Snap Happy And Happy

We must become the change we want to see in the world. Ghandi
If you want to be happy, be.  ~Leo Tolstoy


Happiness is never stopping to think if you are.  ~Palmer Sondreal

"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think.  Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.  ~A.A. Milne

This is my "depressed stance."  When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand.  The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better.  If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this.  ~Charlie Brown
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.
Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.
Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Your header!!!!!!!!!! You make so many great ones lately, but this may be my all time favorite!! This is now your specialty and worth the price of admittance alone!! I love everything about it, it looks like a movie or circus poster. AND what I love just as much is the Pooh quote, I have copied that and am going to put it on the church prayer line. Of course I love the flowers, too, but the quote and header. I actually could look at only a header from you and and would be happy!
