Something to ponder upon!
My older brother sent this to me…
I grew up with practical parents. A mother, God love her, who washed aluminum foil after she cooked in it, then reused it. She was the original recycle queen before they had a name for it. A father who was happier getting old shoes fixed than buying new ones.
Their marriage was good, their dreams focused. Their best friends lived barely a wave away.
I can see them now, Dad in trousers, tee shirt and a hat and Mom in a house dress, lawn mower in one hand, and dish-towel in the other. It was the time for fixing things. A curtain rod, the kitchen radio, screen door, the oven door, the hem in a dress. Things we keep.
It was a way of life, and sometimes it made me crazy. All that re-fixing, eating, renewing, I wanted just once to be wasteful. Waste meant affluence. Throwing things away meant you knew there’d always be more.
But then my mother died, and on that clear summer’s night, in the warmth of the hospital room, I was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn’t any more.
Sometimes, what we care about most gets all used up and goes away…never to return.. So… While we have it….. it’s best we love it…. And care for it… And fix it when it’s broken……… And heal it when it’s sick.
This is true. For marriage……. And old cars….. And children with bad report cards….. And dogs with bad hips…. And aging parents…… And grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.
Some things we keep. Like a best friend that moved away or a classmate we grew up with.
There are just some things that make life important, like people we know who are special…….. And so, we keep them close!
I received this from someone who thinks I am a ‘keeper’, so I’ve sent it to the people I think of in the same way… Now it’s your turn to send this to those people that are “keepers” in your life. Good friends are like stars…. You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there. Keep them close!
How To Read Kindle Ebooks If You Don’t Have A Kindle
First, get the free software that can be found at:
I have the Android app for my phone and also the
software for my PC installed, you can also use the
“cloud reader” for online reading too.
Once that is done, then you can “download” the ebooks.
This is the link to all of the books from my recent
(** they are no longer free, that was a 5-day promotion
that has ended **)
Right-click on each to open a new tab is the easiest way
to access each of them.
Near the top right of the book’s page, you will see
a BUY NOW button and the price. Click the button
and they will let you decide which reading device you
want to use.
Open that device reader and the ebook is now added.
You can Sync reading between devices, etc. – consult
the instructions for each reading device app.
Then you’re on your way!
PS – want to know how to publish your content quickly

As always, my best to you —
Do you read, watch and listen to a lot of
information and seem to not really absorb
the true and useful gold nuggets that are
hidden in all of that information?
Yes, you say?
Don’t feel bad, you’re not alone.
Sometimes people just glance over webpages,
PDFs or give a quick one-time listen to audios
and doing nothing more.
If that’s you, here’s a tip…
You will get so much more out of anything
you want to learn from by repeated listening
and repeated reading… it’s just how we
really learn best, and that’s through repetition.
Our conscious mind is simply too weak to
absorb all of the information at one
time, plus we all get distracted by our
surroundings while we try to concentrate
on things that we really want to master.
I have a question for you…
Who in your life is telling you “No”?
Years ago I asked that question of myself.
I discovered there were lots and lots of people
in life who are very quick to tell me “No”.
And the one that was telling me “No” more than
anyone else was…
Once I figured that out I was determined never to
be the one who told myself “No” … others may
do it, but it won’t be me.
Now, ask yourself… do you tell yourself “No” to
things that would really help you achieve what
you want in life?
Be honest with yourself, there’s no one here but
me and you.
Go ahead, really think about it and answer now.
And if you would like to consider me helping you
with other pieces of your success puzzle, I’m
suggesting you begin lesson one of the Ultimate
Success Program and progress through each of
its lessons, one by one, as they connect all
of the power principles of success in your mind
which ultimately creates the successful outcomes
in your life.

As always, my best to you —
