. . . SADLY, WE HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE TO SOME OF OUR TEAM MEMBERS.
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
There are two days in every week that we should not worry about, two days that should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One is yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed, forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we performed. Nor can we erase a single word we've said - yesterday is gone!
The other day we shouldn't worry about is tomorrow, with its impossible adversaries, its burden, its hopeful promise and poor performance. Tomorrow is beyond our control.
Tomorrow's sun will rise either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds - but it will rise. And until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.
This leaves only one day - today. Any person can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when we add the burdens of yesterday and tomorrow that we break down.
It is not the experience of today that drives people mad - it is the remorse of bitterness for something which happened yesterday, and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.
Let us, therefore, live one day at a time!
I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an after glow
of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways.
Of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve
to dry before the sun
of happy memories
that I leave when life is done.
No life passes without a purpose.
No sorrow goes uncomforted.
We live in the hearts of those we left behind.
Her life will go on forever in the hearts
and memories of those she touched.
Memories are all we have left of the
time we spent with you.
I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I’ll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
(From "The River” by Garth Brooks)
I searched for a reason I could not find
I asked why this?
So much support
So much strength
All this still not enough
To relieve the pain she felt
She held a cover over my eyes
Kept it all inside
Never to release all the worry and pain
Worked through it all
Lived life to the fullest
Now sighs of relief
Each life is a miracle
that changes the world
and leaves it a better
place than it was before.
There is peace in the promise
that love is everlasting.
Smile Is A Sign Of….
A smile is a sign of love
A smile is a sign of care
A smile tells how much to others
You are important and also dear
A smile is sign of cheer
A smile is a sign of trust
A smile shows how you can
Be happy even in hard crust
A smile is a sign of joy
A smile is a sign of hope
A smile teaches you how you can
Remove the clouds of mope
For nothing but only a smile
Takes away your pain and trial
And pick your trouble’s pile
And let you smile, smile and smile.
Day is done, gone the sun,
From the hills, from the lake,
From the skies,
All is well, safely rest,
God is nigh.
Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
(From "Phenomenal Woman” by Maya Angelou)
Today I Smiled.....
Today I smiled and all at once things didn't look so bad.
Today I shared with someone else, a bit of hope I had.
Today I sang a little song, and felt my heart grow light,
And walked a happy little mile, with not a cloud in sight.
Today I worked with what I had and longed for nothing more,
And what had seemed like only weeds were flowers at my door.
Today I loved a little more and complained a little less,
And in the giving of myself, I forgot my weariness.
Carola Von Heyking
Let your life be like a wildflower
Growing freely in the beauty
And joy of each day
Paddles up ladies! Take her away!
