Jon's VU! Boys will always be...?

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

A lady friend was grousing about her brother. While visiting him she went to leave, she couldn’t get her coat on. She found her brother hat tied her jacket sleeves shut.

She said Jon when will he grow up, he is 38 years old? Well, I said girls grow up to be women and ladies. Boys grow up to be men but men are always boys at heart!

Once, as a favor, I wrote an article, about advice to the lovelorn. A woman wrote in saying she just could not talk to her boy friend. Dr. Jon what can I doo?

Well, said I, when next you meet take both of his hands smile and talk so softly. No matter what he says smile and talk softly. Speak of good things, the next meal, going out to his favorite place.

Just keep smiling and never speak loud. He will love you dearly. Little boys love mommy when she loves them and no matter how old a man gets he never forgets the love of that soft loving voice!

The lady called and said it took twice but it worked like a charm. Why? Because all little boys love, and never forget the loving sound of momma’s voice.

This little story is good for any one. When you meet a person who matters to you, discuss things you both like, quietly at first, then sit back and enjoy each others company.

I enjoy civil conversation with someone I love or respect. When I hear the supposedly, intelligent people who run our country call each other sour, bitter names, I question their intelligence,

I can talk without calling into question, the person I am talking to’s honesty, family or crimes against the state.

This advice is not only to the lovelorn, but also to anyone just trying to hold a civil conversation with a friend or someone you would like to become your friend.

When I married my beloved wife Marion, she had two sons who adored her almost as much as I did. I watched he tell two boys how to live. She always spoke softly to her sons, causing them to have be quiet and listen carefully to what mother was saying.

She always gave good advice to them and thankfully to me until the day she passed from us to the loving hands of God.

In her loving memory, the boys and I still try to speak softly and with a civil manner.

Others in this country speak loudly and with no meaning, except for the person who is trying to get a word in and is not listening to the words, only for the sound to stop!

So I will quietly hope you enjoyed this civil discourse and enjoyed JON’S VU!!!
