Think


Think love, not hate.
Think success, not failure.
Think health, not disease.
Think good, not evil.
Think prosperity, not poverty.
Think safety, not danger.
Think life, not death.
Think friendship, not hostility.
Think joy, not sorrow.
Think hope, not despair.
Think tranquility, not tension.
Look forward, not backward.

Wonderful guideline to living!
It is all in the way we/I "think."
Thank You Vicci for the lovely post. And it will just do that! Make me think!

P.S. When I am over your way, I will definately let you know! I wouldn't miss seeing you!

You too! If you are this way, I know that you have friends that live here. We should all get together!
Oh! That would be wonderful!

I love Madrone trees. Did you know that you can take a large piece of the bark, carefully write a letter on it without cracking it, then soak it in oil and fold it up and send it off?

(security word: nellaok) you know anyone named nell??
