>Something that bothers me

>Have you received this e-mail? Maybe you’ve received one like it.

TOO Busy for a Friend?

One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room On two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name.

Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of Their classmates and write it down.

It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as The students left the room, each one handed in the papers.

That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate Sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual..

There is more to the e-mail, but if you have received it you know the rest, the end of the e-mail has a plea to forward the e-mail on, with a tug . . .

You’ve received this, it is because someone cares for you and it means there Is probably at least someone for whom you care.

You’re ‘too busy’ to take those few minutes right now to forward this Message on, would this be the VERY first time you didn’t do that little Thing that would make a difference in your relationships?

The More people that you send this to, the better you’ll be at reaching out to Those you care about.

Remember, you reap what you sow.. What you put into the lives of others comes back into your own.

May Your Day Be Blessed As Special As You are

Emotional blackmail is what I call it, but that is not what bothers me, (I mean my mother has been doing that to me for years) what bothers me is I don’t always pass them on. Especially if I have received it before, if it has statements in it that I don’t agree with, so on and so forth. Sometimes I will just return it to the person that sent it to me. I don’t think that makes me a bad person to not do this, the fact is, it isn’t just a few minutes or a minor inconvenience, I don’t just have friends in my e-mail address book, I get newsletters and offers for books to read for review, I have to go through my address book and pick out who I want to send this to, who I think won’t be bothered by getting something like this.

I know posting this will not stop these e-mails from coming, I just wanted to voice my opinion about it.
