~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"Life isn't a matter of milestones, but of moments." - Rose Kennedy

I DO GIVE THANKS ... For Every Hill. . .

For every hill I've had to climb,
For every stone that bruised my feet,
For all the blood and sweat and grime,
For blinding storms and burning heat
My heart sings but a grateful song --
These were the things that made me strong!

For all the heartaches and the tears,
For all the anguish and the pain,
For gloomy days and fruitless years,
And for the hopes that lived in vain,
I do give thanks, for now I know
These were the things that helped me grow!

'Tis not the softer things of life
Which stimulate man's will to strive;
But bleak adversity and strife
Do most to keep man's will alive,
O'er rose-strewn paths the weaklings creep,
But brave hearts dare to climb the steep.

On a visit to Las Vegas, my husband and I saw a group of teenagers standing outside our hotel. They seemed to be bothering passing tourists, and I became apprehensive when I saw their spiked hair, chains, black clothes and various pierced body parts. But as we got closer, I noticed they were laughing and joking with the crowd. It was then that I saw the homemade sign at their feet: "Take Your Picture With Us - $3."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

The ornithologist J. J. Audubon pointed out that there is an exact number of scales on the leg of each partridge, and that the American eagle invariably has seven tail feathers. This simple fact was overlooked when the first silver dollar was minted, and the artist inaccurately gave the big bird eight such feathers. Later, one feather had to come out.
