As Clean as Cold Water Can Get Them

coldwaterHahaha. Got this in my email. Too funny not to pass on…

Larry went to visit his 86 year old grandfather in a very rural area. After spending a great evening chatting the night away, Larry’s grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon and eggs. Larry noticed a film like substance on his place, and questioned his grandfather asking, “Are these plates clean?”

His grandfather replied, “They’re as clean as cold water can get em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal”.

For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, Larry was concerned about the plates as it appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, “Are you sure these plates are clean?”

Without looking up the old man said, “I told you before, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don’t you worry, I don’t want to hear another word about it”.

Later that afternoon, as he was leaving, his grandfather’s dog started to growl, and wouldn’t let him pass. Larry yelled and said, “Grandfather, your dog won’t let me get to my car”.

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted, ‘COLDWATER, GO LAY DOWN NOW, YEH HERE ME!!!”

I received hundreds of emails following the 'I'm Christian, unless you're gay' post. Today I wanted to share a handful of the most powerful. These responses turned my world upside-down.

When everything at the top of that mountain went horribly wrong, I started slipping in and out of consciousness, unaware of how dangerous the situation really was.

Whether they were true lessons to learn or not, these are 10 of the most powerful and unfortunate lessons I learned as the fat kid growing up. And the three things that could have changed everything for me...

When one mom found herself in a situation where all she could do is cry, her own mom did the impossible...
