Fall

September 24th, 2012
Author: Linda W

Fall is here, in some parts of the United States more than others. Fall can be that crisp chill in the air, the colors of the trees turning, a walk in the park, a new outfit, the kids going back to school, a winter coat, or the sign of something else?

What does fall mean to you?

What do you love about this season?

Motivational Poem

September 14th, 2012
Author: Susie Q

I saw this poem being sent around the internet in an email and I thought it was just so profound!

What is your favorite saying?  

TWO
FRIENDS
WERE
WALKING


THROUGH THE
DESERT.
DURING SOME POINT ON THE
JOURNEY, THEY HAD AN
ARGUMENT AND ONE
FRIEND
SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE
IN THE FACE
THE ONE WHO GOT
SLAPPED

WAS
HURT, BUT WITHOUT
SAYING ANYTHING,
WROTE IN THE
SAND

TODAY MY BEST
FRIEND

SLAPPED ME IN THE
FACE

THEY KEPT ON
WALKING,
UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS,
WHERE THEY DECIDED
TO TAKE A
BATH

THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN
SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE
MIRE AND STARTED
DROWNING,
BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM!

AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM
THE
NEAR DROWNING,
HE WROTE ON A STONE:

“TODAY MY BEST
FRIEND
SAVED MY LIFE”

THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED
AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND
ASKED HIM, “AFTER I HURT
YOU,
YOU WROTE IN THE SAND AND NOW,
YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?”

THE
FRIEND REPLIED
“WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US
WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN
IN SAND,
WHERE WINDS OF
FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AWAY.
BUT, WHEN SOMEONE
DOES
SOMETHING GOOD FOR US,
WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE
WHERE NO
WIND
CAN EVER ERASE IT”

LEARN TO WRITE
YOUR HURTS IN
THE SAND
AND TO
CARVE YOUR
BENEFITS IN STONE

THEY SAY IT TAKES
A
MINUTE TO FIND A
SPECIAL PERSON,

AN
HOUR TO
APPRECIATE
THEM,
A DAY TO LOVE
THEM,
BUT,
AN ENTIRE LIFE TO
FORGET THEM

SHARE
THIS WITH THE PEOPLE YOU’LL NEVER FORGET…

I JUST DID!
TAKE THE TIME TO
LIVE!

DO NOT VALUE THE THINGS
YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE, BUT
VALUE
WHO YOU HAVE IN
YOUR
LIFE!

“Be kinder than
necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.”
