I hope that all of you are refreshed from spring
break and ready to tackle school again. With the
weather changing so quickly we have summer like
weather in some areas and blizzards in other
areas. Hope you are one of the lucky ones getting
sunshine like we are.
Here are some thoughts for the day on "purpose":
"The longer I live, the more I am certain that the
great difference between the great and the
insignificant, is energy - invincible
determination - a purpose once fixed and then
death or victory." -- Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton
"You must be single-minded. Drive for one thing on
which you have decided."
-- George S. Patton
"The chief distinguishing characteristic of
leaders is Intensity of Purpose."
-- Brian Tracy
"How different our lives are when we really know
what is deeply important to us, and keeping that
picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to
be and to do what really matters most." -- Stephen

The Dancer Mom's 23rd Psalm
"The dance schedule is my ruler,
I shall never make it there on time!
It maketh me to look for the costume hair accessories at
It destroyeth my sleep!
It filleth my car with odd dance shoes,
It turneth me into a fast food junkie!
It forceth me to loose my "Cool",
The judges ejecteth me from the competitions!
Yea though I faithfully sit at the studio night after
I fear great evil for I have lost a sandasol!
One pom-pom getteth left at home...
I forgetteth Thursday class,
And the dog dineth upon a Jazz boot!
Surely costumes, tights, and dance shoes
Shall empty my wallet all the days of my life
And I shall dwell in the Dance Shop forever!"
