Why not, some of these funnies have been going around for years, when I got a package of them this morning, I thought why not share. The talented cartoonists and illustrators captured in one “picture” what might take pages to say otherwise..
When I was younger (much younger and starting to work full-time) I remember having similar thoughts, about being old enough to make my own decisions, and someone, usually my Mother, trying to reason with me on various matters. It is only when I got much older did I realize how right she had been. I didn’t think so at the time though. When we are young we think that the experiences we have and the challenges we face are soooooooo unique.. in reality, we all fall in love, we are all at some time left feeling lost and lonely, and we all have a tendency to forget that each and every other person in our lives has known the same pangs of emotions we have.
This next one… the moment I saw it, several people came to mind that I love dearly, but immediately their faces sprang up when I “reacted” to this illustration .. No two people are alike, and it is not always about a person’s mannerisms, looks or method of conversation that keep us friends, it is their loyalty, sincere friendship, & the willingness to accept us as we are.
A relationship worth having is one that experiences the highs and lows of life in a way that respects the differences and accepts the adventure of life in a way that is compatible with yours.
Make this a happy day..
Love you !!
