Don't Touch Me
An older couple is lying in bed one morning, having just awakened from a good night's sleep. He takes her hand and she responds, "Don't touch me." "Why not?" he asks. She answers back, "Because I'm dead." The husband says, "What are you talking about? We're both lying here in bed together and talking to one another." She says, "No, I'm definitely dead. He insists, "You're not dead. What in the world makes you think you're dead?" "Because I woke up this morning and nothing hurts."
The "I man" and I went for a ride in the car yesterday. It felt great to get away and just unwind. We didn't even stop at Dunkin Donut's either.Jeff and I bombed around together yesterday morning also. That was fun. You have to take advantage of every moment like that you can. Amanda, tell Jeff I had a great time, and that I'm grateful to him for not being mad at me for showing his baby picture a few days ago.
I didn't realize it,but apparently Momma and I are O-L-D. Yep, I was telling Jeff that Cindy and I have started thinking about the possibility of being a foster parent. His first response was a look of shock and he said sputtering" You guys are what 54 (as in Methuselah)years old why would you want to do that?" My answer? "Because". With out knowing it, I mentioned my conversation with Jeff to Momma and she too has been thinking about the same thing. Back to Jeff's question of why? Well for me and I think I can speak for Cindy too.
- Because we need to.They wouldn't ask for people it they didn't need them. I have experience (Albeit it's over 20 years ago, of dealing with kids in need of supervision.)
- Because we want to.
- Because we can.
- Because it's a challenge.
- Because there is a need. They wouldn't have asked for the help if they didn't need it. I found the ad in a local health related paper.
