A thought....

                                 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.


  1. 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, Susie

  2. 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... :-) !

  3. That is a lovely thought. I will remember this today.

  4. It is what a try to do everyday. : )
    Sometimes just a smile can brightens someones day.

  5. I'm trying! I've got two of the grandkids, so I can say for sure... I'm busy!

  6. The sentiment of that little poem, is echoed in the words of Joseph Campbell; "Go happy through the sorrows of the world."

    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.

    Gentle hugs,
    (Who is still making discoveries, on this ding-dang-New-Blogger!)

  7. LOVE the poem Nellie. And I have missed you. Hope to get back to blogging again. I've been gone too long. Thanks for the upbeat message. Its perfect!! Luv ya girlfriend! N.
