On This Day...



Mend a quarrel.

Search out a forgotten friend.

Dismiss suspicions, and replace them with trust.

Write a love letter.

Share some treasure.

Give a soft answer.

Encourage youth.

Manifest your loyalty in a word or deed.

Keep a promise.

Find the time.

Forego a grudge.

Forgive an enemy.

Listen.

Apologize if you were wrong.

Try to understand.

Flout envy.

Examine your demands on others.

Think first of someone else.

Appreciate, be kind, be gentle.

Laugh a little more.

Deserve confidence.

Take up arms against malice.

Decry complacency.

Express your gratitude.

Gladden the heart of a child.

Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.

Speak your love.

Speak it again.

Speak it still again.

Speak it still once again.

Someone mentioned to me earlier that they were having trouble accessing my blog due to an error message that keeps showing up every time they try to visit here(something along those lines anyway). It's only happening with my blog. Anyone else having trouble with that at all??
