WITandWISDOM(tm) - May 11, 2005
When life seems just a dreary grind; and things seem fated to annoy; say something nice to someone else and watch the world light up with joy.

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
I had a friend and valuable co-worker who had just done something nice for me. So I went to the card store and bought a blank postcard with a fancy border. Inside the card, below the top border, I wrote "TOP TEN REASONS WHY YOU ARE MARVELOUS."
Since Amy was a good friend and valuable co-worker, it was easy to write ten points below the title. In fact, the hard part was determining which were the TOP ten!
When I presented her with the card, her eyes welled up with tears. Apparently, no one had done something like this for her before. We work in the technology industry and tend to change offices often. The first thing that Amy does when she moves to a new location is to remove the card from her wall and place it in her new cubicle.
She explains, "Whenever I don't feel like a productive employee or even a valuable human
being, I just look at the card and it reminds me that I am."
This simple card was not fireworks or an expensive gift, but it continues to make an
impact. Above all, people want to feel important and appreciated.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
- Driving tip: If you rear-end a car of the freeway, your first move should be to hang up on the cell phone.
- Insurance is a lot like wearing a hospital gown. You're never covered as much as you think you are.
-I frequently go to the opera whether I need to sleep or not.
-I sing in a small Quartet: there are only three of us.
-Next time you pass my house, I'd appreciate it.
-As a child I had a room so small the furniture was painted on the walls.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
One youngster knew the answer when our minister asked the children what a miracle was. "When my mom and dad let me have another cat," she replied.
