Calling in Sick - I LOVE THIS!!

From: G T Subject: Calling in Sick - I LOVE THIS!! This is too funny, I just had to pass it on. ... Calling in sick... A woman calls her boss one morning and tells him that she is staying home because she is not feeling well. "What's the matter?" he asks. "I have a case of anal glaucoma," she says in a weak voice. "What the hell is anal glaucoma?" "I can't see my ass coming into work today."

The Value of Grief

From: Jenna The Value of Grief I remove the barriers to my sadness. And as I allow this grief to flood my being, it wraps around me and holds me tenderly. Though I've tried to avoid this sadness through distractions or anger, I now find this gentle sorrow to be a surprising relief. I express my grief. And as I do, tears wash the poisons from my heart. They soften and calm me like a day of misting rain cools and renews the earth. This sorrow heals, for this is the value of grief: When I allow my sadness to be real, I go through it into the radiance of my future. Slowly, silently, I heal.
