Committing to excellence is not an act, it's an attitude. It's an attitude that is captured in this short thought titled: And Then Some...

"And then some...
These three little words are the secret to success.
They are the difference between average people and top
people in most companies.
The top people always do what is expected...
and then some.
They are thoughtful of others; they are considerate
and kind...and then some.
They meet their responsibilities fairly and squarely...
and then some.
They are good friends and helpful neighbors...
and then some.
They can be counted on in an emergency...
and then some.
I am thankful for people like this, for they make
the world a better place. Their spirit of service is
summed up in these three little words...
And then some."

If we carry the attitude of "And Then Some"...throughout our life, when our time on earth is almost gone, we will wait the results in peace.

A Little Fellow Follows Me

1littleboy.jpg picture by nan_75

A careful man I ought to be,
A little fellow follows me.
I dare not go astray,
For fear he'll go the self-same way.

I cannot once escape his eyes,
Whatever he see me do, he tries.
Like me, he says, he's going to be,
The little chap who follows me.

He thinks that I am good and fine,
Believes in every word of mine.
The base in me he must not see,
That little fellow who follows me.

I must remember as I go,
Thru summers' sun and winters' snow.
I am building for the years to be,
In the little chap who follows me.

The Bonds of Love January 14, 2009 2:30 AM

  The bonds of love are greater even than the bonds of blood and that we truly are one family in this world.      How glorious this Earth would be if only everyone followed their example. Wars would disappear overnight. Not a single child would go unfed. Joyous laughter would replace angry shouts. Hitting would turn into hugging. Smiles would sail from face to face, heart to heart, and soul to soul. Everyone would feel the love of God flowing through their hearts and through the hearts of their neighbors. And everywhere you would look you would see the shining eyes of another Child of God and member of your family.
     Don’t be afraid then to build the bonds of love. Don’t be afraid to share yourself with others. You may even find yourself "enlarging your family" as you invite your fellow Children of God into your heart, soul, and life. After all, we were meant to love. We were meant to share joy. We were meant to give kindness to everyone we meet. Mother Teresa of Calcutta said: "Let no-one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile." That is how my wonderful neighbor and her "adopted" family live and that is how I hope to live as well. May the same be true for you.

As the days flutter away, 
Like autumn leaves falling, 
My sunshine has gone,  
Dark clouds are all I can see 
Now you’ve been taken from me 
The flowers have wilted 
Colours seeped away, 
All I can see is black and grey 
Stuck in this monochrome existence 
My rainbows been wiped away, 
Never to come out and play 
To light up my day and make me smile 
But shining up in the clouds  
As dazzling and beautiful as ever 
Some day I shall see my rainbow again 
And I shall be able to smile  
As the colours return.

Touching Shoulders

There's a comforting thought at the close of the day
      When I'm weary and lonely and sad;
    That sort of grips hold of this poor old heart
      And bids it be merry and glad.
It gets in my being, and drives out the blues

   And finally thrills through and through,
 It's just a sweet memory, that chants this refrain,
   "I'm glad I touched shoulders with you."

 Did you know you were brave?
 Did you know you were strong?
    Did you know there was one leaning hard?
  Did you know that I waited, and listened and prayed?
  And was cheered by your simplest word.
 Did you know that I longed for the smile on your face?
    For the sound of your voice ringing true,
  Did you know I grew stronger and better because
      "I had merely touched shoulders with you "

     I'm glad that I live, that I battle and strive,
   For a place that I know I must fill;
     I'm thankful for sorrows, I'll meet with a grin
   What fortune may bring, good or ill;
   I may not have wealth, I may not be great
  But I know I will always be true,
    For I have in my life, that courage you gave,
   When once, "I touched shoulders with you!"
