Thoughts to ponder. . . .

I got an email the other day about Andy Rooney. You all know him he is the cranky humorous gentlemen who blesses our life with the simplest of thoughts and ideas. He brings to mind the phrase "Stop and smell the roses". This particular email focused on some particular life lessons that he has learned. It is surprising that what he considers best learned does not include Heads of State, or College Professors, it's the every day life that we all take for granted. I thought I would list just a few.
  • The best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.
  • That when you're in love, it shows.
  • That being kind is more important than being right.
  • That I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way.
  • That we should be glad that God doesn't give us everything we ask for.
  • That everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.
Those were just a very few of the many things that this lovely man has blessed our lives with over the years.
