Thoughts for today
• Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor the best opportunities; they will never come.
• No one means all they say, and very few say all they mean.
My own thoughts
• Do not put off until tomorrow, what you can do today.
• There is no wrong time to do the right thing.

Love can’t be bought,
It is priceless and free-
Love, like pure magic,
Is a sweet mystery.
Like roses in a garden,
Kindness fills the air
With a certain bit of sweetness
As it touches everywhere.
Life is a garden.
Good friends are the flowers,
And times spent together
Are life’s happiest hours.
When you do what you do
With a will and a smile
Everything that you do
Will seem twice as worthwhile.
Memories are priceless possessions
That time can never destroy,
For it is in happy remembrance
The heart finds its greatest joy.
You’ll find when you smile,
Your day will be brighter,
And all of your burdens
Will seem so much lighter.
We wouldn’t enjoy the sunshine
If we never had the rain.
We wouldn’t appreciate good health,
If we never had a pain.
