We still have a great deal to learn in our lifetime Print E-mail

A friend of mine saw a letter to the editor in a newspaper and sent it to me. He thought it has some really great truths to it and I thought I would print it in The Falmouth Outlook for our subscribers and others to read. The author is unknown.

We Still Have Much To Learn

I've learned that no matter what happens or how bad it seems today, life goes on and let's just hope for a better tomorrow.

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she handles things such as a rainy day, a slow driver in front of you when you have to be some place at a certain time, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you will sure miss them when they are gone from  your life.

I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

And I've also learned you should never go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands. You just might need to be able to throw something back.

I've learned that if you pursue happiness it will elude you. But if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, your work and doing the best you can, happiness finds you.

I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart that usually I have made a right decision.

I have learned that when I have  pain, I don't have to be one.

I've learned that everyday we need to reach out and touch someone. People love the human touch, just holding hands, a warm hug, or just a pat on the back. People may forget what you said and they may forget what you did. But they will never forget how you made
them feel.

But I still have a lot to learn.  Just pass this on to everyone you care about as I just did. Sometimes they just need a little something to make them smile.
