Employed

“A mind always employed

is always happy.

This is the true secret,

the grand recipe,

for felicity.”

.

~ Thomas Jefferson

.

Felicity: Intense happiness.

Always make sure the brain is engaged

before the mouth is opened.

Think about doing the will of a loving Higher Power;

be kind, be loving, be patient, be tolerant,

be forgiving, be compassionate.

Think about making this world a

better place for all.

Today, use your head for more than just a hat rack,

think hard and then remember to act.

Happiness is a mind that is always engaged.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

A Benevolent Arrangement

003

.

“But friendship is precious,

not only in the shade,

but in the sunshine of life;

and thanks to a benevolent

arrangement of things,

the greater part of life

is sunshine.”

.

~ Thomas Jefferson

Unless you are Joe Btfsplk, who lives under a cloud,

most days are usually nothing to complain about.

Excluding the big event days, the tragic days or maybe

some of the days that we would rather forget,

but including all of the days we missed

because we were not grateful enough

to count the rays of grace

that a loving Higher Power shines upon us,

for now, forget the past, be a benevolent friend

and share todays sunshine.

Friendship is being a friend come rain or shine.

Friendship is a priceless gem

that is to be valued and protected.
