Our Weekly Letter for May 30, 2001

Just a quick note to say farewell for a few months until we get back to the office in August. If I get the opportunity, I will send you some meaningful passages here and there in the summer. 

Last call for summer camp registration. We are looking forward to our first camp next week at Texas A&M University. We mailed Camp Confirmations last week so you should have them this week. If not, contact our office so that we can get you the important information before camp. Check the website for schedules, campus maps and other important information.

Here are some thoughts for today:
"Until you make peace with who you are, you will never be content with what you have." Doris Mortman

"To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance." Oscar Wilde

Below are some curiosities that were sent to me by a family member. They were all quite intriguing and who knows.....they might be the winning question on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire! Have a great summer and enrich your life by spreading positive thoughts to others. Resource past weekly messages online in our Line Online Archives.  Keep in touch!
