If there's one thing Life has taught us,
It gives us Opportunities, few DO-Overs
and occasionally 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?

"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!

Bradford Class of 1975,
Friends, Family and all others!

"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

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.

"I welcomed my first grand baby on June 21st. This Glama is over the moon. Her name is Elliana born 6/27/21!"

Congratulations Blanca and family!

My father was so happy to get to know so many of my classmates throughout the years. He's always enjoyed joining in on class projects or just some of the many parties I had throughout the years.

On behalf of myself and my family I'd like to thank you all for the thoughts and prayers.

I'm happy to remember all good times and bad, it's the circle of life

This update is from Robert Hurst! Congratulations Bob!
"Well, I finally did it. Retired as of 12/31/2020. Thirty five years at the post office. The last year being probably the most challenging. The plandemic created an almost impossible work atmosphere. The mail was as heavy as I've seen in twenty years. And the abject fear of the public was very disconcerting. As always I tried to serve my customers with the utmost compassion and respect. Now on to the next chapter in my life."

'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...

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.

My son is a Captain in the Marines....He is getting Deployed next month, this would be his 4th deployment. I will try and hit Bakers street on Friday
Hope everyone have a safe time
