Our Weekly Message for February 25, 2004

Greetings special friends.

I hope that this note finds you well. I hope that your team is doing well with your performances at contests as we see some fantastic routines week after week. We just completed four great contests this past weekend. You can resource the results from this season and past seasons on our ADTS Contest Page and look at this week's schedules linked to the Main Page of the web site in the upper right hand corner.

Here are some thoughts for the day:
A recipe for becoming a stable person . . .
A ton of self examination
A pound of understanding of others
Mix well and remove all blame and self pity.
Sprinkle liberally with a sense of humor.
Add, as needed: self-control, expression of your feelings in a
non-threatening way, forgiveness of self and others, and the belief that changing oneself changes everything around you.
Serve with faith, hope and a desire to be a positive role model for everyone with whom you come in contact.
