About Worry: "I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened." Mark Twain

This is a great thread Pakar...thank-you!

To extend on your rain reference above: I was watching the NYC St. Patricks Day Parade. It started to snow...a moderately heavy...very wet snow. One of the host's asked a parade dignitary: What do you think of this snow? He answered...oh.....it is just 'liquid sunshine'! Smile

Watch this...

May You Be Blessed, please watch...

And when there is only darkness

And the storms of life are closing in

May the light at the core of your being

Illuminate the World.

Wake up everyday and no matter how crappy you feel, want to change something for the better. Do something that makes someone happy. Create something that inspires someone. Be someone’s light when they are hopeless.

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world.”

While it is always easier to be cynical and give up on your dreams.

No man (or woman) is an island.

So it goes, by that logic...

"Never give up your dreams,

You don't know who is watching you now,

You don't know who you're inspiring at this very moment.

While you may feel insignificant,

There is somebody who is looking up to you.

It may be a child, a friend or a stranger,

So choose to inspire them.

Never give up your dreams."

Pakar, thank Devious who sent me here to your ten plus year-old thread. And it will take me some time to navigate, but you seem to be a good person Pakar, despite that you keep banning me on that other thread!
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Haha, thanks Bob. Those are kind words indeed.

A good ban deserves another, good fun that thread. Smile

(Has it been that long? I'll thank Devious for being so nice pointing you here...)

This my little contribution to the Café that has helped me so much.

Hope you like it. Smile

Brother Pakar from Malaysia,
although you didn't know it at the time,
I was suffering through some serious issues.
I used to visit here often during those moments.
I thank you for inspiring so many folks to provide
the words, that have helped many folks try to find some
comfort in knowing, that we have so much, to be thankful for.

This made me smile and I hope it does for you as well!

Wow, I'm so touched... I really am.

Thank you for the kind words Devious.

I consider you my brother now... Smile

I'm so glad that you and others have found a little comfort in this thread I started, so long ago it seems now.

So sorry for your loss. I know she is in a better place.

Most of these sayings aren't mine, so to the extent of taking any credit...

I really don't deserve any, as I was just sharing words that have helped and comforted me.

Those who uttered these beautiful sayings are to be thanked.

They are just words, but sometimes, a few kind words is all we need to lift our spirits.

To know that others have felt and gone through what we're feeling and going through can make a world of difference.

Brother, I'm glad that though thousands of miles stand between us, a few words can bind us in friendship and brotherhood. Smile

Brother Devious, thank you again.

It does mean a lot and you just made my day. Smile

And thank you to Steve Brooks and The Magic Café staff for this wonderful place. Smile

And that is a BEAUTIFUL PICTURE. Smile

This is what I try to teach my son.
