Yes, Yes I Will

This is the story of two elderly people living in a mobile home park. He was a widower and she a widow. They had known each other for a number of years.

One evening there was a community supper at the club house and the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles. They had a wonderful evening and spirits were high.

The widower sent a few admiring glances across the table and the widow smiled coyly back at him. Finally he plucked up his courage to ask her, 'Will you marry me?'

After about six seconds of careful consideration, she answered, 'Yes, yes I will.'

The meal ended with a few more pleasant exchanges and they went to their respective homes. The next morning the widower was troubled. Did she say Yes or did she say No? He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall.

He went over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind was blank. He remembered asking the question but for the life of him could not recall her response. With fear and trepidation he picked up the phone and called her. First he explained that he didn't remember as well as he use to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past. As he gained a little more courage he then inquired of her.

'When I asked if you would marry me, did you say Yes or did you say No?'

'Why you silly man, I said - 'Yes, yes I will' and I meant it with all my heart.'

The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.

Then she continued - 'and I am so glad you called because I couldn't remember who asked me.'

Treasures In You

There are treasures in life, but owners are few.
Of money and power to buy things brand new.

Yet you can be wealthy and feel regal too.
If you will just look for the treasures in you.

These treasures in life are not hard to find.
When you look in your heart, your soul, and your mind.

For when you are willing to share what's within.
Your fervent search for riches will end.

The joy and the laughter, the smile that you bring.
The heart unafraid to love and to sing.

The hand always willing to help those in need.
Ones quick to reach out, to labour and feed.

So thank you for sharing these great gifts inside.
The caring, the cheering, the hug when one cried.

Thanks for the energy, encouragement too.
And thank you for sharing the treasures in you.
