With Heartfelt Thanks

Submitted by Jodi Besthorn

Dear Friends,

Thank you all for the cards, calls, FB messages, and emails I received all this week and at my Retirement Celebration.  I was humbled by your words.  It's been my please to work with many fine extension agents, specialists, and office professionals.  You are among the smartest and most capable people around!  

I leave you with these words which i heard from a keynote speaker at Annual conference in the early 80's.... and it has stuck with me ever since.

Humor – be able to see the funny parts of life and don't take yourself too seriously
Hustle – work hard, plan well, put in the effort…… or as Coach Klieman says ....“Win the Dang Day”
Hang loose – don’t sweat the small stuff. Ask yourself will in matter in 5 minutes, 5 days, or 5 years ….. Focus on the big picture
And finally…
Humaneness – in other words – be a good human being and be kind to others
