Ray Alcorn has accused me of having an evil twin brother. ( LOL) I think we all have a hard and soft side. I’m a 100%er so mine shows more. Besides I think we both know that when you’re dealing in a tuff business world, you have to rise to the occasion.

I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday Cork,

Thought for the day…

Subject: I’m Learning

Courtesy Gene Lewis, Okmulgee, OK

On a positive note . . .

I’m learning that no matter what happens, or how bad
it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better

I’m learning that you can tell a lot about a person by
the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy
day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I’m learning that regardless of your relationship with
your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from
your life.

I’m learning that making a “living” is not the same
thing as making a “life.”

I’m learning that life sometimes gives you a second

I’m learning that you shouldn’t go through life with a
catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to
throw something back.

I’m learning that if you pursue happiness, it will
elude you. But if you focus on your family, your
friends, the needs of others, your work and doing the
very best you can, happiness will find you.

I’m learning that whenever I decide something with an
open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I’m learning that even when I have pains, I don’t have
to be one.

I’m learning that every day you should reach out and
touch someone. People love that human touch - holding
hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I’m learning that I still have a lot to learn.

I’ve learned that you should pass this on to someone
you care about. I just did. Sometimes they just need a
little something to make them smile.

Note: people will forget what you said, people will
forget what you did, but people will never forget how
you made them feel . . .

Very nice Ed I hope eveyone stops and reads this thought for the day. We are all still learning and learning how to feel compassion and care for others is so very important. Something made me stop at this thought of the day,I usually pass by them.

Thanks for this Ed. Made me smile and get things back in perspective somewhat on “not one of my better days”. The last line is it! So very, very true.
