    ~~~~ emoticon ~~~~FIVE MORE MINUTES~~~~ emoticon ~~~~
    While at the park one day,
    a woman sat down next to a man on a bench near a playground.
    "That's my son over there," she said, pointing to a little boy
    in a red sweater who was gliding down the slide.
    "He's a fine looking boy" the man said. "That's my son on the swing in the blue sweater."

    Then, looking at his watch, he called to his son. "What do you say we go, Todd?"
    Todd pleaded, "Just 'FIVE MORE MINUTES.' Dad. Please? Just 'FIVE MORE MINUTES.'
    The man nodded and Todd continued to swing to his heart's content.
    Minutes passed and the father stood and called again to his son.
    "Time to go now?" Again Todd pleaded, 'FIVE MORE MINUTES', Dad.
    Just FIVE MORE MINUTES.' The man smiled and said, "O.K."

    "My, you certainly are a patient father," the woman responded.
    The man smiled and then said, "My older son Tommy was killed
    by a drunk driver last year while he was riding his bike near here.
    I never spent much time with Tommy and now I'd give anything
    for just FIVE MORE MINUTES with him.
    I've vowed not to make the same mistake with Todd.
    He thinks he has FIVE MORE MINUTES to swing.
    The truth is, I get FIVE MORE MINUTES to watch him play."

    Life is all about making priorities, what are your priorities?
    Give someone you love 'FIVE MORE MINUTES of your time today.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Giving of An Apple emoticon emoticon emoticon

    A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
    Her Mom came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile:
    “Sweetie, could you give your Mom one of your two apples?”
    The girl looked up at her Mom for some seconds,
    then she suddenly took a quick bite of one apple, and then quickly of the other.
    The Mom felt the smile on her face freeze.
    She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
    Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her Mom, and said:
    "Mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one."
