A Song Worth Listening To

Kate Smith singing God Bless America
I couldn't resist posting this. Received it in an email.

The story behind this song:
In early 1940, Kate Smith, a fiercely patriotic American, and the biggest star on radio,
was deeply worried  about her country.  She asked Irving Berlin if he could give her a
song that would reignite the spirit of American  patriotism and faith.  He said he had a
song that he had written in 1917, but never used it.  He said she  could have it.

Kate sat at the piano & played it and realized how good it was.  She called Mr. Berlin
and told him that she couldn't take this from him for nothing.  So, they agreed that
any money that would be  made off the song would be donated to the
Boy Scouts of America.  Thanks to Kate Smith and Irving Berlin, the  Scouts have
received millions of dollars in royalties.

This clip is from the movie "You're in the Army  Now".  You will see a familiar face in
this--one that we are all very proud of.  Frank Sinatra said that when Kate Smith,
whom he considered the greatest singer of his age, first sang this song on the radio,
a  million guys got 'dust' in their eyes and had  you wipe the tears the 'dust' caused.  
If you can watch and listen without 'dust' getting in your eyes, you have no soul.
Sit back and enjoy a Real Star.

Life Is Too Short

Life is just too short not to have fun with it.

One of the hardest actions that we can perform is to laugh or smile at our self. Allow yourself to smile at yourself. Before you open your mouth and say a four letter word or make a stupid remark which will only make yourself all stressed out, smile at yourself, shake your head and relax.

The following quotes are from Jonathon Lockwood Huie at Dance Lightly

"Play with life, laugh with life, dance lightly with life, and smile at the riddles of life, knowing that life’s only true lessons are writ small in the margin."

"Say NO to the demands of the world. Say YES to the longings of your own heart."

"There is a secret wisdom-of-the-ages that holds the key to breaking our cycle of self-imposed suffering. The secret wisdom is, "Life is not supposed to be fair."

"You don’t have the power to make life “fair,” but you do have the power to make life joyful."

"Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair." Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be. Demanding that life meet our expectations is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence. Life is a game with no rules. Life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions. Our only path to happiness lies in being open to receiving whatever life throws at us - with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life."
