I received this from a friend and really enjoyed it.  I have thought about this point often as we name things (streets, buildings, etc) after people who have done great things but it doesn’t take long before no one remembers what they did and then who they were.  I hope you enjoy it. 

 

                        Charles  Schultz Philosophy  


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 post 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.

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 five people who have taught you something  worthwhile.
 

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

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  
.  


 

‘Don’t  worry about the world coming to an end  today.
 
 
It’s  already tomorrow in Australia ‘  (Charles Schultz)

 

 

 

Aren’t  Friends and Family  Great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I don’t know about you but sometimes I think too “big” with ideas and such.  But what is most valuable is playing playdough with my kids or telling my hubby just how hard he works!!  Sometimes the most rewarding is what is overlooked.

Make a “Memorable” Day!
