Greetings Rotarians,
It doesn’t seem possible that we begin our last full week of January. Where is the time going? This past week while working I was looking for a thought I could share with my team. I came across the thought, “Why Today Matters”, perhaps some of you will gain some perspective from it as I did.
"Today is not just any ordinary day. Today is a day that matters. Today you will have the choice to make a difference in your life and those around you. Today you will have the choice to smile rather than frown, be grateful rather than selfish, lift up rather than put down, accept rather than reject and love rather than hate. Today you will have the choice of seeking hope for the future or remain in the hopelessness of the past. Today you have the choice to laugh or cry. Both will make you feel better. Today you will have the undivided attention of the King of the Universe. At that time you can ask Him anything you want. You can ask for help, plead for a friend or just enjoy His presence. It all depends on you. Whichever you choose, today matters. Make the choice to make it a day worth living. And don't forget, tomorrow is another day."
May all of you have a great week. I shall be flying back to Cleveland on January 31st and look forward to seeing all of you at our Club Assembly meeting on Wednesday February 3rd.  
Dave Clements :-)
