Just being happy helps other souls along;
Their burdens may be heavy
and they not strong;
And your own sky will lighten,
If other skies you brighten
By just being happy with a heart full of song.
- Ripley D. Saunders
Spread some sunshine today!
I want to thank all of my followers. I recognize that there are new ones. I truly enjoy your comments.
Nellie, I worked with a girl who always seemed happy..I ask if she was all the time. She said "no, but if I act like I am , it helps me to become happy." I have never forgotten her. So smiles to all, SusieReplyDelete
Love this early morning thought! I hope your day will be filled with joy and peace! I have always appreciated the thought that, if we see someone without a smile, we should give them one of ours! Here's one for you from me... :-) !ReplyDelete
That is a lovely thought. I will remember this today.ReplyDelete
It is what a try to do everyday. : )ReplyDelete
Sometimes just a smile can brightens someones day.
I'm trying! I've got two of the grandkids, so I can say for sure... I'm busy!ReplyDelete
The sentiment of that little poem, is echoed in the words of Joseph Campbell; "Go happy through the sorrows of the world."ReplyDelete
What he meant was... The world is a mess. It always was and always will be... But we need not stay bogged down in the sorrows and mess. We might better concentrate on how we can make our selves, more as we choose.
Or something like that! I don't easily paraphrase, a brilliant man like him.
