Three Feet From Gold

Three Feet From Gold

 One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat. Every person is guilty of this mistake at one time aaaor another. An uncle of R. U. Darby was caught by the “gold fever” in the gold-rush days, and went west to DIG AND GROW RICH. He had never heard that more gold has been mined from the brains of men than has ever been taken from the earth. He staked a claim and went to work with pick and shovel. The going was hard, but his lust for gold was definite.

After weeks of labor, he was rewarded by the discovery of the shining ore. He needed machinery to bring the ore to the surface. Quietly, he covered up the mine, retraced his footsteps to his home in Williamsburg, Maryland, told his relatives and a few neighbors of the “strike.” They got together money for the needed machinery, had it shipped. The uncle and Darby went back to work the mine.

The first car of ore was mined, and shipped to a smelter. The returns proved they had one of the richest mines in Colorado! A few more cars of that ore would clear the debts. Then would come the big killing in profits.

Please, Just Listen!

Please, Just Listen!

It’s a service to self and others

By Joan C. Curtis

YOU MAY THINK THAT YOU ARE a great listener, and yet be guilty of “listening” but not hearing? You may even fake listening and reply with a response or solution designed to shut the person up.

When a person presents a problem, you tend to offer a solution, but solution-driven responses are not listening. You can’t solve a problem if you have not heard it. Besides, what makes you think you have the perfect solution?

Too many people put off something that brings them joy just because they haven’t thought about it, don’t have it on their schedule, didn’t know it was

coming or are too rigid to depart from their routine.

I got to thinking one day about all those women on the Titanic who passed up dessert at dinner that fateful night in an effort to cut back. From then on, I’ve tried to be a little more flexible.

How many women out there will eat at home because their husband didn’t suggest going out to dinner until after something had been thawed? Does

the word “refrigeration” mean nothing to you?

How often have your kids dropped in to talk and sat in silence while you watched ‘Jeopardy’ on television?

A man rescues girl from alleged kidnapping

Man Rescues New Mexico Girl from Suspected Kidnappingunnamed.jpg

August 15, 2011–When New Mexico resident Antonio Diaz Chacon saw a little girl being snatched from the street and placed into a blue van, he had no doubt about what he needed to do. He jumped into his own car and followed.

The 6-year-old victim had been going to a neighbor’s house for a package of tostadas when she was grabbed from the street. Diaz had seen the man cover the girl’s mouth and place her into the van. A neighbor screamed in Spanish, “Let her go, she’s not yours!”

Inspiring Story

 

A True Story — Author unknown

There is a kind soul working in the dead letter office of the U.S. Postal Service somewhere…

Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God, so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could, so she dictated these words:…………………………………………….

Dear God,

Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick. I hope you will play with her. She likes to play with balls and to swim. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.

Loving Family

I ran into a stranger as he passed by,
“Oh, excuse me please,” was my reply.
He said, “Please excuse me too;
I just wasn’t watching for you.”We were very polite, this stranger and I.

 

We went on our way, and we said good-bye.
But at home, a different story is told,
How we treat our loved ones, young and old.Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
My son stood beside me, very still.
When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
“Move out of the way,” I said with a frown.He walked away, his little heart broken.

How to Deal with Anger and Better Control Your Emotions


We all lose our temper from time to time. It’s a natural part of our emotions. And expressing anger is actually a healthy thing to do in our relationships with others. Expressing our differences in opinion allows us to have healthy conflict and many times come to an agreement or understanding that works for everyone.

That being said, too much anger is counterproductive. Expressing anger inappropriately can be harmful to relationships, both personal and at work. Inappropriate in this context can be too much anger, too often, or a times that are only going to make things worse, not better. In this article we will look at how to deal with anger and better control your emotions.

Let’s take a deeper look at how to deal with anger.

Expressing Anger: Unhealthy vs Healthy Ways

Anger is a natural and normal part of almost any relationship. This includes relationships with your spouse or significant other, kids, bosses, friends, family, etc. Anger provides us with valuable information, we just have to be willing to listen to it. It clues us in to areas where we disagree with others and things that need to be changed or altered.

Common Unhealthy Ways to Express Anger

Here’re some common yet unhealthy ways to express anger that you should avoid:

Being Passive-Aggressive

This is a term many of us are familiar with. Passive-aggressive behavior happens when someone is angry but uses indirect communication to express their anger.

Some of the more common passive-aggressive behaviors include the silent treatment, making comments about someone behind their back, being grumpy, moody, or pouting, or simply not doing tasks or assignments that they should.

This is a passive-aggressive person’s way of showing their anger. Not very productive but extremely common.

Poorly Timed

This is something I’ve been guilty of. I tend to be pretty open and out there with my emotions. As such, I’ve been known to express my anger in a situation where it can’t really do any good.

An example would be getting angry at one person in front of a crowd of people. All that does is make people uncomfortable and shuts them down. It’s not a healthy way to express anger or disagreement with someone.

Ongoing Anger

Being angry all the time is most often a symptom of something else. It’s healthy and normal to express anger when you disagree with someone. However, if someone is angry most of the time and always seems to be expressing their anger to everyone around them, this won’t serve them well.

As a matter of fact, over time, people will start to avoid this person and have as little contact as possible. The reason being is no one likes being around someone who is angry all the time and it’s a no-win situation.

Expressing Anger in a Healthy Manner

What about the healthy ways to adapt? Some healthy ways to express anger in our relationships include:

Being Honest

Expressing your anger or disagreement in an honest fashion. By this, I mean be truthful about what it is that is making you angry. Sometimes this will entail walking away and thinking about it for a bit before you respond. But that’s okay because you want to be honest.

Don’t say you’re mad at something someone did or said when it’s really something else that upset you.

Being Direct

Similar to being honest, being direct is a healthy way to express anger.

Don’t talk around something that is making you angry. Don’t say that one thing is making you angry when it’s really something else. And don’t stack items on top of each other so you can unload on someone about 10 different things 6 months from now.

Be direct and upfront about what is making you angry. Ensure you are expressing your anger to the person who upset you or you are angry at, not to someone else. This is very counterproductive.

Being Timely

When something makes you angry, it’s much better to express it in a timely manner. Don’t keep it bottled up inside of you, that’s only going to do more harm than good.

Think of the marriages that seem to go up in flames out of nowhere when the reality is someone kept quiet for years until they hit their breaking point.

Expressing anger as it occurs is a much healthier way of using anger to help us guide our relationships in the moment.

Teens save school bus from crashing when driver falls unconscious

Jessica Ireland, a sophomore at Williamsville North High Schoo, helped save a school bus from crashing. (Screenshot: WKBW)

Nine high school students prevented a potentially serious accident when their bus driver passed out at the wheel.

While riding the bus home on Tuesday with eight other students from Williamsville North High School in Williamsville, N.Y., sophomore Jessica Ireland felt the vehicle slow down. She walked to the front and saw that the driver, who is in his 70s, was unconscious.

“I ripped out my earbuds, I stood up and I screamed, ‘The bus driver passed out!’ and I pulled the parking brake,” Ireland told WKBW. The teen remembered both moves from school-bus-safety and CPR classes because she was focused that day. 

Ireland checked his pulse and shook the driver to wake him, with Isabella Custodi, a sophomore and Madelyn Greco, a freshman helping, according to WIVB. Freshman Tom Schwartz called 911. A student told WKBW that the bus, on Cottonwood Drive in Getzville, was dangerously close to a tree and other cars.

Responding firefighters from the Getzville Fire Company extolled the kids for acting fast, and the driver is reportedly doing OK. “It’s amazing to see their team effort,” Principal Andre Thomas told WKBW. “…I’m very proud of them all.”

On Friday, the school held a pizza party for the kid heroes. “Honestly, all of you guys stayed so calm,” Ireland said, according to WIVB. “It was a lot more helpful that you guys weren’t screaming and panicking and crying. It was an adventure.”

The school, the fire station and bus company Student Transportation of America were unavailable for comment.Read more from Yahoo Life
