Our Weekly Message for February 18, 2004

Greetings special friends,

I am sure our friends up north will laugh but many of us here in Central, north and East Texas saw the first snow that we have had in a few years. It was quite a site to behold. Thank God, everyone was safe on the roads with all of the contests.

Here are some thoughts for the day:
"You never get a second chance to make a first impression."
"Your attitude will determine your altitude."
Four most important words: "I'm here for you."
"Ideas are like crying children in church; they both ought to be carried out."

As many of use live each day by the Ten Commandments, Franziska Jaeger contributed ten more that are certainly something to ponder below.

Hope your Contest Season is going well. Have a wonderful week, and as always, please keep in touch.

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

Ten More Commandments

1. Thou shalt not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.
2. Thou shalt not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.
3. Thou shalt not cross bridges before you come to them, for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.
4. Thou shalt face each problem as it comes; you can only handle one at a time anyway.
5. Thou shalt not take problems to be with you, for they make very poor bedfellows.
6. Thou shalt not borrow other people's problems. They can better care for them than you can.
7. Thou shalt not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, for it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy now.
8. Thou shalt be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own. It is hard to learn something new when you are talking; some people do know more than you do.
9. Thou shalt not become bogged down by frustration, for 90% of it is rooted in self-pity and will only interfere with positive action.
10. Thou shalt count thy blessings, never overlooking the small ones ––for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one!
