Have you ever watched kids
on a merry-go-round
Or listened to the rain
slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short
The music won't last

Do you run through each day on the fly
When you ask "How are you?"
do you hear the reply?
When the day is done,
do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
running through your head?
You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short
The music won't last

Ever told your child,
We'll do it tomorrow
And in your haste, not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
'Cause you never had time
to call and say "Hi"?
You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short
The music won't last

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift....
Thrown away...
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

How We Look At Things

It all depends on the way you look at things
One day a father and his rich family took his
son to a trip to the country with the firm purpose
to show him how poor people can be.
They spent a day and a night in the farm of a very poor family.
When they got back from their trip the father asked his son,
"How was the trip?" "Very good dad!"
"Did you see how poor people can be?"the father asked.
"Yeah!" "And what did you learn?"
The son answered, "I saw that we have a dog, and they have four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden,
they have a creek that has no end.
We have imported lamps in the garden, they have the stars.
Our patio reaches to the front yard, they have a whole horizon."
When the little boy was finishing, his father was speechless.
His son added, "Thanks, dad, for showing me how poor we are!"
Isn't it true that it all depends on the way you look at things?
If you have love, friends, family, health,
good humor and a positive attitude towards life- you've got everything!
You can't buy any of these things, but still you can have all
the material possessions you can imagine, provisions for the future,
etc., but if you are poor of spirit, you have nothing!
