The Good Doctor Says...


“Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.”


Can you relate?

Would you write a post on how this can apply to you?

If you do write a related post, come back and link it up!

I'll have to come back later and be serious. The stupid cat picture is making me laugh again. I have been laughing every single time I come because of that cat....

katdish said...

I think we should all write a post in Dr. Seuss format or pig latin. That would be awesome.

Sorry Sherri, Beth started it.

sherri said...

I'm gonna' have to separate the two of you...!

Definitely experienced this. My high school football team played together since fourth grade. We were bonded together like no other team. We lost in the playoffs in a close game. Everyone cried. Coaches, parents, players, former players, siblings. After hugs and speeches all around the entire team prayed at the center of the field.

This was just a regular public school. No religion in the school at all. Not private, no religious classes or anything. There were maybe ten to 15 of us players that prayed before every game. But after that game everybody there knelt down and prayed at the 50 yard line. We gave thanks to God for everything he had given us over the years, the friendships we've made, and the future to come for all of us. There were Christians, athiests, mormons, jews, everything. But all of us prayed. Looking back and seeing it on tape makes me emotional every time. I'm tearing up right now just thinking about it.

The fact that just a few of us Christian guys could pull that off with over a hundred people was beyond amazing and I think it really rocked people. I consider it my greatest accomplishment to this day.

Either Ryan is incredibly mature for his age, or I am incredibly immature for mine...

Nah! I like the first option better. Very cool, Ryan!

Beth said...

No, the cat in the corner. The AWESOME one. Frank thinks I'm a little off because I laugh at that cat hysterically no matter how many times I see it. And I'm diggin' the smarty pants. Although I love Cat in the Hat, too. Just a different kind of love....

(Sorry again Sherri.) (And I feel the need to apologize to Ryan for the second time today as well.)

A-ay ost-pay i-nay ig-pay atin-lay ould-way e-bay (HA!) un-fay.

sherri said...

Beth, no it wouldn't- it's VERY annoying!

Katdish- the second option is more likely.

Ryan- WHat a great story! You SHOULD be proud.
I know those bonds are tight (my son just finished playing last year- I can relate). What a great memory for you.

Now I'm feelin' like your mother because that reminds me of my son.

Are your hungry? You look a little thin.

I found the smarty pants on a clearance rack! Thought we could sell em and make us some money on this site! We could offer those crystal prayer necklaces too that katdish was moaning about awhile back.
Whatta' ya' think?

katdish said...

Sherri - I know you are but what am I?

Beth - I believe that would be "A-hay".

And yeah, that cat is AWESOME!

Beth said...

Oh no...the necklace. I spotted one this past weekend. Can't tell you who has it, but Kathy offered to drive her to Joel Osteen's church once...

Helen said...

Okay, Beth, that made no sense to me.
I love the idea of writing posts in Dr. Seuss's style.
Ryan is incrediblly mature. I won't say for his age, because I started rethinking the whole age stereotype.
Sherri, I think I eventually experience that over the death of a loved one. I start out crying for my losss, but then I laugh over the good times we had. I cried many times after dad died, but now I laugh at some really wonderful memories.

I think there must be something wrong with your posting mechanism. I counted three typos in Helen's comment. I think it must have been written by one of the other blog participants (cough, Sherri), and Helen's name was attached to it by mistake.

Candace Jean July 16 said...

and when this post go so terribly wrong? Haven't seen a cat fight like this since my kids left home. **and she smiles because it happened - the leaving, that is***

The cat in the corner scares me. I always scroll down very quickly. It's the "win a pendant with $1000 donation to this site" that cracks me up.

Write/right/rite on, Ryan.

sherri said...

Look here CLyde- I'm rather sensitive about my typos- it's become sort of a disability now, I don't think mocking it is very CHristianlike.

I forgive you.

sherri said...

ANd thank you Candace- I thought the miracle pendant offer would be a great addition to our site-I'm glad you approve!

Annie K said...

I'm just gonna lurk today. I feel like crap and can't even think of anything funny to say (NO it's not Red Wine induced but virus crud induced. Thank. you. very. much.) (Just in case someone was going to make a smart A comment...who could that be?) Love all you gals, and guy - and now, I gotta go drag myself into work when I'd just like to take a sissy day.... (please, no sympathy, just prayers.)

I posted using Dr. Seuss's quote on my own site, but I don't know how to link.
Just click on my name and read about THE EMPTY CORNER.
