*** HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY ***

Hello  Dearest Peeps/Blogging Friends!  
I hope you're enjoying this beautiful extended Memorial Day weekend (for those of us in the USA)!!   
Sooo glad you stopped by today because I have a very special Message that I'd like to share with you. It's actually a beautiful Poem from a Renaissance ART Stamp that I used for my card below. 
It reads as follows:

Today,
Mend a Quarrel.
Seek out a Forgotten Friend.
Write a Love Letter.
Share some Treasure.
Give a Soft Answer.
Encourage Youth.
Keep a Promise.
Find the Time.
Forgive an Enemy.
Listen.
Apologize if you were Wrong.
Think first of Someone Else.
Be Kind and Gentle.
Laugh a Little. Laugh a little more.
Express your Gratitude.
Gladden the Heart of a Child.
Take Pleasure in the Beauty and Wonder of the Earth.
Speak your Love. Speak it Again. Speak it still, once again.
(the Author is Anonymous)


Arent these words of wisdom wonderful??
