    Star* call 911........call 911

    If you can start the day off without caffeine
    If you can get going without pep pills
    If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains
    If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles
    If you can eat the same food day after day and be grateful for it
    If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time
    If you can take criticism and blame without resentment
    If you can ignore a friends limited education and never correct them
    If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend
    If you can face the world without lies and deceit
    If you can conquer tension without medical help
    If you can relax without liquor
    If you can sleep without aid of drugs
    If you can honestly say that deep down in your heart that you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, or politics

    Then MY FRIEND You are ........Almost as good as your dog..........

    If you can start the day off without caffeine - not often
    If you can get going without pep pills - they make pep pills?
    If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains - need to work on this
    If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles - definately need to work on this
    If you can eat the same food day after day and be grateful for it - need to work onthe grateful part
    If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time - I do not understand this. When they can give others and each other time, but not me. Always something else to do / go.
    If you can take criticism and blame without resentment - Always a challenge to work on. Even when i think I can do this, some things are obviously sensitive and I need to work on that.
    If you can ignore a friends limited education and never correct them - I think I can. never noticed.
    If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend - This I KNOW I treat everyone equal.
    If you can face the world without lies and deceit - I may occassionaly mislead, but I do not lie.
    If you can conquer tension without medical help - cannot do this
    If you can relax without liquor - don't drink at all
    If you can sleep without aid of drugs - cannot sleep without the aid of drugs. I blame it on my work schedule.
    If you can honestly say that deep down in your heart that you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, or politics.....
    THIS is why I am responding. I do not see color or religion or anything else. I have always taught my children that EVERY person has the same heart and soul. Everyone has feelings. Everyone should work together for a common goal. Happiness.

    Then MY FRIEND You are ........Almost as good as your dog.........I will never be as good as my Chloe.
