A Creed to Live By(one the most classic motivational poems)

Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others,
It is because we are different that each of us is special.
Don't set your goals by what other people deem important,
Only you know what is best for you.
Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart
Cling to that as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.
Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or the future.
By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.
Don't give up when you still have something to give
Nothing is really over … until the moment you stop trying.
Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect,
It is the fragile thread that binds us to each other.
Don't be afraid to encounter risks,
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give love.
The fastest way to lose love is to hold on too tightly,
And the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
Don't dismiss your Dreams. To be without dreams is to be without hope.
To be without hope is to be without purpose.
Don't run through life so fast that you forget where you've been,
But also know where you're going.
Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored every step of the way.

Some Quotes I Have Found Along The Way...

Retirement: It's nice to get out of the rat race, but you have to learn to get
along with less cheese.

I enjoy waking up and not having to go to work. So I do it three or four times a day.

The urge to gamble is so universal and its practice is so pleasurable, that I assume it must be evil.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

What a drag it is getting old.Kids are different today,I hear evry mother say. Mother needs something today to calm her downAnd though shes not really ill Theres a little yellow pill She goes running for the shelter of a mothers little helperAnd it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day.

Hey it worked for us in the 60's, it still works today

Time is Very Sneaky....

My first born turns 50 years old this month! I am looking around at how shakey that makes my mortality. I have things to do, places to go, things to learn. I have never hurried...I like layed back, take it easy, you got all the time in the world. Perhaps I do not have all that time. I have books to read, movies to see. I want to see the SouthWest of our United States. I want to see an ocean.
I guess I must push forward and stop procrastinating.

I Guess John Edwards Is Off The List for Possible VP Candidate in 08

Why was I surprised that John Edwards cheated on his wife? I guess it was his dorky down home grin and southern accent. I should have known better than believe that one happy family speech. He is short. Naturally he would have something to prove. There must be a special place in Hell for a man who would cheat on his wife, when she is campaigning for him while being treated for cancer.

Breaking News.....

I am a channel flipping news junkie.....MSNBC, CNN, FOX. Not a day goes by that I do not check out Larry King Live, Nancy Grace, Greta VanSusteren, Geraldo, and Glen Beck, Katie Couric. My inquiring mind wants to know what is going on out in this world

I want to know if they have found the missing child, the missing mother, the missing pet. I want to know which politician has fallen off their pedistal and banged one of the campaign volunteers, or rubbed toes in the mens room.

Knowledge of what is going on with these people may help me make informed decisions on important issues at some point in time. Even Dr. Phil, Ophra, and the View could perhaps be of some help

I want to know it alll.....................................

What is that noise??

I am sitting here day dreaming, well it is night , but if you are not asleep it can't be dreaming. Anyhow I kept hearing this noise I could not identify. I looked out to see if a car is going is almost midnight, but people do drive by at all times of day or night. It was the strangest thing, there is lightening in the distance, and the strange noise I hear is thunder. It has been so hot and so dry for so long that I forgot what comes before the rain. Well if it does rain. Lately we have clouds and they just tease me.....the rain never comes.

I am so excited that I would like to go out and stand in the rain. I wish it would be a cooling rain, but it seems like the minute the rain stops if we get any, then it is like you just stepped into a saunna ( would have liked to have been able to spell that for sure, it does not look right, but I do not want to even do spell check.). I think I will just read and enjoy the storm, with my luck if I went out to stand in the rain, I would get struck by lightning.

Passing The Time

I would like to blog,
I have opinions to share.
But when I begin to type
my words turn to air.
The End
