Say “Thank You” and Share the Love…

Quotes and Notes #226, June 25

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”—Khalil Gibran—

What a wonderful day this will be. It will be a good day to get in touch with friends and let them know that they are appreciated. Perhaps it is a day to thank friends—to thank them for just being a friend. It sure will make  feel good.

And share a smile with a stranger
Everything is going to be all right

Learn the Value of Silence…

Quotes and Notes #208, June 5

“I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strangely, I am ungrateful to those teachers.”—Khalil Gibran—

“Live and learn,” they say. Or, we could say, “Watch and learn.”
I have found it a good practice to never say anything bad about someone. Silence is much better in such a situation.
Silence with a smile speaks volumes

Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

Seeking silence is a good occupation.

Laugh at your fears

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”–Khalil Gibran

When I was a very small child, I ran to my mother crying and afraid in the middle of a thunderstorm. She said, “Don’t be afraid, it’s only thunder,” and she took me out on the front porch to watch the storm. We sat in the swing and when it thundered again, we slapped our legs and forced a laugh. When it thundered once again, we laughed, but the laugh was not forced, it was genuine. This I remember, sixty-six years later. Now, the thunder often comes in many disguises and I still slap my knee and laugh at it. Laughter is life’s greatest medicine and Man’s greatest weapon. Go out today and share a smile.

Everything is going to be all right
