How to stay married!

A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.

For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside. She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box.

When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000.

He asked her about the contents. "When we were to be married," she said, "my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll."

The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness.

"Honey," he said, "that explains the doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?"
"Oh," she said, "that's the money I made from selling the dolls."

من اعتمد على غير الله

جلس رجلان قد ذهب بصرهما على طريق أم جعفر زبيدة العباسية لمعرفتهما بكرمها.
فكان أحدهما يقول: اللهم ارزقني من فضلك..
وكان الآخر يقول: اللهم ارزقني من فضل أم جعفر.
وكانت أم جعفر تعلم ذلك منهما وتسمع، فكانت ترسل لمن طلب فضل الله درهمين، ولمن طلب فضلها دجاجة مشوية في جوفها عشرة دنانير. وكان صاحب الدجاجة يبيع دجاجته لصاحب الدرهمين، بدرهمين كل يوم، وهو لا يعلم ما في جوفها من دنانير.

وأقام على ذلك عشرة أيام متوالية، ثم أقبلت أم جعفر عليهما،
وقالت لطالب فضلها: أما أغناك فضلنا ؟
قال: وما هو؟
قالت مائة دينار في عشرة أيام،
قال: لا، بل دجاجة كنت أبيعها لصاحبي بدرهمين.
فقالت: هذا طلب من فضلنا فحرمه الله، وذاك طلب من فضل الله فأعطاه الله وأغناه.

يقول الشيخ عبد الحميد كشك يرحمه الله:
من اعتمد على غير الله ذل، ومن اعتمد على غير الله قل. ومن اعتمد على غير الله ضل. ومن اعتمد على غير الله مل. ومن اعتمد على الله فلا ذلّ ولا قلّ ولا ضلّ ولا ملّ.

إذا كنت لا تقرأ إلا ما يُعجبك فقط، فإنك إذاً لن تتعلم أبداً!

The next CEO

A successful business man was growing old And knew it was time to Choose a successor to take over the business.

Instead of choosing one of his directors Or his children, He decided to do something different.
He called all the young executives in his Company together. He said, 'It is time for me to step down And choose the next CEO.

I have decided to choose one of you. 'The young executives were shocked, But the boss continued.' I am going to give each one of you a SEED today - One very special SEED.
I want you to plant the seed, water it, And come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you.

I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO'.

One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed.He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed.

Everyday, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.
Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew. Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing. By now, others were talking about their plants, But Jim didn't have a plant and he felt like a failure.

Six months went by--still nothing in Jim's pot. He just knew he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Jim didn't say anything to his colleagues, however. he just kept watering and fertilizing the soil - he so wanted the seed to grow.

A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants to the CEO for inspection. Jim told his wife that he wasn't going to take an empty pot. But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt sick at his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of life, but he knew his wife was right.

He took his empty pot to the board room. When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives.

They were beautiful--in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!

When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives.

Jim just tried to hide in the back. What great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown,' said the CEO. 'Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!'

All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered the financial director to bring him to the front. Jim was terrified. He thought, 'The CEO knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!'

When Jim got to the front, The CEO asked him what had happened to his seed Jim told him the story. The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, 'Behold your next Chief Executive! His name is Jim!'

Jim couldn't believe it. Jim couldn't even grow his seed. How could he be the new CEO the others said?

Then the CEO said, 'One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds; They were dead - It was not possible for them to grow. All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers.

When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was the only one with the courage and Honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it.

Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive!'

  • If you plant honesty, you will reap trust
  • If you plant goodness, you will reap friends
  • If you plant humility, you will reap greatness
  • If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment
  • If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective
  • If you plant hard work, you will reap success
  • If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation

So, be careful what you plant now; it will determine what you will reap later.

Arabic Joke

قرر المحتال وزوجته ان يدخلا مدينة ليمارسا أعمال النصب

و الاحتيال على أهل المدينة

في اليوم الأول : اشترى المحتال حمـــارا وملأ فمه بليرات من الذهب

رغما عنه، وأخذه إلى حيث تزدحم الأقدام في السوق .

لمح الحمـــار مراهقة في السوق فنهق .

فتساقطت النقود من فمه .... فتجمع الناس حول المحتال

الذي اخبرهم ان الحمــار كلما نهق تتساقط النقود من فمه .

بدون تفكيرا بدأت المفاوضات حول بيع الحمــار

اشتراه كبير التجار بمبلغ كبير .

لكنه اكتشف بعد ساعات بأنه وقع ضحية عملية نصب غبية .

فانطلق فورا إلى بيت المحتال وطرقوا الباب .

قالت زوجته انه غير موجود

لكنها سترســـل الكلب وسوف يحضره فــــــورا .

فعلا أطلقت الكلب الذي كان محبوسا

فهـــرب لا يلوي على شيء،

لكن زوجها عاد بعد قليل وبرفقته كلب يشبه تماما الكلب الذي هرب .

طبعا، نسوا لماذا جاؤوا وفاوضوه على شراء الكلب ،

واشتراه احدهم بمبلغ كبير طبعا . ،

ثم ذهب إلى البيت وأوصى زوجته ان تطلقه ليحضره بعد ذلك .

فأطلقت الزوجة الكلب لكنهم لم يروه بعد ذلك .

عرف التجار أنهم تعرضوا للنصب مرة أخرى .

فانطلقوا إلى بيت المحتال ودخلوا عنوة .....

فلــم يجــدوا سوى زوجته ، فجلسوا ينتظرونه .

ولما جاء نظر إليهم ثم إلى زوجته ، وقــــال لها :

لمـــاذا لم تقو مي بواجبـــات الضيافة لهـــؤلاء الأكـــارم؟؟

فقالت الزوجة : إنهم ضيوفك فقم بواجبهم أنت .

فتظاهر الرجل بالغضب الشديد وأخــرج من جيبه سكينا مزيفا

من ذلك النوع الذي يدخل فيه النصل بالمقبض

وطعنها في الصدر حيث كان هناك بالونا مليئا بالصبغة الحمراء،

فتظاهرت بالموت .

صار الرجال يلومونه على هذا التهور فقال لهم :

لا تقلقوا ... فقد قتلتها أكثر من مرة وأستطيع أعادتها للحياة .

وفورا اخرج مزمارا من جيبه وبدأ يعزف،

فقامت الزوجة على الفور أكثر حيوية ونشاطا،

وانطلقت لتصنع القهوة للرجال المدهوشين .

نسى الرجال لماذا جاءوا ،

وصاروا يفاوضونه على المزمار حتى اشتروه بمبلغ كبير،

وعاد الذي فاز به وطعن زوجته وصار يعزف فوقها ساعات فلم تصحو،

وفي الصباح سأله التجار عما حصل معه فخاف ان يقول لهم انه قتل زوجته

فادعى ان المزمار يعمل وانه تمكن من إعادة إحياء زوجته،

فاستعاره التجار منه .... وقتل كل منهم زوجته بالتالي .

طفح الكيل مع التجار ، فذهبوا إلى بيته

ووضعوه في كيس وأخذوه ليلقوه بالبحر .

ساروا حتى تعبوا فجلسوا للـــراحة فنــاموا .

صار المحتال يصرخ من داخل الكيس ، فجاءه راعي غنم

وسأله عن سبب وجوده داخل كيس و هؤلاء نيام

فقال له بأنهم يريدون تزويجه من بنت كبير التجار في الإمارة

لكنه يعشق ابنة عمه ولا يريد بنت الرجل الثري .

طبعا ... أقتنع صاحبنا الراعي بالحلول مكانه في الكيس

طمعا بالزواج من ابنه تاجر التجار، فدخل مكانه بينما

اخذ المحتال أغنامه وعاد للمدينة .

ولما نهض التجار ذهبوا والقوا الكيس بالبحر وعادوا للمدينة مرتاحين .

لكنهم وجدوا المحتال أمامهم ومعه ثلاث مئة رأس من الغنم . فسألوه
فأخبرهم بأنهم لما القوه بالبحر خرجت حورية وتلقته وأعطته ذهبا وغنما

وأوصلته للشاطيء ......

وأخبرته بأنهم لو رموه بمكان ابعد عن الشاطيء

لأنقذته اختها الأكثر ثراء التي كانت ستنقذه وتعطيه آلاف الرؤوس من الغنم ..

وهي تفعل ذلك مع الجميع ...

كان المحتال يحدثهم وأهل المدينة يستمعون

فانطلق الجميع إلى البحر والقوا بأنفسهم فيه(عليهم العوض ) .....

صارت المدينة بأكملها ملكا للمحتال ....

Tips to Stay Young n Happy Always

1. Throw out nonessential numbers.
This includes age, weight, and height.
Let the doctors worry about them.. That is why you pay them.

2. Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down.
(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning:
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever.
Never let the brain get idle.
'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him or her!

6. The tears happen:
Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourself.
LIVE while you are alive.

7 Surround yourself with what you love:
Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it.
If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips.
Take a trip to the mall, even to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

And if you don't send this to people - who cares?
But do share this with someone.

I want more

The sadness is covering her baby face from the darkness of life, she feels the life wasn't fair with her, she wanted money & fame but that would have destroyed her pure soul.

Her intention were innocent but God has protected her from her self, money & power can destroy her in a moment that she may forget him. He is testing her & she thanks him for that.

Her innar battles are getting stronger when the memories posses her mind & heart while she's alone but she recollect her self & thanks God for his fairness.

Is it a cultural shock or what?

She just joined her new job, after getting a better proposal, people started to treat her nice but she was giving unwelcomed signs of not accepting the new changes & been negative. Some said it's just a cultural shock & everyone accepted it but while the time goes by, her nature started to curve, she's not social & loves to irritate people.

I find her a control freak who wants attention for her self. I came cross someone the same like her in a conference I backed out when I realized that she wants to use me. Such people act dummy like blond haired women but they aren't at all.

Round the corner

It seems months & years since I last wrote a post in my journal, despite been few weeks. The major question that everyone is thinking of is 'where were you?' and my answer is "I was just around the corner."

I was busy with my cousin's wedding arrangements. Had another cousin's wedding reception to attend & both weddings I looked outstanding, from the outfit to the hair style & make up. My cousins were around so we had our best times, they may be younger then me but they respect me the way I do with them.

The Noodle House is the latest dining place in Oman has openned at the month of January 2008, some loved it & others hated it; on my side I'll give it 3 to 4 stars out of 5 because of the desert 'Banana Toeffe' wasn't that sweet as China Town.
