Thought of the Day – #4000

August 19, 2011 under Uncategorized

Kudos to Bill Keating.  

As you know, many of the Thought of the Day notes I send are passed on from my friend Bill Keating.  Bill started sending them to his children when his first child went away to college as a way to stay in touch.  I got on Bill’s distribution list many years ago and have done the same thing with my children, bride, and friends.  It is remarkable how meaningful a daily touch is to the relationships you have with those you love.  Hope you are passing them on to family and friends as well.

Today, Bill sent out his 4000th Thought of the Day!

Thought of The Day

April 16, 2011 under Uncategorized

Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask How are you?
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?
You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say, "hi"
You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift….
Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.
