“The Little Boy and the Old Man
Said the little boy, “Sometimes I drop my spoon.”
Said the old man, “I do that too.”
The little boy whispered, “I wet my pants.”
I do that too,” laughed the little old man.
Said the little boy, “I often cry.”
The old man nodded, “So do I.”
But worst of all,” said the boy, “it seems
Grown-ups don’t pay attention to me.”
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
I know what you mean,” said the little old man.”

That what we do and those we meet


I truly believe
that everything that we do
and everyone that we meet
is put in our path for a purpose.
There are no accidents;
we’re all teachers
– if we’re willing to pay attention
to the lessons we learn,
trust our positive instincts
and not be afraid to take risks
or wait for some miracle
to come knocking at our door.
