The "Winners" and "Stars" are not always the "TREASURES"

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip.  A dear sweet friend of mine sent this to words of encouragement in all the "heart" battles I am fighting (with myself)....the cancer, the loss of my dad, the worry about my mom adjusting to life without him, my weight.....etc.

She is definitely one on my list that fits in #s 3,4 & 5 of the second set of do those of you who follow this blog and send me words of encouragement.  

I'm a believer that people come into our lives or cross our paths for a reason and when they inspire you, encourage you, keep you in their thoughts and prayers.....or you can do the same for them, don't take them lightly.  They are the treasures of your life....

Today was treatment #17.  I have 3 more to go....Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  January 15th will be a sigh of relief and a reason to jump for joy day! 
 I wish you could all be there so I could hug each one of you and thank you for your support as I continue this journey.

The Charles Schulz Philosophy

You don't have to actually answer the questions.  
Just ponder on them.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.

4  Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize..

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. 

These are not second-rate achievers.

They are the best in their fields.

But the applause dies.

Awards tarnish.

Achievements are forgotten.

Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier?  The lesson:

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the
most credentials
, the most money or the most awards..

They simply are the ones who care the most.
