Love and Thanks

IF you get time this week-end read this and reflect but don't rush it.

One of my Mothers' "LifeLongers" (people you've spent their entire careers at IBM) sent her this-i usually delete things from my mother (sorry mom) but this one idk i just didnt.

Recently i've been thinking about life and how lucky I am to have moved to Berywn. I can't imagine meeting in my life a better more genuine group of people and such a unique set of individuals. Christian, Pearce, Brisco, Kerry, Hanna, Mich, Jake, Chase, Curt, Diego, Andrea, Amy, Davey, Becca ("if i forgot you, i don't hate you, that just my human nature you dig")-- I'd like to think that is us dancing and partying in that picture below..only they need a few more minorities in that pic eh?

Berwyn thanks for last night and every night. I love you guys.

and to my Diamonds across the country sTs, JR, FOX, BRY, The Stews(now one Foster :-P), B Led, JHS, RR, LAW, HC, Nate Dogg and Abster-i Really miss you guys-we should all try and meet in Athens for the first GA game this year-mini-reunion of sorts.


The Charles Schulz Philosophy!

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the?
'Peanuts' comic strip.

You don't have to actually answer the questions.

Just read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.

4. Name ten people who have won ?the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and

6. ?Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is , none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.

These are no second-rate achievers.

They are the best in their fields.

But the applause dies..

Awards tarnish.

Achievements are forgotten.

Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult ?time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special!!

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.


The lesson:

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials..
the most money...or the most awards.

They simply are the ones who care the most.

Pass this on to those people who have made a difference in your life, like I did.
