Our Weekly Message for September 24, 2003

Greetings special friends,

The days seen to get shorter and shorter as fall has officially started this week. That means less daylight hours for afternoon practice on the football field. I hope everyone is having a winning season.

Here are some thoughts for the day:
"If you can walk, you can dance.
If you can talk, you can sing."
Zimbabwean Proverb
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone, and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
Nelson Mandela, Pres. of South Africa
"As long as you are going to think anyway, you might as well think BIG!"
Donald Trump

Also, we have added the 2004 Summer Camp dates on our web site for you to plan summer vacations in advance.

For those directors who pay for contest fees by December 1st, you will be eligible for a drawing that will include a beautiful set of handmade, leather trimmed luggage, personalized with your initials. Make sure to request your fees early!

True friends are hard to find. It seems the older we get, the more we narrow our true circle of friends that we can depend on through thick and thin. Below is a special selection of quotes about friendships. Think of your best friend today and treasure their loyalty as you read the passages below.

Have a great week, and as always, please keep in touch.
