Spreading Love


"Spread love everywhere you go . . . let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier." ~Mother Teresa

That woman really knew what she was talking about, didn't she? As soon as I read this, I knew it was something that I wanted to make a conscious effort towards.

I want people to leave my presence uplifted, smiling and feeling great about themselves. A good goal, no?

** I know the picture doesn't go with the quote -- I had the quote all ready to go with another picture and then started getting lots and lots of birthday wishes [which was a lovely surprise!]. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful birthday greetings. I wondered how so many people knew.

Hardly anyone is as lucky as I am to have such a lovely daughter!

I love the thought...and I need to save that cartoon. I think it's a cartoon of me. Really. I actually announced that it was only seven months until my next birthday the other day. I have problems.

Where do you get all of your fabulous quotes?
