The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.
Mark Twain

I won't forget an example of this. I was taking my oldest DD to college for the orientation meeting. On the way we had a serious talk about some of her fears and concerns. She was feeling unsure of herself and her future. When we go there and got out of the car she looked over at another girl, also looking a little uncomfortable, getting out of the car next to ours and DD immediately started an enthusiastic conversation. I was totally surprised by the fact that two happy girls went into the first meeting. I was so proud of her and how in her own way she made it a good day for both of them.

Eliminate the word 'agencies' in the last post. I'm using a notepad with an auto correct feature that apparently has a mind of its own!
You may also have noticed it changed Marly's name to Madly in a former post, not MY fault!

I found a fun little book at a library used book sale, "A Bowl of Cherries..looking at life through homespun homilies".
I'll be sharing some here, many contain such wisdom.
It is inspiring me to do some cross stitched gifts!
