New Quote from Jack Warder a teacher I know from the Jackson YMCA ("You will never be younger than you are right now." )

Jack always uses his positive attitude to make his like better.  He is a little hard of hearing, but, so am I so sometimes I have to read his lips.  But, his message is always positive and always good.  He is a good man, he always tries to be Christ like.


These  Bible quotes were given to me by Tim Tennis:  a Former Vietnam Nam Combat Veteran.  Tim and I are members of the YMCA in Jackson, Michigan.  Tim is a warm, caring and compassionate human being a good friend and I'm am honored to know him.  I have grown because of his spiritual strength.

Thanks for the opportunity to share these verses,



I have some new quotes from Jack Warder a teacher I know from the Jackson YMCA who is a strong Christian and a very nice person:

1) Experiences can be painful; we need to ask ourselves what
we can learn from them.

2)We all have a past and need to plan for the future,but the
only time we have is now.

3) Smile rather than scream

4) What would ya do if ya knew you only had one hour to
live, and why are you waiting

2.)  On taking risk – “ If you take risk, you may fail. But if you don’t take risks, you will surely fail. The greatest risk of all is to do nothing. – Robert Goizueta – Executive.

 This particular quote was always a great motivator to try something new.  Venture out, and don't let imagined fears hold you back from something you want to accomplish.

1.)  On Dealing with People" The first gift we can bestow on others is a good example."  Thomas Morall





You have the power to change your life.  Just some little changes can make a big difference.  Start with going for a walk with your spouse a half hour or take a walk with your best friend, a lot of times it's your dog and believe me they like to go for walks.  They love being outside and seeing the world.  My big black poodles Lucy and Ellie can't wait to go to the football field  or baseball field and run wild.  They are my girls and I love them very much.  However bad a day you may have they are still wagging their tails and wanting to play.

Try not eating after 8 O'Clock at night until the next morning allowing 12 hours inbetween meals.  It gives your body a chance to settle as well as not taking in any extra calories.

Watch the news and read the paper be informed on what is going on in the world from sports to news to weather be aware.

Try to be nice to people. Most people want to be nice to others.  If you make the first move it can catch on.
