Drop a pebble in the water,
And its ripples reach out far;
And the sunbeams dancing on them
May reflect them to a star.
Give a smile to someone passing,
Thereby making his morning glad;
It may greet you in the evening
When your own heart may be sad.
Do a deed of simple kindness;
Though its end you may not see,
It may reach, like widening ripples,
Down a long eternity. Joseph Norris
Hey! Debra from She Who Seeks chose my name as one of whose who will "Pay It Forward". Have you heard of this? (I hadn't but then, I don't know too much, as you all know.) Anyway, where was I before I was dissing myself? Oh yes, here is how this works: leave a comment here, and I will choose 3 names. Those three will receive a card from ME with three gifts, three little things that I will mail to those who are chosen. (Don't be shy, I could mail this anywhere in this big old world!) Now, wouldn't it be nice to receive a sweet greeting card with three little prezzies inside?
Debra sent me a card with a fat cat wearing 3D classes and inside, an Edmonton Oilers bookmark and two other cards that I will also use as bookmarks. ("Be not fearful in unlocking the door and listening to the voice of your heart". Nice advice, I will try to follow it.) Thanks, Debra!
So, what do you say...those who are chosen are then asked to choose three names and do the same thing for those three, and so on and so....you get the picture, right, like ripples in a pond? Of course, you know I have to give you a photo from the top of Arabia Mountain!
If you decide to try for it, good luck to you!
How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a weary world. William Shakespeare
y'all so much, I have another rose for you. (An English rose this time, photo taken at Auntie Doreen's house in May of last year.)
Wait, I have another flower for you...this American azalea wants to share the spotlight too...this azalea is from my own yard! (Taken April 13th of this year.) Remember, keep an eye out for beauty, always!
