Special Kids

A dear friend of mine, Vivian, asked to post this:

Kids with Special needs aren’t weird or odd. They only want what everyone wants…. to be accepted.


Something to Think About

A long time ago a friend of mine gave me what she called “Homework for Life”:

If you have to judge someone,

Don’t judge people by your personal values

Judge them by their own personal values

The Man Who Cleans the Streets

Every man has a story.

Often I find myself watching people and wondering what their story is.

 It is so easy to judge people by the way they look or by the job that they do.  I try not to and find this a big challenge because we all have our personal belief systems that work automatically.

Today, as on many days, I saw the man who cleans the streets next to my office. Every morning when I arrive at work, he is there with his broom and bucket sweeping the garbage and wonder what his life is like. Every morning he says “Good morning” as I walk by. I always wish him a good day.

Every man has a story.

Maybe he has a family. Maybe he doesn’t. Maybe he used to have a job in an office, maybe he came from another country and is trying to make ends meet. Maybe he forgot his dreams. Or maybe he likes the fresh air and the freedom to walk around.

Every many has a story.


Wisdom from Children’s Stories

Working in childhood education for Unternehmensbetreuung many years taught me great respect of the world of wisdom from children’s stories. The first story I remember was a classic “The Little Tugboat” who kept saying “I think I can, I think I can”, taught us that if we try hard enough and believe in ourselves  enough everything is possible.

This week I came across a wonderful book “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Suess and wanted to share this little bit of wisdom from this very wise story:

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer
yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know
what you know.
You Quote are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

Quote of the Week

“We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or world! in the red fire of a long Dream winter’s evening. Some of us let these online great dreams die, but others Introduction nourish and protect them; cheap nfl jerseys nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.”
– Woodrow Wilson
