I stood, with hands on hips and a frown on my face, surveying her lack of progress. “I don’t think you want your room to be clean.”
“I want my room to be clean,” she answered, “I just don’t want to clean.”
The lazy will not get what they want,
but those who work hard will.

"Well," her brother replied, "there's crazy, and then there's crazy."
She frowned. "What do you mean?"
He ticked it off on his fingers. "There is the good kind of crazy, like Einstein, there is the bad kind of crazy, like super villains, and then there is the other kind of crazy."
"Yes, he nodded. "Like 'There's a banana walking down the hall' crazy."

Usually this would not pose a problem, but someone had inadvertently left my freezer door open the previous week and everything in it had to be tossed out. So it was empty. Until the chicken arrived.
Some people say they could eat chicken every day. No one at my house seemed to mind a bit. I did change it up, making different dishes. You can do a lot with chicken. Not a single complaint was heard, and whatever I prepared disappeared with regularity.
One day I put a bowl of chicken and noodles in front of my son. After he had taken a few bites I asked, “How is it?”
He stirred it around with his spoon and answered, “Tastes like chicken.”
A man reaps what he sows.

"Mom," he announced, "I looked at my bank balance and did some calculations." He sighed, "I'll have to get a job before I can buy a new camera."
Guess that college education is paying off.
The plans of the diligent lead to profit
as surely as haste leads to poverty.
Proverbs 21:5 NIV

I struck a pose and asked her, "How does my hair look?"
She twisted her little mouth to one side and studied my new 'do'. "Well," she said, "it's a little dusty."
I examined my reflection in the mirror and realized that my locks did, indeed, appear to have a dusting of silver.
The silver-haired head is a crown of glory,
If it is found in the way of righteousness.
Proverbs 16:31 NKJV

Know the country you are in and you can more easily identify the dangers ahead.
The rich and poor have this in common:
The Lord made them both.
A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions.
The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.
Proverbs 22:2-3 New Living Translation
