“When you’re young, you say what you feel.
When you’re adult, you speak what you think
When you grow old, you listen to what nature says.”—Toba Beta—

The walls of the old Euharlee mill still stand on the side of the river. I look at it and wonder about the people who needed it, conceived it, constructed it, and used it. I think of the stories and laughter that they shared as they worked at feeding a part of their world.

Will stories and laughter be a part of your legacy?
Wouldn’t that be wonderful?

Share a lot of smiles
Share a lot of laughter
Everything is going to be all right

Sunshine, Smiles, and Flowers

Quotes and Notes #141, March 25

“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but good trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.”–Joseph Addison

I had a friend named Leon. I always looked forward to seeing him because he always shared a smile with me. I knew that he had endured a lot of hardships and that he had lost his wife to cancer, but he always had a smile for me. Leon died a few years ago.

Leon lives on in my mind, though. I can still picture him walking down 4th Avenue with his shoulders back and a big smile on his face.

I hope that I will be remembered like that—What a legacy.

Spread some sunshine…It’s easy

Everything is going to be all right
