She Tells Her Grandma That She’s Just Been CHEATED On, So Grandma Tells Her To Do THIS.

A lesson we could all learn from.

This woman was just cheated on by her husband of 5 years. She was having a real tough time accepting what was happening so much so, that she just wanted to give up in every aspect of her life. She was tired of fighting and of struggling, she had no motivation to get up out of bed in the morning. Her life was a disaster.
One day she went to visit her grandmother to seek comfort.
Her grandmother was a clever and thoughtful woman. She filled three pots with water and placed each of them on high fire. In no time at all the pots all came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans.
Without saying a word, she watched them sit and boil.
After around 20 minutes she finally turned off the burners. She fished the carrots and the eggs out of the pan and placed them in a bowl next to the coffee.
Turning to her granddaughter, she asked, ‘Tell me what you see.’
‘Carrots, eggs, and coffee,’ she replied.
Her grandmother then asked her to feel the carrots . She did and the young woman noticed that they were soft. The grandmother asked the woman to take the egg and break it. After peeling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.
Finally the grandmother told her to take a sip of the coffee. The young woman loved coffee, and she smiled as she tasted its rich aroma.
She paused for a moment and then asked ‘What does it mean, grandmother?’
Her grandmother then went on to explain how each of these objects had faced adversity: boiling  water. She then explained how each of the different objects had reacted differently, in their own ways. Before the adversity the carrot was strong, hard, and unrelenting, but was now soft and weak as a result. The egg was once fragile. It’s shell was the only thing that protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiled water, its insides became hardened.
Last but definitely not least, she pointed out how the coffee beans were unique. After being added to the boiling water, they had not only changed themselves, but they had also changed the water they were in.
The grandmother then asked “Which are you?”
“When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?”
Are you the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity you wilt and become soft, loosing your strength.
Are you the egg, with soft gooey insides until it changes under the heat? Are you a fluid spirit that solidify at the first sign of hardship.
Or are you in fact the coffee bean? The bean not only develops in to something else, but it changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, the coffee releases its full fragrance and flavor. When things are at their worst, the coffee gets better, and changes the situation around it.
When things are tough, and I mean really tough, do you elevate yourself to another level?

How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

We are here to tell you that the happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.
May we all be like the COFFEE.

A car full of Irish nuns

A car full of Irish nuns is sitting at a traffic light in downtown Dublin, when a bunch of rowdy drunks pull up alongside of them.
"Hey, show us yer teets, ya bloody penguins!" shouts one of the drunks.
Quite shocked, Mother Superior turns to Sister Mary Immaculata and says, "I don't think they know who we are; show them your cross."
Sister Mary Immaculata rolls down her window and shouts, "Piss off, ya fookin' little wankers, before I come over there and rip yer balls off!"
Sister Mary Immaculata then rolls up her window, looks back at Mother Superior, quite innocently, and asks, "Did that sound cross enough?

A little old lady went to buy cat food.

A little old lady went to buy cat food. She picked up three cans, but was told by the clerk, "I'm sorry, but we can't sell this to you without proof you have a cat. Too many seniors are buying cat foot to eat. Management wants proof that you are buying this for your cat." So the lady went home, brought in her cat and was sold the cat food. . . .

Uma mulher acordou uma manhã após a quimioterapia, olhou no espelho e percebeu que tinha somente três fios de cabelo na cabeça.
- Bom (ela disse), acho que vou trançar meus cabelos hoje.
Assim ela fez e teve um dia maravilhoso.
No dia seguinte ela acordou, olhou no espelho e viu que tinha somente dois fios de cabelo na cabeça...
- Hummm (ela disse), acho que vou repartir meu cabelo no meio hoje.
Assim ela fez e teve um dia magnífico.
No dia seguinte ela acordou, olhou no espelho e percebeu que tinha apenas um fio de cabelo na cabeça.
- Bem (ela disse), hoje vou amarrar meu cabelo como um rabo de cavalo.
Assim ela fez e teve um dia divertido.
No dia seguinte ela acordou, olhou no espelho e percebeu que não havia um único fio de cabelo na cabeça.
- Yeeesss... (ela exclamou), hoje não tenho que pentear meu cabelo.
Seja mais humano e agradável com as pessoas.
Cada uma das pessoas com quem você convive está travando algum tipo de batalha.
Viva com simplicidade.
Ame generosamente.
Cuide-se intensamente.
Fale com gentileza.
E, principalmente, não reclame!!!
Se preocupe em agradecer pelo que você é, e por tudo o que tem!
E deixe o restante com Deus. ..
As vezes reclamamos tanto, quando na verdade deveríamos agradecer!
O que é de fato significativo?
O filho que muitas vezes não limpa o quarto e fica vendo televisão, significa que...
está em casa!
A desordem que tenho que limpar depois de uma festa,
significa que...
estivemos rodeados de familiares e amigos!
As roupas que estão apertadas,
significa que...
tenho mais do que o suficiente para comer!
O trabalho que tenho em limpar a casa,
significa que...
tenho uma casa!
As queixas que escuto acerca do governo,
significa que...
tenho liberdade de expressão!
Não encontro estacionamento,

Os gritos das crianças,

O cansaço no final do dia,
significa que...
tenho saúde e posso trabalhar!
O despertador que me acorda todas as manhãs,

The Best Way To Deal With A Lawyer. This Is Totally Priceless

You know that feeling. You are sat minding your own business on public transport feeling a little tired and then someone sits next to you asking annoying questions. Because you are probably polite and don’t want any confrontation, you would probably sit and patiently answer their questions.
Well the story below is about a woman who was in just that situation but dealt with it in a genius way.

This Story Of A Poor Boy Who Is Rejected By His Rich Love Has The PERFECT Ending

A poor boy was in love with a rich man’s daughter.
One day, the boy proposed to her, and the girl said, “Your monthly salary is equivalent to my daily expenses. How can I be involved with you?”
She went on, “How could you have thought of that? I can never love you, so forget about me and get engaged to someone else of your level.”
But for some reason, the boy could not forget her so easily.
Roughly 10 years later, they stumbled into each other in a shopping mall.
She immediately said, “Hey, you! How are you? Now I’m married, and do you know how much my husband’s salary is? $15,700 per month! Can you beat that? And he is also very smart.”
The man’s eyes became wet with tears on hearing those words from the woman he used to care for.
A few seconds later, her husband came around. But before the lady could say a word, her husband saw the man and said, “Sir, you’re here! And you’ve met my wife!”
Then he turned to his wife,”This is my boss who runs the $100 million project I’ve been working on!
“And if you want to know something strange about him, he once loved a lady but he couldn’t win her heart. That’s why he has remained unmarried since.”
He went on, “How lucky would that lady have been if she had married this man right here?”
The lady looked in total shock but couldn’t utter a word.
Final Words: Life is very short and just like a mirror. You can only see as much as it reflects. So don’t be too arrogant or proud by looking down on others because of their current situations. Things can change with time, just like the weather. Don’t underestimate anyone, because everyone has a different story!

A NYC Taxi driver wrote:

I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I honked again. Since this was going to be my last ride of my shift I thought about just driving away, but inst
ead I put the car in park and walked up to the door and knocked.. 'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.
After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940's movie.
By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets.
There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard
box filled with photos and glassware.
'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' she said. I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.
She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb.
She kept thanking me for my kindness. 'It's nothing', I told her.. 'I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother to be treated.'
'Oh, you're such a good boy, she said. When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked, 'Could you drive
through downtown?'
'It's not the shortest way,' I answered quickly..
'Oh, I don't mind,' she said. 'I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to a hospice.
I looked in the rear-view mirror. Her eyes were glistening. 'I don't have any family left,' she continued in a soft voice..'The doctor says I don't have very long.' I quietly reached over and shut off the meter.
'What route would you like me to take?' I asked.
For the next two hours, we drove through the city. She showed me the building where she had once worked as an elevator operator.
We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived when they were newlyweds She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl.
Sometimes she'd ask me to slow in front of a particular building or corner and would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing.
As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, 'I'm tired.Let's go now'.
We drove in silence to the address she had given me. It was a low building, like a small convalescent home, with a driveway that passed under a portico.
Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up. They were solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.
I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door. The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.
'How much do I owe you?' She asked, reaching into her purse.
'Nothing,' I said
'You have to make a living,' she answered.
'There are other passengers,' I responded.
Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug.She held onto me tightly.
'You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,' she said. 'Thank you.'
I squeezed her hand, and then walked into the dim morning light.. Behind me, a door shut.It was the sound of the closing of a life..
I didn't pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove aimlessly lost in thought. For the rest of that day,I could hardly talk.What if that woman had gotten an angry driver,or one who was impatient to end his shift? What if I had refused to take the run, or had honked once, then driven away?
On a quick review, I don't think that I have done anything more important in my life.
We're conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments.
But great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.....Wishing you all a wonderful weekend...

Pudim Fácil de Coco

Pudim Fácil de Coco
  1. 1 lata de leite condensado
  2. a mesma medida de leite normal
  3. 5 colheres de sopa de côco ralado
  4. 4 ovos

  1. Misturar o leite condensado com as gemas.
  2. De seguida juntar o côco e o leite normal e misturar tudo muito bem.
  3. Bater as claras em castelo e misturar.
  4. Caramelizar uma forma (não pode ser muito pequena) de pudim (com açucar ou caramelo já pronto) e levar a cozer em banho maria cerca de 40 minutos a 1 hora (depende do forno).                                            

A rookie police officer pulled a biker over for speeding and had the following exchange:

• Officer: May I see your driver's license?

• Biker: I don't have one. I had it suspended when I got my 5th DUI.

• Officer: May I see the owner's card for this vehicle?

• Biker: It's not my bike. I stole it.

• Officer: The motorcycle is stolen?

• Biker: That's right. But come to think of it, I think I saw the owner's card in the tool bag when I was putting my gun in there.

Officer: There's a gun in the tool bag?

• Biker: Yes sir. That's where I put it after I shot and killed the dude who owns this bike and stuffed his dope in the saddle bags.

• Officer: There's drugs in the saddle bags too?!?!?

• Biker: Yes, sir. Hearing this, the rookie immediately called his captain. The biker was quickly surrounded by police, and the captain approached the biker to handle the tense situation:

• Captain: Sir, can I see your license?

• Biker: Sure. Here it is. It was valid.

• Captain: Who's motorcycle is this?

• Biker: It's mine, officer. Here's the registration.

• Captain: Could you slowly open your tool bag so I can see if there's a gun in it?

• Biker: Yes, sir, but there's no gun in it. Sure enough, there was nothing in the tool bag.

• Captain: Would you mind opening your saddle bags? I was told you said there's drugs in them.

• Biker: No problem. The saddle bags were opened; no drugs.

• Captain: I don't understand it. The officer who stopped you said you told him you didn't have a license, stole this motorcycle, had a gun in the tool bag, and that there were drugs in the saddle bags.

• Biker: Yeah, I'll bet he told you I was speeding, too.

6 Ways to Lose Belly Fat Without Exercise In No Time - See more at:

Belly fat around the stomach area is highly recommended by doctors all around the world to eliminate. It can expand and rest on top of your organs which spells disaster. It expands into the abdomen and is also called visceral fat. Visceral fat releases cytokines, which are inflammatory molecules. It also causes the brain to release cortisol, the stress hormone. All of these substances are detrimental to your body and obesity is not your biggest worry. Instead, it actually affects the natural production of insulin and can lead to health issues such as heart disease or Type 2 diabetes.
To eliminate this fat, many people lean towards options like counting calories, controlling their portion intake, and doing cardiovascular exercise. However, some other options which are non-traditional can also help. Some of these include eating carbs, relaxing and shrinking the stomach, and drinking wine. Try some of these tips and lose that belly flab without exercise.
1.Eating Carbs
You may have heard that you should cut carbs. It’s actually quite the opposite and you can lose that belly fat without exercising. Try to consume only dark bread, cereal fiber, couscous, and bulgur wheat and there’s no need to workout. Increasing whole grain consumption actually will naturally reduce the intake of other foods because these are satisfying and makes other foods harder to digest. This will make you fill fuller faster and longer and you will begin to eat less.
2.Eat Dairy
By choosing three servings of dairy food on a daily basis, you can lose more weight than you normally would if you reduced calories or took calcium supplements. Instead, choose cheese, milk, and yogurt daily. According to research, three cups a day for 12 weeks will cause more weight loss than just dieting. Fat cells create cortisol and can cause more belly fat. However, the yogurt halts that and allows you to lose the belly fat faster. Linoleic acid is also in dairy foods which aids in belly fat elimination.
It’s true, if you only sleep six hours a night, you can gain more weight than someone who sleeps eight hours. In case you’re a light sleeper, you need to know that you are at risk to obesity. This is generally due to the fact that when you sleep, the hormones which cause hunger, leptin and gherlin, balance out. If you lack sleep, then these hormones kick into gear and make you have an appetite and makes your stomach not feel full. Additional research shows that women who sleep and wake up at the same time every day don’t have as much of the excessive belly fat as other women. If you have bad sleeping habits, the body will start to produce cortisol and other hormones that affect fat storage. Once you start to sleep well, you’ll notice a difference.

4.Start Drinking Wine
When a woman kicks back a beer or two, a glass of wine or two, or a cocktail or two on a daily basis actually weigh less. This is because when women drink, they don’t eat as much. Also, women do not break down alcohol as efficiently and then fewer calories are actually burned.
5.Drink Water
To lose weight, you have to drink water. In fact, if you drink two cups of water before eating, you might actually lose weight faster because you feel fuller. Also, avoid all the sugary drinks and save the calories by just drinking water and staying hydrated. You will keep yourself from overeating and this will help your system flush out some of the toxins through the kidneys. This helps all your organs in healthy working conditions.
6.Eliminate Sugar
The best choice for eliminating belly fat is to eat whole grains, veggies, and proteins rather than processed foods. Also, try to add flavor to oatmeal, coffee or tea with cinnamon instead of sugar. This actually helps to balance blood sugar levels. Oatmeal and cinnamon powder slows the rate of food exiting the stomach which results in you feeling fuller longer.
So with these tips, you can change your diet and lose weight. The best part is that you don’t necessarily have to exercise if you don’t want to in order to lose that belly fat. There’s no reason you shouldn’t change your lifestyle for the better.
