Be a Blessing ..................

Be like a ray of sunshine breaking through the cloudy sky and every hopeful eye will look your way!

Give and it shall be given
Love and you'll find love
forgive and you shall be forgiven
And most of all, don't forget to spice up the world with a smile
Drive away the doom and gloom with a happy heart

Dear Cancer

Dear Cancer,



Leave Mary alone. You have already taken so much away from her.
