End of 2019
Like a lot of people, many thoughts race through my mind as 2019 comes to a close.
So I decided to put my thoughts into words and share with you our readers.
2019 has had a lot of ups and downs,
for me personally as well as our business, but not a thing took God by surprise.
Troubling events in 2019, violence, shootings at school, church, shopping malls, special events, disregard for our men & women in blue and red,
military, veterans, value of life, homelessness, crime, hatred, abuse of children, disregard for property, people in general and
.................YET ...................somehow .................life goes on.........................
We take so much for granted and in so many ways have become desensitized as to what all is going on around us.
2020, I chose to take one day at a time.
I chose to have a vision, passion, a purpose and not waste a moment to be a part of the solution if at all possible.
I can waste time or use it for good and so I chose to do what I can as I can.
God has instilled a purpose and will in all of us and with HIS help, I plan to walk in HIS purpose for my life.
Best things in life are not things. But the people, family, friends that are around us who are the most important.
I want to give a HUGE SHOUTOUT to some people who are extremely important in my life.
OUR EMPLOYEES (present and past)
These people have daily MADE A DIFFERENCE.
Each one of them have given so much of themselves, as well as time with family.
They have worked hard in all conditions and endured a lot to provide service to our valued customers.
We extend our gratitude to each and everyone of them and wish to express how much we value their contribution to the success of this business.
1-1-2020 we will have 365 blank pages to write aka live our story - so write a good one.
Don’t take things for granted, serve when possible, extend gratitude as well as grace.
Learn to trust that God has your best interest at heart and HE will provide.
Learn from things that you can’t change or don’t have control over.
Gain a passion and a compassion for your purpose.
Do life with zeal, learn to laugh, be compasionate, stand for what is right,
do unto others as you would have done unto you,
mean what you say, say what you mean,
your reputation is all you have and most of all
get up each day to MAKE A DIFFERENCE !
I want to share this poem….that I feel will set the tone in my life in 2020.
A New Day
This is the beginning of a new day.
God has given me this day to use as I will.
I can waste it or use it for good.
What I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever,
leaving something in its place I have traded for it.
I want it to be a gain, not a loss - good not evil;
Success, not failure in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it.
~ Dr. Heartsill Wilson
I plan to "BE IN THE MOMENT" and focus on each day
BECAUSE IT IS A NEW DAY - - - - - - TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE !
