Keep us, oh God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding and leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face, without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous.
Let us take time for all things; make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straightforward and unafraid. Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences, that in the big things of life we are at one.
And may we strive to touch and to know the great, common human heart of us all. And, oh Lord God, let us forget not to be kind!
The Woman's Club of Cranbury--what thoughts and memories float through my mind when I say those words--words that have infinite meaning!
I picture friends, friendships begun in and nurtured by the Woman's Club, friends with whom we have laughed, chatted, planned, worked, sympathized, dreamed, and had fun with!
I am touched when I realize the many Cranbury young people who have furthered their education, thanks to our scholarships, and now those scholarships are also enabling women to pursue interrupted studies.
I picture the Cranburyites and visitors whose hearts have been lifted by the beauty of the flowers and greens regularly planted in the barrels--barrels placed around town many years ago by the Woman's Club.
I am gratified when I review the little and big blessings performed for the sick, the needy, the elderly, and the military.
I am impressed by the personal growth many have experienced as they have found themselves in leadership positions.
I smile when I observe the happy celebration at the annual Christmas tree lighting.
I am thrilled when I enumerate the many, many books--serious, entertaining, and international--that have been read and then discussed in a group.
I sense the personal warmth we have felt as together we have been entertained and informed at both our general and department meetings!
And my mind reverts to the Cranbury Reading Group, formed over 100 years ago, and its evolving into this segment of a national organization that has made a vital contribution to our country--The General Federation of Women's Clubs. What a privilege to be part of it!
