Years ago, there was a woman who was turning 80.  She had 3 daughters, and they said, “We’ve gotta do something special for Mom’s 80thbirthday.” The first one said, “I’m buying her a brand new Mercedes, fully loaded.” The other two were impressed. The second one said, “I’m buying her a 2-story beach house on the ocean.” “Wow!”, they said. The third one said, “Well, I have something different. I’ve trained a parrot to memorize the entire New Testament.”

The 80thbirthday came, and the woman called the first and said, “Honey, I love the new Mercedes, but I turned in my license.  I’m 80 years old and just can’t use it, but thank you anyway.” She called the second one and said, “Sweetheart, the 2-story beach house is beautiful, but I had my knees worked on, and I just can’t climb stairs anymore but thank you anyway.” Finally, she called the third one and said, “Sweetheart, I just want you to know that chicken was absolutely delicious.”

Enjoy the day.
