Meaningful Monday

~ Reflections~

A little boy and his father were walking in the mountains.

Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams,



To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating,

somewhere in the mountain:"AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"


Curious, the little boy yells: "Who are you?"

He receives the answer: "Who are you?"


And then the boy screams to the mountain: "You're Stupid"

The voice answers: "You're Stupid"


Frustrated at the response, the boy screams: "I Hate You"

He receives the answer: "I Hate You"


He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?"

The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention."


The man screams: "You are a champion!"

The voice answers: "You are a champion!"


The boy is surprised, but does not understand.

Then the father explains: "People call this ECHO,

but really this is LIFE. It gives you back

everything you say or do.

Our life is simply a reflection of our actions."


If you want more love in the world,

create more love in your heart.

If you want people to respect you, respect them.

This relationship applies to everything,

in all aspects of life.

Life will give back to you everything you have given to it.

The information that I gave to you on my World Diabetes Day post concerning the dLife television program was wrong. The correct information is:

It airs on CNBC

Sundays, 7PM EST

Hope today is the first day of a blessed week for all.

I'd read this before somewhere, but it bears repeating.

Hope you have a great week as well, dear Jo! ;o)

Love and hugs,

I just love your "Reflections" post, Jo, and it's all so very true.

I hope you have your diabetes under control. Ed is having a struggle with his, four shots a day.

This is realy nice. I haven't seen it before.
Grandma always said, "what you give you get."
When I was a kid I didn't understand because when I gave cousin Carol my doll, I didn't get it back. It took time to learn the truth of the story you have posted and the older I get the more it rings true.
