The driver said, "Iíd had it with the cold weather, the passengers, and my family! One day after I got off work, I thought, ĎI WONDER WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF I JUST TOOK OFF FROM DRIVING!í"
So, thatís what he did! He took off for Florida where he enjoyed the sun and surf for over a week, ALL BY HIMSELF!
HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE THAT? Havenít we all felt like that bus driver at times? We get so frustrated and/or aggravated about life that we either want to pull our hair out or run away!
Maybe your marriage hasnít gone the way you thought it would. Itís never like you dreamed it would be. But perhaps yours has really been poor at best. Youíd tried so many different things to add some spark to your marriage, but nothing seemed to work. So you may have thought, "I wonder what would happen if I just took off for a few days and told no one where I was going?"
ILL.- Thatís like the husband who said, "Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight dinner, soft music and a slow walk home. SHE GOES TUESDAYS AND I GO FRIDAYS."
Or maybe itís your parenting that is getting you down. KIDS DO GET PARENTS DOWN!
ILL.- One mother said, "These children are nuts today. I have a child myself. He is 12 years old. He is going to be 13...IF I LET HIM!"
Maybe youíve tried everything you can think of to discipline your child and nothing seems to work.
ILL.- Itís like that old story about the mother who had two boys and one of them cussed a lot. They came to the breakfast table one morning and the mother said to her one boy, "Son, what you would like for breakfast?" He said, "I want some of those blankety-blank post toasties!" His mother just hauled off and backhanded him and knocked him in the floor.
She turned to her other boy and said, "And son, what would you like for breakfast?" He said, "I donít know, but I sure donít want any of those post toasties!"
Sometimes children can really get us parents down. And they donít have to be little to get us down, do they? There are times when you just want to throw up your hands, or else smack Ďem and whack Ďem! Some parents think, "I might as well just let Ďem run wild. Thereís nothing I can do to carouse them!"
Or maybe itís your job thatís getting you down.
ILL.- A father came home from work one day, very exhausted and frustrated. He wanted to get some rest, but little Johnny kept pestering him and asking him questions, "Daddy, daddy, what do you do all day at work?" "Nothing!" shouted his father. After a long pause, little Johnny asked, "Well, daddy, how do you know when youíre through?!"
HAVE YOU EVER COME HOME FRUSTRATED AND EXHAUSTED OVER THINGS THAT HAPPENED AT WORK? Of course, you have! Who hasnít? There no is such thing as a pain-free job! Every job or occupation has its drawbacks.
Brothers and sisters, life is full of pain and disappointment! We think things are going to be thus and so, and find out they are not what we expected at all! Bills pile up, health fails, marriages crumble, people hurt you
