On The Bricks

January 18, 2017

Deadlines really do show you what you’re made of … I am obviously made of something unfocused and ditzy. Here are several days to get a ton of nomination packets done and I’m thinking that writing another column is a good idea. Ignoring does not make something go away, no matter how many times I try it.

But, the fact is, reading my email there was one that had some great insight that is good to share. Oh, yeah, I probably should have been at the task of nominations rather than reading emails, but it is what it is. Well, let’s get on with the sharing.

Once all villagers decided to pray for rain, on the day of prayer all the people gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella. That’s FAITH!

When you throw a baby in the air, she laughs because she knows you will catch her. That’s TRUST!

Every night we go to bed, without any assurance of being alive the next morning but still we set the alarms to wake up. That’s HOPE!

We plan big things for tomorrow, in spite of zero knowledge of the future. That’s CONFIDENCE!

We see the world suffering, but still we get married and have children. That’s LOVE!

On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence “I am not 90 years old … I am sweet 16 with 74 years of experience.” That’s ATTITUDE!

May your days be filled with faith, friends and family worth your trust, hope, confidence, and love.

See you on the bricks!
