Out of the strain of the doing,  Into the peace of the done.
~Julia Woodruff, Gone

My carpet is in!!!! The installers finished around 1:00 pm yesterday.  It really didn't take long at all.  Now I'm in the middle of trying to make some semblance of the mess, putting things away, throwing out stuff we never use, trying to de-clutter just a little.  I did get some cutting done yesterday that I will save for another post but no sewing was accomplished so this post will be a bit different.  Read, think, and enjoy - I did!

The Charles Schulz Philosophy

(This is marvelous!! Scroll through slowly and read carefully to receive and enjoy full effect)

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip.

You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just ponder on them.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.

4 Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series Winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.

These are no second-rate achievers.

They are the best in their fields.

But the applause dies..

Awards tarnish..

Achievements are forgotten.

Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special!!

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

The lesson:

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials..

the most money...or the most awards.

They simply are the ones who care the most

Ta-ta for Tuesday and back to normal for me tomorrow!
