This was sent to me by my Goddaughter Susie: As we grow up, we learn that the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will be heartbroken probably more than once and it’s harder every time. You’ll break hearts too, so remember, how it felt when yours was broken. You’ll fight with your best friend. You’ll blame a new love for things an old one did. You’ll cry because time is passing to fast, and you’ll eventually lose someone you love. So take many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you’ve never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you’ll never get back. Don’t be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.

I wrote about the issue involving the different Chambers of Commerce here in Moreno Valley and I had no idea it would stir up what it has. Moreno Valley has become a bedroom community and for that reason, has caused a lot of issues for those of us that live here. We should be aware of what is going on with the people we vote for. There is a recall being discussed and if this City does not wake up we will truly be going backward in many ways. Get involved if you want this place that we call home to get better. Some of us have fought a good fight, but we are getting a little older (smile) and we must turn it over to the younger people, (smile). We have always had to work at doing something to live a better life, it is no different today. Go to the council meetings or watch them on the television if you get channel 3. If you make that one step, then we can, as the late president John F. Kennedy once said, “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” The same is true for the city you live in. You must be a watchman on the wall. Let us all come together and care for and help each other for things must change.

Sometimes when I read Mr. Hardy Brown’s editorials it seems as though he is the watchman on the wall. He seems to gravitate to things we would never see. Thank you for being that watchman on the wall.

I want to leave you with this, Psalm 23 For The Work Place: The Lord is my real boss and I shall not want. He gives one peace, when chaos is all around me. He gently reminds me to pray and do all things without murmuring and complaining. He reminds me that he is my source and not my job. He restores my sanity everyday and guides my decisions that I might honor Him in all that I do. Even though I face absurd amounts of e-mails, system crashes, unrealistic deadlines, budget cutbacks, gossiping co–workers, discriminating supervisors and an aging body that doesn’t cooperate every morning, I still will not stop—for He is with me! His presence, His peace, and His power will see me through. He raises me up, even when they fail to promote me. He claims me as His own, even when the company threatens to let me go. His faithfulness and His love is better than any bonus check. His retirement beats any 401k there is. When it’s all said and done, I’ll be working for Him a whole lot longer and for that, I BLESS HIS NAME!
