Our Weekly Message for May 5, 2004

Greetings special friends,

I hope that this day finds you excited about life and what is around the corner for you. Many of high school and college seniors are about to embark on new journeys for careers and other future ahead of them. School is winding down with just a few weeks left. I hope that your summer looks promising and exciting ahead as it does for us. Don't forget to check out the ADTS Summer Camps page for a camp near you.

Here are some thoughts for the day:
"It is easier to go down a hill than up, but the view is best from the top."
"Courage is contagious. When a brave person takes a stand,
the spines of others are stiffened." Billy Graham
"You are the only person on this earth who can use your ability."
"The best way to forget your own problems is
to help someone else solve theirs."

Our pets are truly our best friends sometimes. A friend from San Antonio sent me the passage below since we both have several pets. (We have 4 cats and two dogs that venture between our home and the office each day.) If you have a pet, this passage will hit home with you.

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