Second Thoughts Things I Hate RevisitedAfter talking
to a friend, I realized cold rainy days aern't so bad after
all. They do provide a time to snuggle up in your sweats in
front of the fireplace with a good book and great music or to
watch a good movie while munching some yummy popcorn.
See Gayle Shields' Love/Hate list for this week in in the
article about her Pool Party. Send the PJSN your
I Received This From A Friend.... Can You Relate?????
Recently, I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. - Age-
Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. This is how it
I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on
the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide my
car needs washing.
As I start toward the garage, I notice
that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from
the mailbox earlier.
I decide to go through the mail
before I wash the car.
I lay my car keys down on the
table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table
and notice that the can is full.
So, I decide to put the
bills back on the table and take out the garbage first.
But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox,
when I take out the garbage anyway,
I may as well pay the
I take my checkbook off the table, and see
that there is only 1 check left. My extra checks are in my
desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I
find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.
to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside
so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the
Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the
refrigerator to keep it cold.
As I head toward the kitchen
with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my
eye-- they need to be watered.
I set the Coke down on the
counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been
searching for all morning.
I decide I better put them back
on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.
set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container
with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it
on the kitchen table.
I realize that tonight when we go to
watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but I won't
remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it
back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the
I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit
of it spills on the floor. So, I set theremote back down on
the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.
head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to
At the end of the day:
----the car isn't washed,
----the bills aren't paid,
----there is a warm can of
Coke sitting on the counter,
----the flowers don't have
----there is still only 1 check in my check
----I can't find the remote,
----I can't find my
----and I don't remember what I did with the car
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done
today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day
long, and I'm really tired.
I realize this is a serious
problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll
check my e-mail.
Do me a favor, will you? Forward this
message to everyone you know, because I don't remember to whom
it has been sent.
Don't l augh -- if this isn't you yet,
your day is coming!

inspired by her late daughter, writer/director Carrie
Hamilton, Hollywood Arms is the story of three generations of
women living in a shabby apartment at the foot of the

HOLLYWOOD ARMS gets an
enthusiastic endorsement from Carol Burnett and the Pasadena
Playhouse!!! The Pasadena Playhouse, Carol Burnett and a host
of other gracious benefactors (including Julie Andrews, Hal
Prince, Martha Williamson, and Jim Nabors) are spearheading
efforts for the naming opportunity of the balcony theatre at
the historic Pasadena Playhouse to be called, The Carrie
Hamilton Theatre, in memory and honor of Carol’s daughter who
died of lung cancer in 2002 at the age of 38.
Development Dir. Rodney Terwilliger wrote a letter to
Burnett and the staff of The Carrie Hamilton Theatre offering
Stagecrafters’ support in furthering Carrie’s dream and the
vision. In the letter, Rodney described an “idea” for a
benefit performance that would support youth-based programming
at The Carrie Hamilton Theatre as well as our very own,
Jennifer DeRita Scholarship for the Performing Arts. To make
this benefit even more special, Gilda’s Club of Metro Detroit
is partnering with us on this event with part of the proceeds
going toward their youth and family programming which provides
support to individuals dealing with cancer and cancer related
issues. The goal is to raise $3,000 with $1,000 going to each
Susan McGuire, Campaign Manager for The
Carrie Hamilton Theatre Initiative and Carol Burnett met
recently and were thrilled with our idea, so much so that

production of “Hollywood Arms” along with autographed photos
of Carol to be auctioned off at our event.

of Prayer Thu May 4|
Join us at Shain Park in Birmingham at noon on Thursday.
About The National Day of Prayer
Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United
States of America when the Continental Congress issued a
proclamation setting aside a day of prayer in 1775. In 1952,
Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988,
that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer
as the first Thursday in May.
From a news release from the National Day of Prayer Task
As American troops fight for democracy and
freedom around the globe and battle the war on terror,
citizens of the United States are preparing to celebrate their
freedom to gather, worship and pray. Millions will answer the
call to prayer on May 4, the 55th annual National Day of
Prayer, by flocking to observances held in public venues to
pray for the nation, governmental leaders, media, churches,
families and schools.
This year's theme is "America,
Honor God" and is based on 1 Samuel 2:30 NIV - "Those who
honor me, I will honor" National Day of Prayer Chairman
Shirley Dobson, wife of Focus on the Family founder and
chairman Dr. James Dobson, said "at a time when so many
principles found in Scripture have been rejected by society,
it's all the more vital that God's people stand firmly in
defense of the precepts He's laid out in His Word. As we wage
this cultural battle, however, none of our efforts are assured
success without consistent, fervent prayer for God's
"The National Day of Prayer provides
each of us with a powerful opportunity to humble ourselves
before the Almighty and to seek the 'redeeming and preserving
grace' Abraham Lincoln so eloquently spoke! In asking God to
forgive our collective rebellion against Him. We can also pray
for our schools, the media and especially our governmental
leaders, asking the Lord to grant them wisdom, for the
challenges they face on a daily basis. How encouraging to know
that our loving heavenly Father listens and responds to our
personal and corporate petitions, enabling us to 'receive
mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.'"
Noted author and Pastor Dr. Henry Blackaby is the 2006
Honorary Chairman and will address the national event in
Washington, D.C. In addition to his appearance at the national
observance, Dr. Blackaby has released, Experiencing Prayer
with Jesus, which is this year's theme book. Grammy award
winning artist Rebecca St. James will sing the theme song,
America, Honor God.
