    <TT>Hi friends,</TT></PRE>
    <TT>A group of graduates, highly established in their</TT></PRE>
    <TT>careers, got together to visit their old university professor.</TT></PRE>
    <TT>Conversation </TT><TT>soon turned into complaints about stress in work and</TT></PRE>
    <TT>life.</TT><TT>Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the</TT></PRE>
    <TT>kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of</TT></PRE>
    <TT>cups - porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some</TT></PRE>
    <TT>expensive, some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to the</TT></PRE>
    <TT> </TT></PRE>
    <TT>When all the students had a cup of coffee, the professor</TT></PRE>
    <TT>said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken</TT></PRE>
    <TT>up, leaving behind the simple and cheap ones. While it is normal for</TT></PRE>
    <TT>you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your</TT></PRE>
    <TT>problems and stress. Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to</TT></PRE>
    <TT>the coffee. In most cases, it is just more expensive and in some cases</TT></PRE>
    <TT>even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not</TT></PRE>
    <TT>the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups... Then you began</TT></PRE>
    <TT>eyeing each other's cups. Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the</TT></PRE>
    <TT>jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools </TT></PRE>
    <TT>to </TT><TT>hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor</TT></PRE>
    <TT>change the quality of Life we live. Sometimes, by concentrating on the</TT></PRE>
    <TT>cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us. Enjoy your</TT></PRE>
    <TT> </TT></PRE>
    <TT>The happiest people don't have the best of everything.</TT></PRE>
    <TT>They just make the best of everything."</TT></PRE>
    <TT> </TT></PRE>
    <TT>Live simply.</TT></PRE>
    <TT> </TT></PRE>
    <TT>Love generously.</TT></PRE>
    <TT>Care deeply.</TT></PRE>
    <TT> </TT></PRE>
    <TT>Speak kindly.</TT></PRE>
    <TT>Leave the rest to God.</TT></PRE>
    <TT>You are the miracle, my friend;</TT></PRE>
    <TT>Your life either shines a light OR casts a shadow!</TT></PRE>
    <TT>Shine a light & Enjoy the Coffee!!!</TT></PRE>
    <TT></TT> </PRE>
