As I get older, I realize…

1. I talk to myself because there are times I need expert advise.

2. I consider “in style” to be clothes that still fit.

3. The biggest lie I tell myself is “I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

4. I thought getting old would take longer!!

Values

The minister was officiating at a wedding. At a point in the service, the clergyman asked if anyone had anything to say concerning the union of the bride and groom.

The moment of utter silence was broken when a beautiful young woman carrying a child stood up and started walking slowly towards the minister.

The congregation was aghast – you could almost hear a pin drop.

The groom’s jaw dropped as he stared in disbelief at the approaching young woman and child.

Chaos ensued.

The bride threw the bouquet into the air, burst out crying and ran from the church.

Then the groom’s mother fainted.

The best men started giving each other looks and wondering how to save the situation.

The minister asked the woman, “Can you tell us, why you came forward? What do you have to say?”

There was absolute silence in the church.

The woman replied, “We can’t hear you in the back.”

And that my friend, illustrates what happens when people are considered guilty until proven innocent.
