used to go 'skinny dipping,' now I just 'chunky dunk.'

    Image0011

    I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose fitting clothing.  If I HAD any loose fitting clothing, I wouldn't have signed up in the first place!

    Image0011

    Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could simply press 'Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over?  AMEN, AMEN!

    Image0011

    Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

    Image0011

    Wouldn't you know it…..

    Brain cells come and brain cells go, but FAT cells live forever.

    Image0011

    Why is it that our children can't read a Bible in school, but they can in prison?

    A completely brilliant question!!!!!!!

    Image0011

    Bumper sticker of the year:
    'If you can read this, thank a teacher –
    and, since it's in English, thank a soldier'

    Image0011

    Why do I have to swear on the Bible in court when the Ten Commandments cannot be displayed outside?

    Another completely brilliant question!!!!

    And remember:

    Life is like a roll of toilet paper.

    The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

    You just might want to pass this along…

    It is not common for a Koala to bear twins and, regrettably in this instance,

    the Mum was struck and killed by a passing car. 
    Fortunately, the driver stopped,

     

    and took the mother to the local vet,

    not knowing she was dead – where it was soon discovered
    that she had these twins in her pouch.
     
    First photo: Tiny Koala being fed with syringe…so tiny!!

     

    Followed by a pictorial chronology of their growth…

    It is just so nice to see a story that has a happy ending

    Taking care of others is a great way to forget about our
    own problems and difficulties!

    How To Call The Police

    HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD, AND DON'T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.

    George Phillips, an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

    He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"

    He said "No," but some

    people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.

    Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available"

    George said, "Okay."

    He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.

    "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now." and he hung up.

    Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

    One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

    George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

    (True Story) I LOVE IT! Don't mess with old people.

    Carnation Milk 71 years ago–AND IT’S TRUE

    Be sure to open the attachment after you read what happened.  bA

    Got this from a friend of mine over the weekend…..ya know I had to pass it along.  J

    Truthfully spoken by some one who knew. 

    Carnation Milk 71 Years Ago …. This is  PRICELESS 

    A little old lady from Wisconsin had worked in and around her family dairy farms since she was old enough to walk, with hours of hard work and little compensation. 
      
    When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores in approximately the 1940s, she read an advertisement offering $5,000 for the best slogan. The producers wanted a rhyme beginning with

    'Carnation  Milk is best of all.'
     
    She thought to herself, I know all about milk and dairy farms. I can do this! She sent in her entry, and several weeks later, a black limo pulled up in front of her house. 
     
    A man got out and said, 'Carnation' LOVED your entry so much! We are here to award you $2,000 even though we will not be able to use it!' 
     
      
      
     
    True story!!

    Traffic Camera


    A man was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera. He figured that his picture had been taken for exceeding the limit, even though he knew that he was not speeding… Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed.

    Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the area again, but the traffic camera again flashed.

    He tried a fourth time with the same result. He did this a fifth time and was now laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past, this time at a snail's pace.

    Two weeks later, he got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt.

    You just can't fix stupid.

    This will make every human's heart beat a little faster.

    The proper way to roll a car!  
    What an exciting ad for the new Mercedes!

    If any of you were ever to roll a car – this is the proper way to do it!  
    The stretch of highway that this ad was filmed on is in the Fraser Canyon, British Columbia, Canada  
    The tunnel they did this in is the China Bar Tunnel on Highway 1 just North of Spuzzum.  
    The car is a new Mercedes.
    Make sure that your sound is on.
