Kindness is its own reward.
Thank you Barbara XXXXl - For anyone who may have a need...Did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the one who takes care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most?
Did you know the 3 hardest things to say are:
I love you, I'm sorry, and Help me.
Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile and see how much pain they may be in. To all my friends who are going through some issues right now---
Let's start an intention avalanche. We all
need positive intentions right now. If I don't see your name, I'll understand.
May I ask my friends wherever you might be, to kindly copy and paste this
status for one hour to give a moment of support to all those who have family
problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to
know that someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune.
I hope to see this on the walls of all my friends just for moral support. I know some will!! I did it for a friend and you can too. You have to copy & paste this one, no share button, please.

Do all the good you can!
“Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
in all the ways you can,
to all the people you can,
in all the places you can,
as long as you can.”
St. Ignatius of Loyola Prayer
teach me to be generous.
teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost;
to fight, and not to heed the wounds;
to labor, and not to seek to rest;
to give of myself and not to ask for reward,
except the reward of knowing that I am doing
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered:
We will forgive them anyway.
If we are kind, people may accuse us of selfish ulterior motives.
We will be kind anyway.
What we spend years building, someone could destroy overnight.
We will build anyway.
The good we do today, people will often forget tomorrow.
We will do good anyway.
If we give the world the best we have, it may never be enough.
We will give the world the best we have anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between us and God;
it is never between us and them anyway.
(Adapted from a prayer inscribed on the wall of Mother Teresa’s
Children’s Home in Calcutta.)

The Body of Christ
Christ has no body now on earth but ours.
Ours are the only hands which he can do his work.
Ours are the only feet
with which he can go about in the world.
Christ has no body on earth but ours.
(Adapted from a Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila)

It is from John Rainone's 1/5/14 Facebook posting that I got the inspiration for this page.
The Charles Schulz Philosophy:
The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator
of the 'Peanuts' comic strip.
You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just ponder on
them. Just read the questions straight through, and you'll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
4 Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?
The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.
These are no second-rate achievers.
They are the best in their fields.
But the applause dies.
Achievements are forgotten.
Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.
Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the
most credentials, the most money...or the most awards.
They simply are the ones who care the most.
Pass this on to those people who have either made a difference in your life, or whom you keep close in your heart, like I did.
