I have a neat bunch of people that work with me.  They are always encouraging, always, well almost always positive and they are always looking to help one another.  Jodie, Teresa, Patty, Beth, Sheila, Robin.  Just a great group.  I got the following from Jodie this morning.  Thought it was really good to reflect on. 

I’ve learned that , no matter what happens, how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.  I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles four things:  a rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.  I’ve learned that, regardless  of your relationship with your parents, you will miss them when they are gone from your life.  

I’ve learned that making a living is not the same as making a life.  I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.  I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands.  You need to be able to throw something back sometimes.  I’ve learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you.  But if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, your work and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.  I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.  I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.  

I’ve learned that every day, you should reach out and touch someone.  People love that human touch — holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.  I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. 

I can still learn a lot from my folks at work..  how about you?   louie
