A friend emailed me this and I thought there were some things to really consider as we go through each day. Today, being Thankful Thursday, I am thankful that I live in an age of computers and that friends can communicate so easily, no matter what the distance is between them.
I am thankful for wisdom that comes with age and for each day I am alive to live and learn and love. I hope you enjoy this.

'"'ve learned that no matter what happens, or 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 these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a living is not the same thing 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 some things back...
I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.
I've learned I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
Our lives are so short and each day we impact others, whether we realize it or not. It may be a smile or act of kindness to someone who is having a tough time, it may be an encouraging word or just a gentle spirit. Each of us have the ability to show God's grace and love to others; won't you take the time today to share a bit of sunshine to someone you meet along the way.....
Be blessed, Noreen
