Thank you

Whether he sells you a newspaper
or saves your life
Whether he gives you a lift
or builds your dog a house
.

Whether she rescues you from despair
or bakes you a cake
Whether she lends you an ear
or lends you a hand

Whether they housesit your home
or deliver your post
Whether they give of their time
or give of their table

Whether you answer the call
or send the letter
Whether you help to shift it
or help to reach it

Whether we support, catch, raise, fix or produce
For two short words they sure say a lot!!!

Variety is the spice of life

Life is not a rehearsal –
You can get thru life
as if it were a driving lesson
following the Rules of the Road
to the letter
never crossing the white line
and probably survive to be a great old age
but what if you reached the end
only to look back and wish: If only……..
Each day only comes once
enjoy it to the full,
you will never get the chance again!!!
It may not be necessary to quit your job
– sell all your belongings
and go swim with the dolphins
on a sun baked beach
but why not do something
you have never done before
It does not have to be cartwheels
a hop and a skip will do
………………….to start with

If I can dream

There are no more words required
The picture says it all
If you can still dream
Then you will be OK!

Good Luck

Reaching 21 is not just an other birthday…..
so they say!!!
Up till now there has been someone telling you
what you can and can not do
As a baby when to sleep – when to be awake
when to eat
As a toddler what you can and can not break
or even touch!
As a school child what to learn and how to learn it
As a teen-ager how and whom
to start a relationship with
Later you find out for yourself just how far
to push the barriers and what to rebel against
Then one day it all changes!
With only about 7670 days of practice
You are deemed ready to do it yourself
You can now sleep when and with whom you want
eat and drink what you Want…but
You can touch and break what you want…………but
What or if you want to learn
becomes your choice……….but
The choice of partner is now expanded
to include the whole world…………but
There are no barriers
except those you put on yourself……….and
………………………………………..Only this
one rule remains!
You are now legally and morally
responsible for all your own actions
From now on the buck stops with you!
Whatever you want – See it all – Do it all and be it all – but
………..Be selective and have a great life
(“Good luck” Just in case you need it)

Fortune favours the brave

You can go for the safe option
You can maintain steady progress
You can play it safe
But is that all there is?
Is this as good as it gets?
Next time you are faced with an opportunity
to have a go
Remember – Fortune favours the brave

Happy birthday

Everybody likes their birth date
to be remembered
Especially those who pretend not to care
Secretly hoping
that someone will remember
Here I have the birthday person
waking up on the special day
marked boldly on the calendar
singing and whistling happily
while washing themselves
getting ready for this special day
He opens the door expectantly …………..
Complete indifference………………
Nobody has remembered
They continue to read the newspaper
and study the cereal box!
The disappointment is enormous
Nobody has remembered!!
Nobody!!
But we can see the hidden present
and
Suddenly everyone jumps up
The newspaper falls to the floor
The cereal box is knocked over
spilling flakes on to the floor
Presents appear from under and behind
and more well wishers appear at the door
”Surprise!”
“Happy birthday to you”
and
“Many happy returns” fill the air

Soul Mates

A friend is great to have
A good friend is
very special indeed
When communication needs
no words
When a look sometimes
tells all
then
 A soul mate is someone
to treasure for a lifetime

Let the music play on

Moving to the rhythm of life
Carried by the emotion of the sound
Happiness excludes all else
Let the music play on………………………….

Dinner Party

The flat is spotless
The ambience is warm
The table is set – The music is soft
The candles are lit – The cork is pulled
The menu is aromatic
The drinks are suffecient
but
It is good company that makes dinner
a Party!

Quality Time

A lot of our younger years were spent
Wanting to be “old enough to……..”
and ‘X’ number of years was like a magic barrier
to be reached or illicitly crossed!
To ride a bike ‘on the road’
– to leave school, to wear make-up,
get a job, drive a car
go dancing and / or drinking or even to vote!
We never seemed quite to be
……..
tall enough for the fun fair ride
or old enough to gain entry
or mature enough to get insured in Dad’s car!
As each goal was achieved – another appeared
But
Life is not a race to the end
There is no prize for finishing first
Each day comes but once
and all we truly have
is the memory of our past
and this one moment in Time
It is the quality of how we spend our time
which make the best memories
