“When you are in the valley, keep your goal firmly in view and you will get the renewed energy to continue the climb.”



Denis Waitley





Here we are the beginning of a new week. I pretty much hibernated last week though I did venture out a couple of times but found that it was more challenging then usual. When I decided to go out to see how fast I could run it took me so long to walk to the door I forgot why I was there… Continue

Thank You!



I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.



Ralph Waldo Emerson





I hope your Thanksgiving (if you live in the U.S.) yesterday went at least as well as mine did. I added a pretty hefty cold to my blood loss recovery which took my mind off how slow I was getting back to normal. My lowered energy level also resulted in my wife taking over the kitchen and making a great dinner with… Continue

Thanks for being there



I do not think of all the misery, but of the glory that remains. Go outside into the fields, nature and the sun, go out and seek happiness in yourself and in God. Think of the beauty that again and again discharges itself within and without you and be happy.



Anne Frank





As most of you know tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in the United States. It is a national holiday, a day that provides us the opportunity to review… Continue

I'm restarting!



It does not matter how deep you fall, what matters is how high you bounce back.



Unknown





One of the things I really enjoy is lunching with my grandchildren. My second oldest grandson and I have been getting together most Mondays lately and it is always a stimulating experience. He is a University student that carries a full load while working lots of hours at a local Target store. Monday is his day off which he uses… Continue

I have a good excuse, I was in Intensive Care!



Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription.



Val Saintsbury





I am sorry that there were no Dailies after last Monday, I have a good excuse. On November 6th I had minor Colon surgery and then last Monday, ten days later the surgical site opened and I began losing blood. I was taken to the hospital emergency room where they verified that I was having a major problem and admitted me to the… Continue

Confucius said.............



To be able under all circumstances to practice five things constitutes perfect virtue; these five things are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness and kindness.



Confucius





I had the good fortune to attend a lecture and discussion last week on Confucianism. It was an excellent program and reminded me of the wisdom imparted by Confucius over the centuries. It was also helpful for the attendees to be… Continue

I'd rather be a helpful consultant than a critic



In each family a story is playing itself out, and each family's story embodies its hope and despair.



Auguste Napier:





This is a big weekend for me as I will spend much of it with three of my older grandsons. One will be arriving by bus from his college in another state this afternoon and he has asked me to join him for lunch and a movie tomorrow that he thinks we will both enjoy. I’ll be taking him back to the bus… Continue

HELP!!!



To do anything truly worth doing, I must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in with gusto and scramble through as well as I can.



Og Mandino





Yesterday I heard the head of our Central Indiana United Way share her concerns about our community in the months and even years ahead. The headlines that morning said the State was going to have to cut significant support of programs helping… Continue

Peace be with you



I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask, "Mother, what was war?"



Eve Merriam





I am off early this morning to a full day of activities so I’ll be using another reprint. I will not be joining in any Veteran’s Day activities; my Navy uniform from my Korean War days does not fit since I am almost 100 pounds heavier than I was then.

Let your heart lead



“The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart.”





I have had a number of occasions lately to hear about how the exuberance of youth fades as the years go by. Some of us have never recovered from the pain of a lost love and limit ourselves for fear of being hurt. Most of us however just get too busy to truly follow our hearts. Over coffee this morning a friend and I discussed how youthful dreams and… Continue

All you have to do is ask!



What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?



George Eliot





I sometimes wonder if we are not our own worst enemy. The one thing most of us share these days is dealing with some pretty tough times. Job loss, shrinking income, rising tuition costs, reduced retirement income, and so much more have put many of us into a quandary as how we can best deal with the future and yet we are… Continue

We need more like him!



I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love.



Mother Teresa





I had lunch the other day with a college student who I hold in high regard. He has the strength of character to have chosen a well rounded education with a focus on his interest in the world’s culture and history in addition to taking courses that can sharpen his already well developed literary… Continue

He's doing it again!



Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music.



William Stafford





Ok here’s the deal, it is almost 3 PM and I just got home from a series of meetings that has had me going since 6:30 this morning, so in the interest of sending you something coherent I am again pulling from the files.



There will be no Daily Friday since I will be spending most of the day at the hospital getting speared… Continue

Important? Do it! Unimportant? Forget it!



“Don't be a time manager, be a priority manager. Cut your major goals into bite-sized pieces. Each small priority or requirement on the way to ultimate goal become a mini goal in itself.”



Denis Waitley





I had breakfast this morning with a professor friend who is on sabbatical. I always enjoy our visits as she has a unique world view that comes from years of research as the co-director of a University based center on… Continue

Come on, loosen up!



“Celebrate your success and find humor in your failures. Don’t take yourself so seriously. Loosen up and everyone around you will loosen up. Have fun and always show enthusiasm. When all else fails, put on a costume and sing a silly song.”



Sam Walton















The other day I read a small piece called “How to Loosen-Up is Done by Letting Go” I don’t even know who wrote it. It suggested the… Continue
