Unite to move forward. ~Hawaiian Proverb

Powerful quote and so very true.

Thanks for the bunny link! I sent it to my friend who volunteers at bunny rescue.
I met with a client yesterday and he had this quote near his doorway. I asked him to send it to me so I could share it with friends. Here it is :)

Promise Yourself

Promise yourself to be so strong

That nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity

To every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel

That there is something great in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything

And make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best,

To work only for the best

And expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic

About the success of others

As you are about your own.

To learn from the mistakes of the past

And press on to greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times

And give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvements of yourself

That you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry,

Too noble for anger,

Too strong for fear

And too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

: )

Great photo for the quote! One of the things my husband did before we got married was to teach me how to canoe. It was his little test to see how well we work together (he's very good at it- I'm not! LOL!) There were some frustrating moments, but over all it went really well. We're still together after almost 9 years of marriage, so perhaps the test worked- ha ha!

PS- no more computer problems today- thanks for your patience!!

brian- hey, thanks ;-]

polona- yes, it is powerful and good idea!

susan- right, left, right, left...

lp- that's funny. Happy you've passed the test of time, too. I used to kayak a lot, and look forward to getting back to it. Oh, no problem, I get peeved with blogger, too. It drives me crazy sometimes!

Peaceful and fun weekend to all!
