I am almost finished with a week filled with activities. I am ready for a weekend of rest and relaxation. Usually weekends are also filled with things to do or places to go, thank goodness not this weekend. I will continue to brush off my fall wardrobe as we move into October. These days I try to make sure my time is well spent. Besides our daily get together via Ray’s Daily. I also benefit by time spent with old and new friends and in the offered by our senior residence. daily activities .

Here is a piece written by an unknown author that I got from a good friend that we all need to understand.

 The Magic Bank Account

Imagine that you had won the Following *PRIZE* in a contest:

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 In your private account for your use. However, this prize has Rules:

The set of Rules:

  1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.
  2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
  3. You may only spend It.
  4. Each morning upon awakening, The bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that Day.
  5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time, it can say, Game Over!” It can close the account And you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally Do?

You would buy anything and Everything you wanted right?  Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for.  Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?

ACTUALLY, This GAME is REAL…   Shocked ???    YES!

Each of us is already a winner Of this *PRIZE*. We just can’t seem to see it. The PRIZE is *TIME*

  1. Each morning we awaken to Receive 86,400 seconds As a gift of Life.
  2. And when we go to sleep at Night, any remaining time is Not credited to us.
  3. What we haven’t used up that Day is forever lost.
  4. Yesterday is forever Gone.
  5. Each morning the account is Refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING…

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much More than the same amount in dollars. 

Think about it and remember to Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than You think. So take care of yourself, be Happy, love deeply and enjoy life!

Here’s wishing you a wonderful And beautiful day. Start spending….

How we spend our days, is, of course, how we spend our lives.

There was this blonde city-girl who was out driving and found herself in a rural area. She noted a farm animal standing next to a farmer and stopped the car to ask the farmer a question.

“Sir,” she inquired, “Why doesn’t this cow have any horns?”

The farmer cocked his head for a moment, then began in a patient tone. “Well, ma’am, cattle can do a powerful lot of damage with horns. Sometimes we keep’em trimmed down with a hacksaw. Other times we can fix up the young ‘uns by puttin’ a couple drops of acid where their horns would grow in, and that stops ’em cold. Still, there are some breeds of cattle that never grow horns. But the reason this cow don’t have no horns, ma’am, is ’cause it’s a horse.”

Cecil and Morris are walking to services and Cecil asks, “I wonder whether it would be all right to smoke while praying?”

“Why don’t you ask the rabbi?” says Morris.

Cecil sees Rabbi Golden and asks, “Rabbi, is it permissible for me to smoke while I pray?”

“No, you may not. That’s utter disrespect to our religion and traditions!” quickly answers the rabbi.

Cecil goes back to his friend and tells him what the good Rabbi told him.

“I’m not surprised. You asked the wrong question. Let me try.”

Morris goes over to the rabbi and asks, “Rabbi, will it be ok if I pray while I smoke?”

To which Rabbi Golden eagerly replies, “By all means, my good man. By all means.”

Gerry walks into Saul’s tailors and asks how much are his made to measure suits.

‘$200 dollars’ answers Saul.

‘OK’ says Gerry ‘but I don’t need the buttons so get rid of them, and you can leave out the pockets too, oh and while you are at it I don’t want any lining either. Forget about the pockets in the pants too and leave out the zipper I can use a pin. No need for any belt loops or suspender buttons and you might as well leave out the hook and eye. Now how much will it be?’

Saul thought for a while then answered ‘$400 dollars’.

‘My Life! says Gerry, ‘that’s twice as much as before’.

‘I know’ says Saul ‘ But all those alterations
