Jack’s Winning Words 4/12/17
“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”  (Henry Ford)  Bob Seger could have had flying in mind when he wrote, “Against the Wind,” but in reality he was remembering his days as a x-country runner.  There are people I know who are facing very difficult times.  How do they cope?  Some say that it is their faith that gives them a lift.  Caring friends are important, too.    ;-)  Jack

FROM RI IN BOSTON:  For some, "difficult times" include grieving the loss of a family member.  Faith is the foundation for getting through it, but caring friends are very important.  Their condolence and expressions of personal love for the person who died bring a lot of solace, essentially becoming a member of "the family."====JACK:  Living through the Great Depression and several wars, including  one which claimed the life of a dear friend...These experiences have helped me cope with life as it unfolds daily.  I have experienced the omnipresence of God.====RI:  Your keen perception of so many things, plus your sense of humor, have helped me observe some situations differently.  You have nourished my spirit.====JACK:  Easter will probably take on a new and more personal meaning this year.  But the old message is still the same.

FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY:  God is good and, so are good friends.====JACK:  Friendship... what a perfect blendship!
