Some Things I've Learned!

  • That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.
  • That just one person saying to me, 'You've made my day!', makes my day!
  • That having a child fall to sleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world!
  • That being kind is more important than being right!
  • That you should never say no to a gift from a child!
  • That I can always pray for someone, when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way!
  • That no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with!
  • That sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand!
  • That simple walks with my grandfather around the block on summer nights when I was a kid did wonders for me as an adult!
  • That we should be glad that God doesn't give us everything we ask for!
  • That money doesn't buy class, character or credibility!
  • That it's those small daily happenings that make life spectacular!
  • That under every one's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved!
  • That to ignore the facts does not change the facts!
  • That when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you!
  • That love, not time, heals all wounds!
  • That the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am!
  • That everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile!
  • That life is tough, but I'm tougher!
  • That opportunities are never lost, someone will take the ones you miss!
  • That when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere!
  • That I wish I would have told my mom that I love her before she passed away!
  • That one should keep his words soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them!
  • That a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks!
  • That when your newly born grandchild holds your finger in her little fist, that you're hooked for life!
  • That everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it! And, besides it's lonely at the top, and just room for one.
  • That the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done!
I only hope I can use and demonstrate effectively what I've learned!
