Wisdom From A Butterfly

As Howard watched from the comfort of his backyard, the golden Monarch butterfly flitted through the warm summer air, landing on the scented white flowered jasmine.

"Oh, I wish I could be carefree like you," Howard said aloud. "But my cancer is growing worse and my body is withering away. Soon I'll no longer be here to keep you company."

Compassion From The Mayor Of Palos Verdes

Palos Verdes is a Los Angeles superb with beautiful homes and lush landscaping located along the ocean.

But one home had become rundown, a real eyesore with paint pealing and a yard filled with dis colored newspapers and overgrown in weeds. The neighbors vigorously complained to the city demanding that action be taken against this homeowner.

As a result the Mayor of Palos Verdes went to the home of this resident and knocked on the door.

"Yes," said an elderly woman as she opened the door.

"I'm the Mayor," he replied with a smile. "And I wanted to meet you."

"I'm hardly worth meeting," she answered. "My name is Julia, please come in."
