Two traveling angels

Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night

in the home of a wealthy family.

The family was rude and refused to let the angels

stay in the mansion's guest room.

Instead the angels were given a small space in

the cold basement.

As they made their bed on the hard floor, the

older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it.

When the younger angel asked why, the older angel


"Things aren't always what they seem."

The next night the pair came to rest at the house

of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his


After sharing what little food they had the couple

let the angels sleep in their bed where they could

have a good night's rest.

When the sun came up the next morning the angels

found the farmer and his wife in tears.

Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole

income, lay dead in the field.

The younger angel was infuriated and asked the

older angel how could you have let this happen?

The first man had everything, yet you helped him,

she accused.

The second family had little but was willing to

share everything, and you let the cow die.

"Things aren't always what they seem," the older

angel replied.

"When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I

noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the

wall so he wouldn't find it."

the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him

the cow instead.

Things aren't always what they seem."

Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow a mystery.

Today is a gift.

That's why it's called the present!

I think this is special...live and savor every

moment... This is not a dress rehearsal!

Ray; I have seen this so many times, each time brings the same reaction, a tight throat and teary eys.

Also, like to hair cut. I relate very well. I had my last chemo yesterday. So far so good, but the fatigue usually hits me on the 3rd or 4th day. Now I wait 3 weeks and get a follow-up CT Scan. I don't know about you, but I began to hate chemo.
