From My Cousin, Cheryl White Wilson (James Blair HS / John Marshall HS - '64) of VA - 02/23/15:
|“The longer I live,
the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is
more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than
education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success,
than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than
appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company...a
church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day
regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change
our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain
way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play
on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that
life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it.
And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes.”
Thank you, Cheryl!
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 02/23/15 - "Sorry to hear":
Sorry to hear that you are unable to attend your class reunion. We had so much fun a few years ago when you and Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and I all stayed together and went on the Magical Mystery Tour together.....
you so much, Jean!
That is one
of my very favorite memories of all time!
I wish..... Sigh.
We here in Fayetteville had 2'"or 3" of that lovely snow today - canceling everything - and we're told we can expect 2" to 6" more tomorrow! It's crocheting weather for sure and certain! Enjoy your creativity, and send us pictures of your projects, not to mention your grandson!
