If there's one thing Life has taught us,
It gives us Opportunities, few Do-overs
and sometimes Second Chances..

Pick up the phone, Make the call, Take the time,
Stop by...Send that e-mail or whatever...
Take the Opportunities Life brings you!

Just Do It!

"When we are connected to others,
we become better people."
Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

Spread love everywhere you go.
Let no one ever come to you
without leaving happier.

Mother Theresa

"In Life there r no strangers,
only friends we haven't met."
(stolen from Julie Puder Hesler's FB page! Thanks Julie!)

There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though
nothing is a miracle.

The other is as though
everything is a miracle.

~ Albert Einstein

‎"Give thanks for unknown blessings 
already on their way. "
~Native American Saying

Life's most urgent question is:
what are you doing for others?
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Peace begins with a smile."

Mother Theresa

"When one door closes,
another opens.
But we often
look so regretfully upon the
closed door that we don't see
the one that has opened for us."

Helen Keller

Practice Random Acts of Kindness!


Hold Hands...
Not Grudges.

It is nice to be important,
but it's more important to be nice.

Embrace The Moment.

Remember Where You Came From.

Keep an Open Mind and
an Open Heart.


Treat others as you would like
to be Treated.

Be Kinder than Necessary... 
...You never know what someone else
is going through.

Make a Difference.

Pursue Excellence.

Carpe Diem!

"People are often unreasonable
and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may
accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.

If you are honest,
people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness,
people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today
may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have
and it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.

For you see,
in the end,
it is between you and God.
It was never between you
and them anyway.""

— Mother Teresa,
found on the wall of her
Home for Children in Calcutta

THOUGHT FOR Today...
and Tomorrow....

If you want happiness for an hour
- take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day
- go fishing.
If you want happiness for a month
- get married.
If you want happiness for a year
- inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime
- help someone else.

Bumper Sticker Insight for Today:
(and probably Tomorrow!)

Time is Nature's way of keeping everything
from happening all at once! 

"You say, 'If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.'
You make a mistake.
If you are not content with what you have,
you will not be satisfied if it were doubled."
Charles H. Spurgeon

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend."
-Melody Beattie, Author

Perseverence:
Our greatest glory lies not in never falling,
but in rising every time we fall.

Remember...

Life is Easier with a Friend...

 Friendship is always a sweet responsibility,
Never an Opportunity. 
Kahil Gibran

We couldn't have done it without you!

  A very sincere Thank you to one and all!

  

'Life may not be the party we hoped for...
but while we are here, we might as well dance!"

Some people come into our lives and quickly go;
Some people move our souls to dance;
they awaken us to new understanding
With the passing whisper of their wisdom;
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon

 Friends share simple, ordinary times in our lives,

Moments that become memories that stay in our hearts forever
... And we will never, ever be the same.

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer.
Always remember,
you have within you the strength,
the patience,
and the passion
to reach for the stars
to change the world. "
Harriet Tubman

"I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."
~ Mark Twain

Whether you think you can....
Or think you can't...
YOU ARE RIGHT!

Most folks are as happy as
they make up their minds to be.
Abraham Lincoln

"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."
Winston Churchill

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude
from achieving his goal;
nothing on earth can help the man
with the wrong mental attitude. "
- Thomas Jefferson -

The successful person is an ordinary person
but with extraordinary determination.

You're the kind of person, 
Who's hard to forget,
A one-in-a-million
To the people you've met.
Your friends are as varied
As the places you go,
And they all want to tell you
In case you don't know:
That you make a big difference
In the lives that you touch,
By taking so little
And giving so much!

Thanks for being You! 

Happiest of Birthdays to You!

 

One of the beautiful things
about getting "older"
is knowing that your secrets are safe
with your friends,
because
they can't remember them either!

The picture below captured outside a Biker Bar, 
somewhere in Florida!

 

In celebration of World Smile Day...
Share yours with someone who needs one!!!


p.s. Everyone needs one!

 

 

The following smile is from Pam Petrick Monroe. 
Thanks Pam!

Old is Great
An old Woman was asked, 

"At your ripe age,
what would you prefer to get :
Parkinsons or Alzheimers?"

The wise one answered, 
"Definitely Parkinsons - 
Better to spill half my wine than
to forget where I keep the bottle."

More Thoughts from the
"You're not getting older,But you're getting better" file...

The Aging process could be slowed down if it had to work its way through Congress.
(Quote from Will Rogers!)

You're getting old when you're sitting in a rocker and you can't get it started.

You're getting old when you wake up with that morning-after feeling,
and you didn't do anything the night before.

 It's hard to be nostalgic when you can't remember anything.

  You know you're getting old when you stop buying green bananas.

When you lean over to pick something up off the floor,
you ask yourself if there is anything else you need to do while you are down there.

You find yourself in the middle of the stairway,
and you can't remember if you were downstairs going up or upstairs going down.

Laughter is the sun that drives winter
from the human face.

Victor Hugo

"Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends for it is one of God’s best gifts.
It involves many things, but above all the power of going out of one’s self
and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another."  

-Thomas Hughes (1822-1896);
British reformer,novelist

If you want others to be happy,
practice compassion.
If you want to be happy,
practice compassion.

Yet Still More New Year Wishes...

May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your cardiologist, your gastro-enterologist, your urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your psychiatrist, your plumber and the I.R.S.

May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall;
and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.


May New Year's Eve find you seated around the table,
together with your beloved family and cherished friends.
May you find the food better,
the environment quieter,
the cost much cheaper,
and the pleasure more fulfilling
than anything else you might
ordinarily do that night.

May what you see in the mirror delight you, and what others see in you delight them.
May someone love you enough to forgive
your faults,
be blind to your blemishes,
and tell the world about your virtues.

May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls until you finish dinner,
may the commercials on TV not be louder than the program you have been watching,
and may your check book and your budget balance -
and include generous amounts for charity

May you remember to say "I love you"
at least once a day to your spouse, your child, your parent, your siblings;
but not to your secretary, your nurse,
your masseuse, your hairdresser or
your tennis instructor. 

And may we live in a world at peace
and with the awareness of God's love
in every sunset,
every flower's unfolding petals,
every baby's smile,
every lover's kiss,
and every wonderful, astonishing,
miraculous beat of our heart.

Wishing you and yours
The Very Best in 2015!

 

Even more New Year "wishes"...

We wish you health
So you may enjoy each day in comfort.

We wish you the love of friends, family
And Peace within your heart.

We wish you the beauty of nature
That you may enjoy the work of God.

We wish you wisdom to choose priorities...
For those things that really matter.

We wish you generosity so you may share
all good things that come to you.

We wish you Happiness and Joy

and Blessings for the New Year.

We wish you the best of everything

My family and friends,
We wish you a Happy New Year!

A Prayer for the New Year

God grant us this year a wider view,
So we see others' faults through the eyes of You.
Teach us to judge not with hasty tongue,
Neither the adult ... nor the young.

Give us patience and grace to endure
And a stronger faith so we feel secure.
Instead of remembering, help us forget
The irritations that caused us to fret.

Freely forgiving for some offense
And finding each day a rich recompense.
In offering a friendly, helping hand
And trying in all ways to understand;

That all of us whoever we are ...
Are trying to reach an unreachable star.
For the great and small ... the good and bad,
The young and old ... the sad and glad
 
Are asking today; Is life worth living?
The answer is only in, loving and giving.
For only Love can make man kind
And Kindness of Heart brings Peace of Mind.

By giving love, we can help this year
To lift the clouds of hate and fear.

 Helen Steiner Rice

 

RECIPE FOR A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Take twelve whole months.
Clean them thoroughly of all bitterness,
hate, and jealousy.
Make them just as fresh and clean as possible.
Now cut each month into twenty-eight, thirty,
or thirty-one different parts,
but don't make up the whole batch at once.
Prepare it one day at a time out of these ingredients.
Mix well into each day one part of faith,
one part of patience, one part of courage,
and one part of work.
Add to each day one part of hope,
faithfulness, generosity, and kindness.
Blend with one part prayer, one part meditation,
and one good deed.
Season the whole with a dash of good spirits,
a sprinkle of fun, a pinch of play,
and a cupful of good humor.
Pour all of this into a vessel of love.
Cook thoroughly over radiant joy,
garnish with a smile,
and serve with quietness, unselfishness,
and cheerfulness.
You're bound to have a happy new year.
