Sometimes a story comes along (although I doubt it's true) I just have to share.😭 My name was not intentionally added to the story.

I was at the corner grocery store buying some early potatoes... I noticed a small boy, delicate of bone and feature, ragged but clean, hungrily apprising a basket of freshly picked green peas.
;
I paid for my potatoes but was also drawn to the display of fresh green peas.
I am a pushover for creamed peas and new potatoes.
;
Pondering the peas, I couldn't help overhearing the conversation between Mr. Miller (the store owner) and the ragged boy next to me.
;
'Hello Barry, how are you today?'
;
'H'lo, Mr. Miller. Fine, thank ya. Jus' admirin' them peas. They sure look good'
;
'They are good, Barry. How's your Ma?'
'Fine. Gittin' stronger alla' time.'
'Good. Anything I can help you with?'
'No, Sir. Jus' admirin' them peas.'
'Would you like to take some home?' asked Mr. Miller.
;
'No, Sir. Got nuthin' to pay for 'em with.'
;
'Well, what have you to trade me for some of those peas?'
;
'All I got's my prize marble here.'
;
'Is that right? Let me see it', said Miller.
;
'Here 'tis. She's a dandy.'
;
'I can see that. Hmmm, only thing is this one is blue and I sort of go for red.
Do you have a red one like this at home?' the store owner asked.
;
'Not zackley but almost.'
;
'Tell you what. Take this sack of peas home with you and next trip this way let me look at that red marble'. Mr. Miller told the boy.
;
'Sure will. Thanks Mr. Miller.'
;
Mrs. Miller, who had been standing nearby, came over to help me.
;
With a smile she said, 'There are two other boys like him in our community, all three are in very poor circumstances. Jim just loves to bargain with them for peas, apples, tomatoes, or whatever.
;
When they come back with their red marbles, and they always do, he decides he doesn't like red after all and he sends them home with a bag of produce for a green marble or an orange one, when they come on their next trip to the store.'
;
I left the store smiling to myself, impressed with this man. A short time later I moved to Colorado,
but I never forgot the story of this man, the boys, and their bartering for marbles.
;

Several years went by, each more rapid than the previous one. Just recently I had occasion to visit some old friends in that Idaho community and while I was there learned that Mr. Miller had died. They were having his visitation that evening and knowing my friends wanted to go, I agreed to accompany them. Upon arrival at the mortuary we fell into line to meet the relatives of the deceased and to offer whatever words of comfort we could.

Ahead of us in line were three young men. One was in an army uniform and the other two wore nice haircuts, dark suits and white shirts...all very professional looking. They approached Mrs. Miller,
standing composed and smiling by her husband's casket.
;
Each of the young men hugged her, kissed her on the cheek, spoke briefly with her
and moved on to the casket. Her misty light blue eyes followed them as, one by one;
each young man stopped briefly and placed his own warm hand over the cold pale hand in the casket.
Each left the mortuary awkwardly, wiping his eyes.
;
Our turn came to meet Mrs. Miller. I told her who I was and reminded her of the story
from those many years ago and what she had told me about her husband's bartering for marbles.
With her eyes glistening, she took my hand and led me to the casket.
;
'Those three young men who just left were the boys I told you about.
;
They just told me how they appreciated the things Jim 'traded' them. Now, at last, when Jim could not change his mind about color or size....they came to pay their debt.'
;
'We've never had a great deal of the wealth of this world,' she confided, 'but right now,
Jim would consider himself the richest man in Idaho ...'
;
With loving gentleness she lifted the lifeless fingers of her deceased husband.
Resting underneath were three exquisitely shined red marbles.
;
The Moral:
We will not be remembered by our words, but by our kind deeds.
Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath.


Today I wish you a day of ordinary miracles ~ A fresh pot of coffee you didn't make yourself...
;
An unexpected phone call from an old friend.... Green stoplights on your way to work....
;
The fastest line at the grocery store....
;
A good sing-along song on the radio...
;
Your keys found right where you left them.
;

If you don't send it to anyone, it means you are in way too much of a hurry to even notice the ordinary miracles when they occur.

I know you'll have a few marbles to take with you when the time comes.

SPECIAL NOTICE

Please don’t be fooled by imitators of the Professional Golf Teachers Association of America. It has come to our attention that several other organizations are attempting to hijack our reputation, our certification designations, mimic our unique programs, especially our Home Study module, and in some cases, leverage even our name as their own. The name “Professional Golf Teachers Association of the United States”, formerly operated by National Golf Schools has ceased to exist after a settlement was reached between the parties.

The Professional Golf Teachers Association of America is and always will be the foremost 100% professional golf teaching certification institute in the world.

While these other programs and teaching organizations direct their marketing materials and resources to the targeting of all applicants (to cover their extensive advertising and marketing costs), whether qualified or not, the PGTAA’s philosophy and target market is that individual/golfer who desires to be a teaching professional in the field and not just an enthusiast. Since 1997 our mandatory personal telephone interview helps the PGTAA maintain their high level of members appreciated by all in the golf industry .

We do not offer various levels of certifications designed to separate you from your money and whose “membership/certification/levels of instructor” cards are useless and of zero value in the golf industry.

When comparing the PGTAA to ANY other teaching institution, whether PGA, LPGA or USGTF, our cost to become a fully certified golf teaching professional is $995.00 via the Home Study module or $2495.00 via the On-Site module. Going through the certification programs of the aforementioned organizations will cost you in excess of $5,000.00!

Most importantly, the PGTAA is 100% all about teaching.

The PGTAA has over 50 Tour players including Master’s, PGA and US Open Champions, who avail themselves of our members teaching expertise.

There is only one Professional Golf Teachers Association of America, and you can always find us at www.PGTAA.com.
