Happiness is something we create in our mind,
It's not something we search for and so seldom find,
It's just waking up and beginning the day
by counting our blessings and kneeling to pray,
It's giving up thoughts that breed discontent
And accepting what comes as a gift heaven-sent,
It's giving up wishing for things we have not
And making the best of whatever we've got,
It's knowing that life is determined for us,
And pursuing our tasks without fret, fume or fuss,
For it's by completing what God gives us to do
That we find real contentment and happiness, too.

The Universal Prescription

No moving parts, no batteries.
No monthly payments and no fees;
Inflation proof, non-taxable,
In fact, it's quite relaxable;

It can't be stolen, won't pollute,
One size fits all, do not dilute.
It uses little energy,
But yields results enormously.

Relieves your tension and your stress,
Invigorate your happiness;
Combats depression, makes you beam,
And elevates your self esteem!

Your circulation it corrects
Without unpleasant side effects
It is, I think, the perfect drug:
May I prescribe, my friend - the hug!

And, of course, fully returnable!

Life is like a bouquet
And friendship like a flower
That blooms and grows in beauty
With the sunshine and the shower
And lovely are the blossoms
That are tended with great care
By those who work unselfishly
To make the place more fair.
And like the bouquet's blossoms
Friendships flower grows more sweet
When watched and tended carefully
By those we know and meet
And like sunshine adds new fragrance
And raindrops play their part,
Joy and sadness add new beauty
When there's friendship in the heart.
And if the seed of friendship
Is planted deep and true
And watched with understanding,
Friendships will bloom for you.
