In Case I'm Gone Tomorrow!

One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't "any more".

No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute."

Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, say "I love you."

So while we have it, it's best we love it, care for it, fix it when it's broken and heal it when it's sick.

This is true for marriage.....And old cars... And children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.

Some things we keep -- like a best friend who moved away or a sister-in-law after divorce. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.

Life is important, like people we know who are special.. And so, we keep them close!

Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them? Important thing is to let every one of your friends know you love them, even if you think they don't love you back.

And just in case I'm gone tomorrow, whatever you do, vote against Obama!

Please vote against Mr. Obama. We need Hope and Change. Hope that we have a working future and Change back to the American way of life. Governments message to its people should be the same one we got from our parents-study hard, work hard, be polite and respectful of others. Now you are "entilted" to what others have worked for and feel that they owe you. Envy has spread in the last 4 years like wildfire. Mr. Obama demonizes the successful to take our eyes off of his failures as a leader. Unfortunately it's a message that plays well in the cities. Mr. Obama blames the wealthy for the decline of the middle class-I blame his party for enabling the EPA, the DOE and other agencies to strangle business and job creation, thus causing the loss of good paying jobs elsewhere. Please let Mitt Romney at least try to save us-remember this-he has been sucessful in everything he has ever attempted. I'm afraid that fixing the mess left by the current sitting President may be impossible even in 8 years. I think I've said enough.

Toally agree with the above. We are at war, but this war is here in America. The country that we grew up in, the country our folks worked in and for is being threathen, not by marching soldiers but by the current president. He is destroying our country. He wants to make this election about class-warfare when in fact it is really about taking from the working people, and giving to those who don't want anything for themselves except a handout not a handup.
We need to understand no matter what your race, legal, or illegal, if we don't vote out Obama no one will have a FREE country to call home anymore. Please start listening and looking at the facts. Go to the library, bookstores, etc. and understand Obama's motivation is to get the welfare,and younger generation in his grip inorder to get their votes. He dangles " I'll give you everything you ever wanted" in their faces when in fact he will lead everyone down the road to destruction. Take pride in yourselves, your abilities and listen to people who have lived through tyranny and know what it does.

I will most certainly vote against Obama. Four years ago I was running a long time thriving business, owned two homes, had a retirement plan for the future in place, had a sizable yearly charitable donation budget and was content. Now my business sees few customers, I'm selling one of my homes, have taken from my retirement plan, cannot afford to donate to charities and am not happy about any of it. Obama and O'Malley should film a remake of "Twins". I'm not sure which one is worse - I guess it has to be Obama - O'Malley is only screwing up one state - Obama is getting them all. I came from nothing and made something of myself with hard work and determination and so I will have to do it all again after these two "Brothers" leave office.
