Chapter 6, Page 11, Book 14

Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you.

Langston Hughes

Brighten your day…Life is short, live JOYFULLY!

Summertime and the livin’ is easy…

We don't often realize that rejoicing can release so much power, just as simple as smiling and laughing, having a good time, and enjoying ourselves. And doing that in itself often makes our problems go away!  Joy is in our spirit. What we need to do is learn how to release it.

Joy is a flower that blooms when you do.

When you do something just for the joy of it you are not worried about what you get in return, nor do you do it because you should or have to. You do it because you want to.  And remember that when you experience joy, others around you feel it too!

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. 

Frederick Keonig

How true that is. A life is changed by a smile at the right time. SO we should always be ready to share a life changing action, that costs nothing and also gives us joy.


I love Langston Hughes. That was a wonderful quote.
