A group of young ladies and a gentleman with whom I worked
In Abu Dhabi.
Each and every one, bringing lessons to me.
And now, the days in the desert land are
Save the lessons learned,
The intense love shared,
The laughter ringing through the American Dental Clinic
The patients, the parents,
And Team Wonderful
Sharing. Sharing. Learning. Growing. Loving.
Did you learn when you were young,
That if you work hard,
You can do it?
You can get what you want?
Is that because of the hard work?
Or is that because the hard work toward the goal
...keeps your thoughts focused on your heart’s desire?
Isn’t it funny?
One day we are lonely,
Then we have friends around us and forget we were lonely.
One day we are down.
Then we find joy and fun and upbeat days and forget we were down.
One day we are sad.
Then happiness appears and sadness is barely a memory.
What changes from the one day?
Your thoughts. Your thinking. Your connection to God!
