Sr. John Says:

It’s time for giving thanks. It’s time for giving. It’s time for sharing. What a wonderful time of the year.

We don’t often think about how lucky we are. We are blessed in so many ways. Our University is built on service, and we are known for serving the community. I have found that our students who serve others are happier students and are more fulfilled.

Someone gave this to me years ago, and I did try to find the author, unsuccessfully.

“Lessons From Any Court”

 1.     People play better when they are encouraged.

2.     When two or more people occupy a small space, they should learn to share.

3.     The only way to get better is to practice.

4.     Pay attention.

5.     There are always people who will do better than you.

6.     Attitude really is everything.

7.     Losses are lessons.

8.     It isn’t over until the last point is scored.

9.     Work can be fun, but fun should never become merely work.

10.   The only way to serve is to score.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
