May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
One day my housework-challenged husband decided to wash his Sweatshirt.
Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me, "What
setting do I use on the washing machine?"
"It depends," I replied. "What does it say on your shirt?"
He yelled back, "University of Oklahoma."

~~sumitted by Chippewa ^i^~~ One man, who had to spend some time in a hospital,
waited day after day to receive a card or a telephone call
from those who cared. Some people, who he expected to call
or write, did not. Others, who the man had not felt close

~~sumitted by Chippewa ^i^~~ We could learn from the bears in the woods how to turn up opportunities. To nourish themselves, they turn over logs
and stumps to get insects. When they smell honey, they will climb a tree after it, and when they see berries they will move branches aside to get at them. By doing this,

and we turn our lives into fulfilling adventures.
What opportunites are available today?
