The Moment It Hit Me

It has been 8 months since it hit me. What hit me? Where I relocated to.I moved to Tucson 11 months ago and have never been able to find anything near where I live. ShopFromHomepage was created to provide merchants the opportunity to let us know where they are: the site is undergoing construction, so enjoy the entertainment for now!

Written by a housewife from New Jersey.

4th of July seems somewhat appropriate.

"Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or
was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on
September 11, 2001?

Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans,
not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the
Potomac from our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a
horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was
"desecrated" when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it
wet?...Well, I don't. I don't care at all.

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in
and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the
Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of
which is a crime in Saudi Arabia .
I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry
for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his
gurgling slashed throat.
I'll care when the cowardly so-called "insurgents" in
Iraq come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own
religion by hiding in mosques.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves
up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of
their suicide bombs.

I'll care when the American media stops pretending that
their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international
law instead of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.
In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave
marine roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this:
I don't care.

When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi
prisoners who have been humiliated in what amounts to a college- hazing
incident, rest assured: I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when
he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take
it to the bank: I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and
a prayer mat, and fed "special" food that is paid for by my tax dollars,
is complaining that his holy book is being "mishandled," you can
absolutely believe in your heart of hearts: I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's
spelled "Koran" and other times "Quran." Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and-you
guessed it-I don't care !!

If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all
your E-mail friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to the people
responsible for this ridiculous behavior!

If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete
button. Should you choose the latter, then please don't complain when
more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great
Country! And may I add:

"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they
made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that
problem." -- Ronald Reagan

I have another quote that I would like to add
AND.......I hope you forward all this.

"If we ever forget that we're One Nation Under God, then
we will be a nation gone under." Also by.. Ronald Reagan

One last thought for the day:

In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the
Anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's
Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked
by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America, he
said: "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many
want in... And how many want out."

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.

One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

This week we celebrate a special birthday. Monica Lewinsky turned 31.

Can you believe it?

It seems like only yesterday she was crawling around the White House on her

hands and knees, and putting everything in her mouth.

They grow up so fast, don't they?

Rules to Live By
from A. Friend

1. Never give yourself a haircut after three alcoholic beverages of any kind.
2. You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
3. The five most essential words for a healthy, vital relationship are "I apologize" and "You are right".
4. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
5. When you make a mistake, make amends immediately. It's easier to eat crow while it's still warm.
6. The only really good advice that your mother ever gave you was: "Go! You might meet somebody!"
7. If he/she says that you are too good for him/her believe them.
8. Learn to pick your battles. Ask yourself,:Will this matter one year from now? How about one month? One week? One day?
9. Never pass up an opportunity to pee.
10. If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You have another chance!
11. Living well really is the best revenge. Being miserable because of a bad or former relationship just might mean that the other person was right about you.
12. Work is good, but it's not that important.
13. And finally, be really nice to your friends and family. You never know when you are going to need them to empty your bedpan.

by Erma Bombeck

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day. I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage. I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.

I would never have bought anything! just because it was practical, wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later. Now go get washed up for dinner." There would have been more "I love yous" More "I'm sorrys."

But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute...look at it and really see it . .live it and never give it back.


Don't worry about who doesn't like you , who has more, or who's doing what Instead, let's cherish the relationships we have with those who do love us. Let's think about ! what God HAS blessed us with, and what we are doing each day to promote ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally. I hope you have a blessed day.
