It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 9, Page 12, Book 13

Love one another and you will be happy. It's as simple and as difficult as that. 

 Michael Leunig

Cartoons are simple and interesting, and can teach us a lot about life. Looking back, it turns out we learned quite a few valuable lessons from some of our favorite cartoon characters

One good example is the character Charlie Brown.  He sticks up for the little guy, puts up with Snoopy’s tricks, doesn’t try to take Linus’ blanket away like Lucy does, and picks the meekest of Christmas trees. His life reflects love. And in the end, the entire Peanuts gang tells us  what love is. It’s walking hand in hand, visiting a sick friend, meeting someone by the pencil sharpener, and loaning your best comic books.

Love is an action that brings people into relationship. Love is an act of kindness toward everyone. 

I'm thankful for people in my life that I can say I love you to, and another day to do it all over again.

Love puts the fun in together, the sad in apart, and the joy in a heart.

There is a lot of wisdom in cartoons, indeed, especially the Peanut ones; who cannot help but love Charlie Brown.

Without love, our lives would be so terribly hard I think.



I miss Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang.

You are so right - love is so easy and so hard.
