More about SHARE

You would think I would get tired of telling how good it is where I work, but I just keep finding more good things towrite about. Today I was involved with the Resource Development Planning Committee.  We had an excellent meeting with a committee formed by eight people from different areas of our organization.  We were all interested in finding ways we could reach out into the community to help, and finding ways the community can interact with us.  We discussed fund raising activities also.  We were all in agreement that the first thing we need to do is have our website updated so any possible corporate sponsors doing research on SHARE would come away with a good impression.  The current website has not been updated in at least six months!

Folks are starting to leave the building early after a miserable wet, cold, blustery day. Too bad we couldn't get some real snow before Christmas!

Happy Holidays at our house!

For the first time in seveeral years we are truly happy at our house during the Holiday Season. We have so much for which we are very grateful.  B has been doing well in school, and in her Phlebotomy classes. She has been scheduled for her clinical trials at the Patewood campus of Greenville Hospital System.  Next step, she will actually have a job after four years of no work! Hooray for B!  Hooray for me too!  I am now very happily employed at a job I really love at SHARE.  I am enjoying working at a Community Action Program that cares about helping the poor better their situations.  It has saved us from the depts of despair and depression. God has carried us through the hard times to make us more able to appreciate the things that He does for us. after all, He gave us His Son! That's why we HAVE the Holidays!

Motivational Poems, Inspirational Words of Wisdom:
"One of our favorite motivational poems:

The Victor
Poet: C.W. Longenecker

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t

If you like to win but think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win the prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can."
