The TV Guide To Life
Sometimes life is like a big TV show.
We were all raised in a HOUSE.
It could have used some HOME IMPROVEMENT, but it was home. It was just a LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE,
but we realize now that we are lucky it wasn't somewhere in
SOUTH PARK, DALLAS, or even in LOS VEGAS.
We were lucky we had a dad that wasn't a giant
KING OF THE HILL,
but a regular FAMILY GUY,
and blessed with a mom who believed in FAMILY TIES
and wasn't FRIENDS with any DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES.
She was just a great mom- MARRIED, WITH CHILDREN.
But she taught us to remember our ROOTS.
And when we did have problems, we kept it ALL IN THE FAMILY.
I say CHEERS to that.
No use airing dirty laundry.
We sure had some GOOD TIMES.
But then we all grew up and sprouted WINGS.
We didn't just GET SMART overnight, though.
We went through some GROWING PAINS.
We were THIRTY-SOMETHING before we realized
that our WONDER YEARS were over
and to be a SURVIVOR,
we would have to face the FACTS OF LIFE.
We learned that some people
are out to MASH your dreams.
That KEEPING UP APPEARANCES
is really not all that important.
We have also learned the following:
Listen to your COACH.
Be nice to PERFECT STRANGERS.
Keep a CLEAN HOUSE.
Let them know WHO'S THE BOSS.
Never lose track of your BOSOM BUDDIES.
LAUGH OUT LOUD.
Learn to say, YES, DEAR.
Save your money, but WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE
if it can't bring you happiness?
Don't just buy something because THE PRICE IS RIGHT.
Never put your life in JEOPARDY.
Don't be afraid of an EMPTY NEST. It may be a blessing.
Have HOPE AND FAITH.
Let yourself be TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL.
that no matter who we are
or where we live
or what we do
IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE!
