Jack’s Winning Words 5/3/17
“Life is not always what one wants it to be, but make the best of it, as it is the only way of being happy.”  (Lady Randolph Churchill)  In the song, Coal Miner’s Daughter, Loretta Lynn sings, “We were poor, but we had love.”  Life doesn’t always go well, even for rich people.  Dale Carnegie used the analogy of making lemonade out of life’s “lemons” in his book, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living.  Have you heard of some good recipes for lemonade?    ;-)  Jack

FROM ST PAUL IN ST PAUL:  words to live by today.  thanks, Jack.====JACK:  You might start today by having a cool glass of lemonade.

FROM CHESTER THE GOOD:  An Arnold Palmer====JACK:  Are you sure you don't mean a Shirley Temple?

FROM AW IN ILLINOIS:  Funny you should ask: today I was at a Chamber of Commerce  fair...and one group located near the airport was a 1 ounce cup, something they called"jet fuel"    . As I tasted it, the  merchant said it was a combo of lemonade, tea, and vodka!    One ounce to a person.====JACK:  You weren't driving, were you?

FROM BLAZING OAKS:  I read her biography (recently published) this winter, and it was most interesting; She certainly had challenges, being married to a pretty self-focused husband, She was hard-working, and loyal; Winston wouldn't have accomplished what he did  without her, for sure!
As Paul says in Philippians, "I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content." That's a pretty good lesson to learn, especially as one grows older and must accept the limitations age imposes (or illness).====JACK:  No one knows what it was like to be Lady Churchill, because she was the only one who was Lady C.  The same goes for you...and me.

FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY:  It's a good thing we don't get what we want out of life sometimes but we always get what we need!  I've never cared too much for lemonade but I do love iced tea! ====JACK:  I've never care too much for iced tea, but I do like lemonade.  Maybe our compromise would be a drink called, an Arnold Palmer.
