Hi gang the weekend rush is on! I hope everyone has had a fantabulus week. This is your last weekend to do your x-mass shopping. Although most of you are through! You are the lucky ones. Those who put off to the last minute wont find exactly what they want and will be forced to take the leftovers. Man have I been caught in that trap before, not fun.

There is no wander we grow old so fast with all the hurry this a hurry that. We rush to eat we rush to work. We rush the kids here and there. Most of can’t stand the thought of slowing down. The computer is a prime example! With all that in mind take note…

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.
2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. “An idle mind is the devil’s work shop.” And the drivel’s name is Alzheimer’s.
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. Be alive while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with what you love. Weather it’s family pets keepsakes, music, and plants, hobbies, whatever. You home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the next county: to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.
10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

This came out of my wife’s hometown paper, The Elgin Revue Petersburg, Nebraska.

Thought for the day, my granpa use to say son, live your life as if there is no tomorrow, there may not be one!
