We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
Life is a promise; fulfill it. – Mother Teresa
Generosity begins with our recognition of our debt to others.
A person’s true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. Mohammed

When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.
Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another’s pain, life is not in vain. – Helen Keller
Seek to do good, and you will find that happiness will run after you.
Kindness is like sugar, It makes life taste a little sweeter.

Life is a food bowl jumble how do we begin?
kindness and hope might be a good start
like a fragrant flower, a ripe white peach
blessings flow from each
next a piece of belief and gratitude
fits so nice side by side
in the compote dish
sweetness daily we remind
I waver between what comes from the heart
I’ll pour a bowl of goodness
sprinkled with unpretentious love
in the lives of others do not be remiss
look down the road
but never too far
a hand full of willing
children, reach close to the stars
work each days tapestry
as if its your last
give deep down to the needy
never be greedy
there’s much food for thought
today I’ve tasted a little
pass a morsel to another
never be hard like peanut brittle
