For a Good Summer...

Mend a quarrel

Search out an old friend

Dismiss suspicion

Show your trust

Write a letter

Share some treasure

Give a soft answer

Encourage youth

Manifest your loyalty

Gladden the heart of a child

Keep a promise

Find the time

Forego a grudge

Forgive an enemy

Open your heart

Apologize if you were wrong

Try to understand

Appreciate, be kind, be gentle

Think first of someone else

 Root out envy

Laugh a little more

Do a good job

Deserve confidence

Reach out

Fight prejudice

Express gratitude

Don't give up

Take pleasure in the beauty of nature

Give thanks to God for all good things!

Therese, I love this post, such beautiful pictures and such words of wisdom. You have got my week off to a good start!

FrenchBlue said...

Amen! Beautiful inspiring post Teri! LOVE the images and what you say!!!

Hi Therese, did you know you are an angel? This post is something we all can benefit from. We all need those little reminders of being the good people we were made to be. This is such a beautiful tribute to what the human soul is capable of.

I am hoping graduation went very, very well? I've been thinking about you as we went through our celebrations. My eldest daughter was the last to fly home today. Trying not to think how much I am going to miss them all. I'm going to work on laughing a little more, & to write a letters. That and forgive a grudge as they are ugly. Hugs to you and all my wishes for a great week xxoo deb

Dear Therese,
This post is amazing the words and photos help drive home the many messages we all can be better and can use reminders now and again.

You have shown me, there is kindness in the face of strangers of those we may not ever meet in person. It must be the cosmos that Suzanne of Privet and Holly posted about today. Your encouragement and advice to re carve out a path of creating is one that I am both grateful and thankful for. Destiny?
