To my friends,
Time goes so fast. Or – I am getting really slow. Here are a few of my favorite sayings from over the years.
THINK before you speak.
T – is it true?
H – is it helpful?
I – is it inspiring?
N – is it necessary?
K – is it kind?
When you teach your son, you teach your son’s son.
Little by Little
“I can’t,” never did anything.
“I’ll try,” can do wonders.
“I will,” can perform miracles!
Be not weary in well-doing,
Though your labors cause you pain.
There has always been a harvest
From the sowing of the grain.
For all the heartaches and the tears,
For gloomy days and fruitless years,
I do give thanks, for now I know,
These were the things that helped me grow.
Life is an onion.
You peel off one layer at a time,
And sometimes you weep.
God grant me the ability to prioritize the things I cannot delegate,
The courage to say no when I need to,
And the wisdom to know when to go home.
I do not know the author of these sayings, but I do know they were human, just like you and me. We all need to remember that everyone faces tough times, absolutely everyone, and we can make it through. Friends and family can help, if we let them. It is up to us. If we are sure it won’t get better, it won’t. Believe that time will heal, things will get better, and it does, slowly, but it does. Believe – and put a smile on your face – they are contagious. Barb
