To My Awesome Cyberfriends!

It doesn't matter what you wear
What you eat or what you weigh.
Who cares if your hair's a total mess
Or if you're hundreds of miles away?

To see you in my contact list
Whenever you're online
Reminds me of how glad I am
That you're all friends of mine!

Whenever I need to rant or rave
You're always there for me,
You hear me out on everything
And we so rarely disagree!

Whether there's a problem to solve
Or a funny story to tell,
Though we listen with our eyes,
We understand each other so well.

We've got games right at our fingertips
And funny greetings too,
Whenever I'm at my computer,
There's ALWAYS! ! ! ! ! !
something to do! So here's
to you, my cyberfriends,
You really are the best!!

You make the web sure feel like home
And for that I feel so blessed!

Phenomenal 2 letter Word!!!!!

I'm sure you will enjoy this. Here is one word in the English language that can be a noun, verb, adj, adv, prep.


This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is "UP". It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?

At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car.

At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.

And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it soaks UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP.

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now . . . my time is UP!

I spy!

 Nobody’s watching, so what do you do? And, I don’t mean picking your nose!

What do you do when nobody is looking? Do you work just as hard? Do you remain just as reliable?  Are you just as considerate of others? Are you a good employee? Are you a good employer? Are you just as responsible? Are you a good friend?

If you cheat when nobody’s looking, you’re only cheating yourself. If you concentrate only on what you can get away with, all you’ll do is just get by on the road map of life.

So plant your seeds for achievement on this journey of life because they are only sown when nobody is looking.

We are now approaching the 2012 London Olympics and I’m sure all those athletes who will win the gold medal for their performance surely spent years in training while nobody was watching.

The millionaire entrepreneur like Steve Jobs, a creative genius, spent years working late into the night while nobody watched.

Nobody’s watching now. So, now is the time to be your finest and climb above the crowd. I never believed in doing anything half “arsed”!

And keep your finger out of your nose!

What makes you happy?

What makes me happy? Some people may say it’s fame and wealth. But, hands down, family and friends are number one in my book!

Yet even though we all have a need to connect, some of us always go home alone. You may have people around you throughout the day or you may even be in a lifelong marriage, yet you may feel a deep down loneliness. You’d be surprised to know how many people are in that state of mind.

Hmmmm, so happiness - isn't that what we all want to find, keep and cherish? Nobody is happy all of the time, but some people are definitely happier than others. I’ve observed that most people that are happy all the time reveal that it doesn't have much to do with material goods or high achievement; it seems to be narrowed down to your outlook on life and the quality of your relationships with the people around you.

Just because something seems to make other people happy doesn't mean that it really does. People are very good at pretending they're happy, especially when they've invested so much into the things that are supposed to make them happy; it's hard to acknowledge that you've been placing all your eggs in the wrong basket.

I think that happiness is a state of mind and not something which can be defined objectively. Keep in close touch with your family and a small circle of friends. You can't beat their love and support. And, don’t take advantage of their generosity, kindness and loving support either!

Let go of the drama, it only causes you unnecessary stress and stress leads to poor health.

Be happy! Be good to your family and special friends!
