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. Just read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point.


1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners (or substitute some other athletic trophy if you are not familiar with the Heisman).

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant (or mis Ireland, or wherever you happen to live).

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 (or world cup, or Stanley cup, etc.).


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.

Easier?


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.

Sometimes we can find great words of wisdom in childrens books. Like Pooh bear, always full of enthusiasm for life, telling friends who could think of nothing to do, "Lets go out there and wish everyone a happy Thursday"

So Happy Friday to all who visit the forum!

Wisdom dosn't always come with age. Sometimes age just shows up all by itself!

If nobody cared just a little for you,
and nobody thought about me.
and we all stood alone in the battle of life,
what a dreary old world this would be!

God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change.
The courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.

One little word unspoken, may seem too small to say,
But somewhere for that one word, A heart may pray.

Don't be too busy, too serious, too sensible-- at least, not all the time! Remember to have a little fun, enjoy a little nonsense, a sprinkling of dreams, even a few daydreams, to balance lifes ups and downs.
