  1. Hello Shawn,

    Wonderful quotes and I always enjoy reading them, I share them with family and friends.

    These are my favourite:

    I believe we can always make a difference by sharing the love in our heart. Someone always needs a hug or a smile, kind words to show you care; to touch a heart in despair. We have the power to change someone’s day by just one flower picked from a garden can light up their day. The gift of prayers can work miracles, it is indeed such a powerful gift that lives in our heart, we can make a difference in our own lives and those who need to share in our love. Be well and happy.

  2. I would like to thank you very much for posting these wonderful quotes and sending me the links every week. I hope you never stop. I am a fourth grade teacher in West Virginia, and I start every day by going to one of your wonderful pages and selecting a quote for the day which I then post on my door for all the staff and students to read. It has gotten to be such a habit that I hear about it if I neglect to change the quote, or forget to put one up. Keep up the good work. You are making a difference in my small corner of the world.

    Peace Out
