OCTOBER 2014 - A Thirty Second Quiz! by Christy Noble

October 21, 2014 11:15 AM | Linda Wilson (Administrator)

Don't bother getting a pen and paper...just read...if you can't answer one, go on to the next.

1. Name the 5 wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last 5 Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last 5 winners of the Miss America contest.

4. Name 5 people who have won the Nobel Peace prize.

5. Name the last 5 Academy Award winners for Best Actor and Best Actress. 

How did you do? The point is, none  of us remembers the headliners of yesterday.  These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields.  But, the applause dies quickly.  Awards tarnish.Achievements are soon forgotten.  Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners. 

Now, take the second half of the quiz.  See how you do…

1. Name 3 teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name 3 friends who helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name 3 people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Name a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of the people you enjoy spending time with. 

Was that easier? What is the lesson? 

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. 

They are the ones that care. 

At our next Luncheon, take a look at who is sitting next to you, or across from you. 

They are the ones that care. 

Remember, we have joined a group of ladies and we are here to care for one another through life's journey.We are daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, grandmothers.

We share a special thread, a special bond.

We are here for one another.

We are all special!
