Thanks for the positive uplifting encouragement. I appreciate it. - Art

I just read this and thought your post was a good place to respond with:

Maya Angelou said this:

"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow."

"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights." [on tangled Xmas lights, I'm in deep dodo]

"I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life."

"I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as "making a life."

"I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance."

"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back."

I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision."

"I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one."

"I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.
People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back."

"I've learned that I still have a lot to learn."

And the best for last:

[On this plane]"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

You, Art, have always made me feel good about myself. You've made helpful comments here and there and sent caring emails. I consider you to be one of my bestest cyber friends [even my BF will say, "I bet Art would like this movie"]! I may not always comprehend/retain your beliefs, but like 1HF, it cost me nothing to read them. I'm also lucky that a handful of others also fit this description - 1HF, arrete, fleg, 2828, catmeyoo, luckydog, JB, ascemzm, prometheuss, Res, tmeri, IP and I know I forgetting a few.

PS Changed my mind and decided to make it solo.

Art's a good guy and was the first to welcome me to this board after I began posting here last year. I feel honored that you've associated me with the other posters listed above.

Thank you,

Mike

That's the thing about tngirl ... she has impeccable good taste to go with all that incredible charm. I often read this board by picking out a post or thread here or there based on the Subject, but I read most of the posts by a few folks and tngirl is among those along with several on her list.

I can not say that I read everything that Art posts since he is so prolific, but I do read him a lot and I feel exactly the same way about him. He makes me feel good about myself and about humanity. Thanks, Art!

Best Regards,
Prometheuss

I haven't done a lot of posting on this board because I'm at work and it moves too fast for me to keep up with in real time, but I can agree whole-heartedly with the above statement. My interactions with tngirl have been small, but my impression is that she is the classic "southern belle", smart, witty, and polite.

As for Art - he is "art".

"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights."

Another one I've heard that works:
You can always tell a person's true nature by how he or she treats hired help -- the kid who mows the lawn, the waitress, the clerk at DMV, etc.
