I know that most of us when our Mothers told us something when we were teenagers, probably didn't take the advice. Perhaps we filed her advice away in some distant place in our brain.
My Mothers advice found its way to the top of my mind last week. I am working on a credit card promotion for the credit union I work for, and part of the promotion is to encourage everyone to be aware of opportunities to ask people if they would be interested in one of our credit cards.
The memory of what my Mother told me when I was about 14 came rushing to the surface, "You know that they're going to say either yes, or no. If you know that NO may be the answer and are prepared for it, then ask the question. If you don't ask the question, the answer will always be no."
How many times have we been to shy to ask some one for something? I find myself failing to ask the question - not as frequently as in the past. But, I am prepared for no, and you know what? Yes is quite frequently the answer. So - go ahead and ask!

I just received a MMS Photo of a picture of their berth in the sleeping car. A couple of minutes later I received another picture stating "this" is our room.
Curiosity got the better of me so I called...It seems that she was in someone else's room and after she took the picture she rang for the porter and asked about their luggage - like where was it?
Her luggage was in her berth - in the next car...

I was making a trip from Waterloo, Iowa to Ankeny, Iowa and as is typical - I waited until the last moment to take a potty break. The LAST THING I needed to see was a bus, filled with football players pull in just ahead of me... One of the few times I encountered a line into the men's room. The line was sooooo long I was contemplating a tree...
