We have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.”   —   Charles R. Swindoll

(Spoken like a man who’s never had a really hard life.  To a large extent we do have the ability to control our attitude, but there are a lot of factors out there that can do a pretty good job of taking that away from us.  He looks a little like Stephen Colbert, in about 30 years.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.”   —   Charles R. Swindoll

(Don’t ask me why, but this quote just made me think of these lyrics.  “And, it’s 1, 2, 3 what are we fightin’ for?  Don’t ask me I don’t give a damn, the next stop is Vietnam.  And, it’s 5, 6, 7 open up the Pearly Gates.  Well, there ain’t no time to wonder why . . . Whoopee we’re all gonna die.”  Any old hippies out there remember this?  I must be in a strange mood.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for a handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy.”   —   Charles R. Swindoll

(Handful is just about right.  Some people will list just about everyone they know as a friend . . . or an enemy.  As with most things in my life, there’s more of a grey area.  Tons of co-workers, acquaintances, classmates, neighbors, etc., etc., but only a handful of people I seriously call friends.  And, even fewer who I call enemy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.”   —   Charles R. Swindoll

(Such a poetic . . . warning, to all parents, to mind their Ps and Qs, when they’re around their kids.  Those little buggers are just so impressionable!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A Date with Your Family

A family is a place where principles are hammered and honed on the anvil of everyday living.”   —   Charles R. Swindoll

(And family is what Thanksgiving is all about!  It’s what most of us are most thankful for.  Do what you can – hold a hopeful thought – for those less fortunate, today.  Peace.)   —   YUR

PS. Happy Birthday to “The Big O”, Oscar Robertson!  And a very special Happy Birthday to my childhood friend, Danny Golden!   —   YUR
