Our Weekly Message for November 26, 2003

Greetings special friends,

Tomorrow is a special day in this country we have set aside to give thanks for our many blessings. This week, we give thanks for so many things but today I thank you for being our friends, students, clients or business acquaintance. I also give thanks that we are in a special industry that allows us to be surrounded by such positive people. We look forward to each and every event to see familiar faces, new faces and smiling faces.

Here are some thoughts for the day:

No, I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.
Thomas A. Edison

We are not sent into this world to do anything into which we cannot put our hearts.
John Ruskin

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
Ronald E. Osborn

You have the right to say "NO" without feeling guilty. "NO" is an instant stress reliever.
author unknown

I hope you enjoy the passage below on being thankful. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday, and, as always, please keep in touch.

Joyce E. Pennington
President, CEO
American Dance/Drill Team®


Reasons to Give Thanks...

If you own just one Bible, you are abundantly blessed 1/3 of the world does
not have access to even one.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness...you are more
blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of
imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... you are ahead of
500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest,
torture, or death...you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead
and a place to sleep...you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish
someplace...you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

If your parents are still alive and still married...you are very rare, even
in the United States and Canada.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly
thankful...you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the
shoulder...you are blessed because you can offer healing touch.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that
someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two
billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Have a good day, count your blessings, and pass this along to remind
everyone else how blessed we all are.
