~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Nothing truly valuable arises from ambition or from a mere sense of duty. It stems rather from love and devotion towards men and towards objective things. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

Strong Woman vs. A Woman of Strength

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape . . .
but a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape.

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything . . .
but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear.

A strong woman won't let anyone get the best of her . . .
but a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future . . .
a woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them.

A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face . . .
but a woman of strength wears grace.

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey . . .
but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

One time when Michigan State was playing UCLA in football, the score was tied at 14 with only seconds to play. Duffy Daugherty, Michigan State's coach, sent in place-kicker Dave kaiser who booted a field goal that won the game.

When the kicker returned to the bench, Daugherty said, "Nice going, but you didn't watch the ball after you kicked it."

"That's right, Coach," Kaiser replied, "I was watching the referee instead to see how he'd signal it. I forgot my contact lenses, and I couldn't see the goal posts."

The new family in the neighborhood overslept, and their six-year-old daughter missed her school bus.
The father, though late for work, agreed to drive her if she'd direct him to the school.

They rode several blocks before she told him to turn the first time, several more before she indicated another turn. This went on for 20 minutes - but when they finally reached the school, it proved to be only a short distance from their home.

The father asked his daughter why she'd led him around in such a circle.

The child explained, "That's the way the school bus goes, Daddy. It's the only way I know."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

In 1963, baseball pitcher Gaylord Perry's manager remarked, "They'll put a man on the moon before he hits a home run." On July 20, 1969, just minutes after Apollo 11 touched down on the moon, Perry hit his first home run.
