As we have said many times in the past, the true draw of Cooperstown is its people, who bring such care and concern, not to mention support, to their friends and neighbors on a daily basis. And while we know full well how people step up to the plate in times of turmoil, we also know that Coopertonians can be depended on to offer much needed support and encouragement when it is least expected. For example, one simply never knows when one might receive an e-mail which passes on some simple facts on “The Positive Side of Life” from a fellow Cooperstonian. How could one not like receiving an e-mail that reads:
Living on earth is expensive, but it does include a free trip around the sun every year.
How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you’re on.
Birthdays are good for you; the more you have the longer you live.
Happiness comes through doors you didn’t know you left open.
If Wal-Mart is lowering prices every day, how come nothing is free yet?
You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
Don’t cry because it is over; smile because it happened.
We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and all are different colors....but they all exist very nicely in the same box.
A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
Have an aggressive day and know that someone who thinks you’re great has thought about you today! And that person was me.
Working for God on earth does not pay much, but His retirement plan is out of this world.
