Proverbs or The Beatles ~ Let it Be

Four friends, who hadn’t seen each other in 30 years, reunited at a party. After several drinks, one of the men had to use the rest room.

Those who remained talked about their kids.

The first guy said

“My son is my pride and joy. He started working at a successful company at the bottom of the barrel. He  studied Economics and Business Administration and soon began to climb the corporate ladder and now he’s the president of the company. He became so rich, that he gave his best friend a top of the line Mercedes for his birthday.”

 The second guy said

“Darn, that’s terrific! My son is also my pride and joy. He started working for a big airline, and then went to flight school to become a pilot. Eventually he became a partner in the company, where he owns the majority of its assets, he’s so rich that he gave his best friend a brand new jet for his birthday.”

The third man said

“Well, that’s terrific! My son studied in the best universities and became an engineer. Then he started his own construction company and is now a multimillionaire. He also gave away something very nice and expensive to his best friend for his birthday, a 30,000 square foot mansion.”

The three friends congratulated each other just as the fourth returned from the restroom and asked

“What are all the congratulations for?”

One of the three said

“We were talking about the pride we feel for the successes of our sons. …What about your son?”

The fourth man replied

“My son is gay and makes a living dancing as a stripper at a nightclub.”

The three friends said

“What a shame… What a disappointment.”

The fourth man replied

“No, I’m not ashamed. He’s my son and I love him. He hasn’t done too badly either. His birthday was two weeks ago and he received a beautiful 30,000 square foot mansion, a brand new jet and a top of the line Mercedes from his three boyfriends.”

For some, you may be thinking “Ah Ha…Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

For others not so biblically inclined, perhaps this…

For myself…Let it Be

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Yeah there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

  1. Did you know that Paul McCartney was speaking of his recently passed Mother when he wrote the line “Mother Mary comes to me”? A lot of people believe he was speaking of the Virgin Mary…but he wasn’t. Don’t know why I brought that up, lol, but it’s just a little factoid. 🙂
