Why Women Are So Special.

Mum and Dad were watching TV when

Mum said, "I'm tired, and it's
Getting late. I think I'll go to bed."
She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's
Lunches. Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the
Freezer for supper the following evening, checked the cereal box
Levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the
Table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning.
She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes
Into the washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button. She
Picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on
The charger and put the telephone book into the drawer.

She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom.
She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted
Out some cash for the excursion and pulled a text book out from
Hiding under the chair. She signed a birthday card for a friend,
Addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note for the
Grocery store. She put both near her bag.
Mum then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night
Solution & age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth.
Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed."
"I'm on my way," she said. She put some water into the dog's dish
And put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked and
The patio light was on.. She looked in on each of the kids and
Turned out their bedside lamps and radios, hung up a shirt, threw
Some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a brief conversation
With the one up still doing homework.
In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next
Day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her
6 most important things to do list. She said her prayers, and
Visualized the accomplishment of her goals.
About that time, Dad turned off the TV
And announced to no one in particular. "I'm going to bed." And he
Did...without another thought.
Anything extraordinary here? Wonder why women live longer...?
(and they can't die sooner, they still have things to do!!!!)
Send this to five phenomenal women today...they' ll love you for it!
And Forward this to as many men as you can so that they know why
Women are so special :) ..........!
God's very own creation! :)
Thanks to Mike

Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, His laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today.
Jefferson really
knew his stuff.
A voice from the past to lead us in the future:
John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the White House for a group of the brightest minds
in the nation at that time. He made this statement: "This is perhaps the assembly of
the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."
 "When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe "Thomas Jefferson
"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are
willing to work and give to those who would not."
Thomas Jefferson
"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world." 
Thomas Jefferson
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
Thomas Jefferson
"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results
from too much government."
Thomas Jefferson
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."
Thomas Jefferson
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a
last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
Thomas Jefferson
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."Thomas Jefferson
"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he
and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."
--Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
