Hugging is Healthy                        

It relieves tension, Combats depression, Reduces stress, Improves blood circulation
It's rejuvenating, It's invigorating, It elevates self esteem, It generates goodwill
It has no unpleasant side effects, It is nothing less than a miracle drug!

The perfect cure for what ails you, No movable parts, No batteries to wear out
No periodic checkups, Low energy consumption, high energy yield
Inflation proof, no monthly payments, No insurance requirements,
Theft proof, Non-taxable, non-polluting, and of course, fully returnable.

Don't Quit                                                

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill        
When the funds are low, and the debts are high, and you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don't you quit!

Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns,
And maybe a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out
Don't give up though the pace seems slow, You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out, The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,                         And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far,             So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit, It's when things seem worse,            

That you must not quit.                                                                                    

The Circle of Friendship

The circle of friendship is
A place of warmth and caring
Where people come together
For listening and sharing.
Of tears and laughter too;
I'm glad to share that circle
With special friends like you. 

The 7 Lessons for Living Wisely

A joyful life begins with joyful thoughts
Boldly follow your life's mission
Success on the outside begins within
Cultivate self-discipline and act courageously
Time is your most important commodity
Nourish your relationships daily
Just for today, live life fully

- Robin S. Sharma


On this day--

Mend a quarrel
Search out a forgotten friend
Dismiss a suspicion and replace it with trust
Encourage someone who has lost faith
Keep a promise
Forget an old grudge
Examine your demands on others and vow to
reduce them
Fight for a principal
Express your gratitude
Overcome an old fear
Take two minutes to appreciate the beauty of nature
Tell someone you love them
Overcome an old fear
Tell someone you love them
Tell them again
And again
And again
