WHOO-HOO! Besides it being May (and my birthday month) I'm happy to announce a brand new opportunity. We are starting Chair Yoga Classes on May 20th at 6:30 pm. They will be here at Eden and Catherine Cortney will be leading it. She's agreed to an introductory price of $5.00 for our first 4 classes. Because it is here, we need to know how many people will be coming, so call Catherine at 349-0874 or me at 721-5977. Limited to 10 people, so sign up now. This is ideal for people with limited mobility and relieves pain and stress and enhances energy and well-being.
IT'S ALL IN HOW YOU SAY IT
A blind boy sat on the steps of a building
with a hat by his feet.
He held up a sign which read:
"I am blind, please help."
There were only a few coins in the hat.
A man was walking by.
He took a few coins from his pocket
and dropped them into the hat.
He then took the sign,
turned it around,
and wrote some words.
He put the sign back so that everyone who
walked by would see the new words.
Soon the hat began to fill up.
A lot more people were giving money
to the blind boy.
That afternoon the man who had changed the sign
came to see how things were.
The boy recognized his footsteps and asked,
"Were you the one who changed
my sign this morning?
What did you write?"
The man said,
"I only wrote the truth.
I said what you said
but in a different way."
What he had written was:
"Today is a beautiful day
& I cannot see it."
Were not the first sign & the second sign
saying the same thing?
Both signs told people the boy was blind.
But the first sign simply said the boy was blind.
The second sign told people they were
so lucky that they were not blind.
Should we be surprised that the
second sign was more effective?
Moral of the Story:
Be thankful for what you have.
Think differently and positively.
Invite people towards good with wisdom.
When Life gives you 100 reasons to cry,
show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.
Face your past without regret.
Handle your present with confidence.
Prepare for the future without fear.
Life is wonderful
if you know how to live!!!
