|To Dare Is To Do|
I would also add, going the extra mile to the list of "must haves."
I recently conducted a Celebration of Life for a lovely man who was an avid and lifelong supporter of Spurs. I searched the internet for a suitable poem to reflect his passion and discovered that the Tottenham team has a resident poet. What a wonderful surprise!
I contacted the Spurs Poet and asked him to recommend one of his poems that would be most suitable for the occasion. He kindly offered to write a poem, specially for the man whose life we were celebrating, and he did a fantastic job.
The kind gesture meant the world to the man's family and took the edge off a very difficult day. They will treasure the poem always. Here is one of the verses that superbly captures the man's devotion to his beloved football team and his character.
He would not want you to be upset today
Not like if you called him during a game
Nothing worse than the mobile phone buzzing
When you are settled watching your star Harry Kane.
|Swell day for a vintage wedding|
I spiced up the ceremony by writing one section using words from bygone days.
It turned out to be a "swell" idea and the newly weds, as well as the guests, loved the jazzy twist.
So, going the extra mile can mean the difference between a good ceremony and a really "nifty" one!
