Life is an opportunity

Our great-nephew Jordan wasn't feeling well today and his folks were in a pinch so they asked if Jilda and I could keep him today.
I had every intention  of writing my column this morning and finding a fishing hole this evening, but that didn't happen. 
 Jilda had an early appointment so Jordan curled up next to me on the couch in the TV room to watch cartoons, and I put on my headphones, and edited a few more columns for my book.
I only have five left to edit before I start designing the covers, and doing all the other stuff that has to be done before it's printed.
I'll get up early in the morning and write the column for Sunday's paper, and hopefully finishing the editing.
The muse must be bashful tonight because I can't think of anything worthwhile to write about so I'll leave you with a some words, I wish I'd written.
 “Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. 
Life is beauty, admire it.     
Life is a dream, realize it.     
Life is a challenge, meet it.    
Life is a duty, complete it.     
Life is a game, play it.    
Life is a promise, fulfill it.     
Life is sorrow, overcome it.     
Life is a song, sing it.     
Life is a struggle, accept it.     
Life is a tragedy, confront it.     
Life is an adventure, dare it.     
Life is luck, make it.     
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.     
Life is life, fight for it.”

    good one from Mother Teresa!

  3. You and Jilda truly are a great uncle and aunt. You're so kind and willing to help. Jordan will always remember the two of you.


  4. Thank you for sharing those words, i have thought about this lovely lady recently!
    Last october i went for my first routine mammogram and a tiny piece of cancerous tissue was found.This floored me i was terrified, two weeks later i had this removed and had some radiotherapy treatment to steralise the breast. Doctors tell me it was caught at a very early stage and had not infiltrated in any glands. I realise how fortunate i have been, it was a close call, i am slowly getting back to normal. The first hour when i awake in the morning seems to be alittle anxious thinking.
    Thank you once again for sharing these lovely words, they are so true.Have a lovely day, Best wishes jackie x

  5. Awww hope Jordan is feeling better now!! He's such a sweetie! Glad you got to watch cartoon too!

    Take care

  6. I've read a few of her books and I love that woman. To me she is the perfect example of a Christian. Thank you for the quotes. I hope Jordan will be well soon.
