Tall tales, myths, legends and a few facts about the Thornbury family

Take time to care…

on April 8, 2010

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

How did you do? The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name some people who have taught you something worthwhile.

The lesson:

The wealthy, the ones with the awards, the multiple degreed are in fact the one’s that usually do not take time to care for others. The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care. Let’s all take time to care, to build a legacy that will be around longer than we will!
