Determination

Monday, September 17, 2012

An invincible determination can accomplish almost anything and in this lies the great distinction between great men and little men.

Just a Lazy Day

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Nothing more to do today but rest, as it should be. Yesterday was a bit hectic but we achieved victory in all seven football games. OK, one of them is soccer but we are the only place the world that doesn't call it football. Yard is mown and I am prepared to rest. It appears that God is in His Heaven and all is right with the world. (At least in my world at least for now.)

Make Today a Great Day!

Ups and Downs

Saturday, September 15, 2012

At some point you realize that life is just that: life. Ups, downs, good, bad, it's all just life. It all balances out, and letting every little bump in the road sideline you is no way to live.

Make Today a Great Day!

    You are right. It's reality. With age you learn to roll with the punches. Sometimes you go down a little longer than usual but you bounce back up. Enjoy the good things in life, and endure the bad. I am trying to live by the motto: don't sweat the small stuff!
Have a great day!

Friday!

Friday, September 14, 2012

THere is something special about Friday. Even when I was working seven days a week, there was still something special about Friday. I think it is a prevailing attitude. There is no real good reason for Friday to stand out. People who give Friday special powers waste 80% of their work week looking forward to the last day and then what, you get to start all over again waiting for the next Friday.

Friday is nothing special. TGIT Thank God It's Today! There are a lot of people for whom today is not today but rather the tomorrow that never came. Their names are listed in the newspaper undcer obituaries. Cherish today and live in the moment. Don't waste today looking forward to tomorrow.

Make Today a Great Day!

Be Yourself!

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.
~Harvey Fierstein

Be yourself, No one else can do it for you.
~ The Torah

When we are called on to account for our lives the only question we will have to answer is "Were you the best you that you could have been?"

~Tieard de Chardin
