Live simply. Love seriously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
Leave the rest !
When I was in grade school, they told me to write down what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote down happy.
They told me I didn’t understand the assignment,
I told them they didn’t understand life.
A giggle is a smile that tickles
A laugh is a smile that bursts
Laughter is God’s sunshine
Take time to laugh for it is the music of the soul
