Thought for the Week

A Continuation…

Your children get only one childhood.

All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.

Envy is a waster of time. You already have all you need.

The best is yet to come.

No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

Friends are the family we chose for ourselves.

Here are some random thoughts to tickle your funny bone. Author unknown.

I plan on living forever. So far so good.

A day without sunshine is like night.

It’s frustrating when you know all the answers, but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.

Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live forever.

Age doesn’t always bring wisdom. Sometimes it comes alone.

Life not only begins at forty, it also begins to show.

Have a great week!

What Will Rogers said about growing older:

First – Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Second – The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Third – Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know ‘why’ I look this way. I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved.

Fourth – When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of algebra.

Fifth – You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

Sixth – I don’t know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

Seventh – One of the many things no one tells you about aging is the it is such a nice change from being young.

Eighth – One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.

Ninth – Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Tenth – Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it’s called golf.

And finally – If you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have anything to laugh at when your are old.

After the weather yesterday, I thought this little poem was very apropos:

“Is it so small a thing,

to have enjoy’d the sun,

To have lived light in the spring,

To have loved, to have thought, to have done?”

Matthew Arnold

 

Thought for the Week

“I shall pass through this life but once.

Any good, therefore, that I can do

Or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature,

Let me do It now.

Let me not defer or neglect it,

For I shall not pass this way again.”

~~Etienne de Grellet

Some random thoughts on life…

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there

An optimist thinks this is the best possible world. A pessimist fears this is true.

In just two days, tomorrow will be yesterday.

Have a great week! Give  your kids a hug, or if they’re too far away to do that, call them on the phone.

Thought for the Week

“These are the things I prize and hold of dearest worth:

light of the sapphire skies, peace of the silent hills,

shelter of the forests, comfort of the grass,

music of birds, murmur of little rills,

shadows of cloud that swiftly pass,

and, after showers, the smell of flowers

and of the good brown earth, –

and, best of all, along the way, friendship and mirth.”

Henry Van Dyke, God of the Open Air

“He’s My Brother”

I’ve been reading Jordan B. Peterson’s book, ’12 Rules for Life, an Antidote for Chaos,’ and Rule 5 is “Do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them.” As he says,

  “You might ask, ‘Limit the rules to what, exactly?” Here are some suggestions.

Do not bite, kick or hit, except in self-defense.

Do not torture and bully other children, so you don’t end up in jail.

Eat in a civilized and thankful manner, so that people are happy to have you at their house, and pleased to feed you.

Learn to share, so other kids will play with you.

Pay attention when spoken to by adults, so they don’t hate you and might therefore deign to teach you something.

Go to sleep properly, and peaceably, so that your parents can have a private life and not resent your existence.

Take care of your belongings, because you need to learn how and because you’re lucky to have them.

Be good company when something fun is happening, so that you’re invited for the fun.

Act so that other people are happy you’re around, so that people will want you around.

A child who knows these rules will be welcome everywhere.”

“To one who walks in darkness there is no black or white or red or yellow – he see nothing.

To one who walks in light there is no black or white or red or yellow – he sees everything.”

Christmas is just plain weird. What other time of year do you sit in front of a dead tree in the living room and eat candy out of your socks?                ~ Author unknown
