Rules For Life...

To this day, I never found out why I all the sudden started receiving a newsletter for a church that I have only ever attended 1 maybe 2 times tops but I have been getting them for a few years now. I guess maybe I assumed it was due to my grandma who attends there when she comes home for the summer after this church married my sister and brother-in-law on such short notice but either way...I am getting them. The funny thing is that I always read them. lol. I do have friends that attend this church and they have a lot of different functions so when I got it today I picked it up and This is what I found inside....

Rules For Life

One. Give People more than they expect and do it Cheerfully.
Two. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
Three. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
Four. When you say, "I Love You," mean it.
Five. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eyes.
Six. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
Seven. Believe in Love at first site.
Eight. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
Nine. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but its the only way to live life completely.
Ten. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
Eleven. Don't Judge people by their relatives.
Twelve. Talk slowly but think quickly.
Thirteen. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?'
Fourteen. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
Fifteen. Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze.
Sixteen. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
Seventeen. Remember the 3 R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.
Eighteen. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
Nineteen. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
Twenty. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
Twenty-one. Spend some time alone.

I thought they were pretty great so I just wanted to share them with everyone. Otherwise work has me pretty beat tonight as well as carrying bookshelves into Katie's new apartment. I think its time to lay down and work on Sara's Surprise a little more. Here is hint # 2......Can you guess what it is?
If not that I guess you will have to wait for more of the pieces. lol. I know I am excited about putting this together as well as a few other surprises for Sara and the soon to be little girl.
