  • Important People in Our Lives

    Not 100% sure this fits in the spirituality section - it's not religious but more philosophical but I hope it fits in here anyway...

    Love, ICY

    The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the Peanuts" comic strip:
    You don't have to actually answer the questions.
    Just read the e-mail straight through and you'll get the point.

    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 contest.

    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 no 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 three people who have taught you something worthwhile.

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

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

    6. Name half a dozen heroes whose stories have inspired you.

    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 are the ones that care.

    Pass this on to those people who have made a difference in your life.

    "Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.

    It's already tomorrow in Australia."

          I really feel connected to that article. I have a friend who is so concerned about my having IC. She always makes sure that wherever we go there is a bathroom close by. It is the littel things that really mean everything. My Mother always said that every person in life must carry a cross; whether it is an illness, caring for elderly parents or having sick children....when you carry your cross with a grudge, then you will be blessed all the days of your life. Mom always knows best. I feel that IC, in a way is my cross to carry at this time in my life and as crazy as it makes, I try to deal with it one day at a time. Some days are easier than others. Hope this helps someone out there.

            You are so right. I do apologize to Jill and anyone who was offended by that post. You get to a point where enough is enough--for future problems will go straight to Donna or Jill. Be more diplomatic. I can own up to my mistakes and misjudgment. And I am doing just that. I've been here for several months and have posted many posts, and like Betsie, I am 99% of the time supportive. On certain issues that I don't agree with, I am like any other person on these boards and state my opinion. And it's just that--opinionated. Like there are some issues that are offensive but they keep popping up. I decided to just skip over them and don't look back. Back to being supportive, and from now on, anything that seems upsetting will be reported, and not taken into my own hands.

            See you all around!

              I too should have been a little more considerate, with all due respect, it was not out of meanness by any means. I was just confused with the posts and thought it would be easier to explain using the post, again I am sorry I screwed up. I wasn't obviously thinking in my right mind. I never ment in any way shape or form intend to hurt anyone. I try very had to support everyone, this time I failed....

                Bestie, Jess, Cindy, You did not fail at all. You were raising a question and you were confused. Not one of you did fail. You all been very supportive and loving and caring of me. When I am having a tough time, you all jump in and help me get over it and you always encourage me to take care of me and step back and when I am ready to come back, you all welcome me. You all are very loving, caring and compassionate people. We all make mistakes. Don't beat yourself up over it. Remeber those words last week that you gave me when I made a mistake? WE are not perfect. Only God is. Keep on posting. I love reading all your posts. Love you all.
                Hang in there , There is hope.
                There is hope. Prayer works.

                Love, Debbie

                      Betsie, Jess and Cindy, I totally agree with Debbie's post to the three of you, it was right on the money. You three are a great support to each, and every one of us, and Debbie that goes for you as well. I cannot imagine being without you gals. I cannot tell you enough how much your support means to me, and helps me face IC every day, and know that I can make it through with gals like you there for me. It makes me know I can hang in there, just as you are doing. God bless you IC angels, big hug for each of you, luv ya Iris angel angel angel grouphug
