Summer Savoury...

A long number of summers ago, I came across these wise words printed on the cover of a wedding bulletin.  They are well worth savouring by any of us who are caring for others:

In this special moment of life...

Think freely.    Practice patience.    Smile often.

Savour special moments.  Live love's message.  Make new friends.  Rediscover old ones.  Tell those you love that you do.  FEEL DEEPLY.  Forget trouble.  Forgive an enemy.    HOPE.  
G   R   O   W.

Be crazy.    Count your blessings.    Observe miracles.  Make them happen.   Discard worry.     Give.  Give in.    Trust enough to take.

Pick some flowers.    Share them.      Keep a promise.    Look for rainbows.
Gaze at stars.    See beauty everywhere. . .

Work hard.    Be wise.    Try to understand.    Take time for people.    Make time for yourself.        LAUGH HEARTILY.        Spread joy.       Take a chance.    
R E A C H  O U T.     Let someone in.      

Try something new.     S   L   O   W    down.     Be soft sometimes.    

Believe in yourself.    Trust others.    See a sunrise.   Listen to rain.    Reminisce.    Cry when you need to.    TRY LIFE.     Have faith.     Enjoy wonder.    Comfort a friend.
Have good ideas.    Make some mistakes.      Learn from them.

. . .  CELEBRATE LIFE!
