  1. Very true words, know one knows what another person is going through as we pass them by .


  2. Good advice for living the sweet life, so simple and true, yet so easy to forget in the fog of our own battles.

  3. so true joanny - everyone is fighting some battle and we all should be much nicer with each other..

  4. Walk a mile in my shoes? Good advice.

  5. I love the image of the pup with its mommy. : ) It is always savvy to be kind and considerate b/c being mean to others makes one feel bad in the end too.

  6. congrats on the awards joanny...may you day be al the sweeter...smiles.

  7. Beautiful, uplifting post. The quote was a delight. Congratulations on your poetry awards, they are well deserved :)

  8. Sweet sentiments we should all live by. Congrats on the awards.

  9. Love the awards, Joanny. And I think you're right. Kindness really is the best thing to show in all situations, I believe.
