We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

12 tips

1.  It costs nothing to smile and say thank you.

2.  Commenting and complaining ARE the same thing.  Be wise with the words you choose.

3.  I learned a long time ago that the smartest person I know gave birth to me.  Thanks, Mom. 

4.  Be nice.  Nobody cares how smart you are if you aren't a nice person.

5.  If you make a mess (um...BP), clean it up.

6.  Doing the right thing is the hardest thing to ever do right.

7.  Honesty is the best policy.  (But see #2 and #4.)

8.  Sometimes no matter what, life simply isn't fair. 

9.  Trust your instincts.  If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. 

10.  Forgive. 

11.  Go to church. 

12.  Find your joy and live it.  Just sayin'.

So true. I love your blog, it always makes me smile.

Your own soul is nourished when you are kind, but you destroy yourself when you are cruel. -Proverbs 11: 17
