When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves. - William Arthur Ward
~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Hope You Dance...
I'm reading more and dusting less. I'm sitting in the yard and admiring the view without fussing about the weeds in the garden. I'm spending more time with my family and friends and less time working. Whenever possible, life should be a pattern of experiences to savor, not to endure. I'm trying to recognize these moments now and cherish them.
I'm not "saving" anything; we use our good china and crystal for every special event such as losing a pound, getting the sink unstopped, or the first Amaryllis blossom.
I wear my good blazer to the market. My theory is if I look prosperous, I can shell out $28.49 for one small bag of groceries. I'm not saving my good perfume for special parties, but wearing it for clerks in the hardware store and tellers at the bank.
"Someday" and "one of these days" are losing their grip on my vocabulary. If it's worth seeing or hearing or doing, I want to see and hear and do it now.
I'm not sure what others would've done had they known they wouldn't be here for the tomorrow that we all take for granted. I think they would have called family members and a few close friends. They might have called a few former friends to apologize and mend fences for past squabbles. I like to think they would have gone out for a Chinese dinner or for whatever their favorite food was. I'm guessing; I'll never know.
It's those little things left undone that would make me angry if I knew my hours were limited. Angry because I hadn't written certain letters that I intended to write one of these days. Angry and sorry that I didn't tell my husband and parents often enough how much I truly love them. I'm trying very hard not to put off, hold back, or save anything that would add laughter and luster to our lives. And every morning when I open my eyes, tell myself that it is special.
Every day, every minute, every breath truly is a gift from God.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Golf can best be defined as an endless series of tragedies obscured by the occasional miracle.
The best wood in most amateurs' bags is the pencil - Chi Chi Rodriguez
If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball. - Jack Lemmon
Tee your ball high... air offers less resistance than dirt. - Jack Nicklaus
Why is it twice as difficult to hit a ball over water than sand?
Only a foolish golfer throws his club behind him. The smart golfer throws his club ahead so he can pick it up on the way to the next hole.
If you have lost more than four balls on any given hole, for safety reasons, let your partner drive the cart.
