{To Keep It....Give It Away}

If you speak about some person
A word of praise or two
Soon tens of other people
Will speak kind words of you
{Brian Tracy}

{thank you so much for all the bday wishes for Sydney
she read every single one of them and could not believe
your kindness}
...also big hugs to Kate today over at the garden bell
her kind words made my day very special... xoxoxo

Sometimes we forget to say those little words of kindness ~ they can turn a person's day right around can't they!

What a true statement....it takes work, but to make the effort to pass on goodness rather than negativity makes each day so sweet! HAPPY BDAY AGAIN TO SYDNEY!! Have a lovely day Koralee! Anita

A real good quote, I believe that what we give out comes back to us too :D

Everton Terrace said...

I think it's easy to speak words of kindness when your heart is full of joy and even if it isn't, speak words of kindness and perhaps it soon will be. You put out lots of joy Koralee.

I LIKE YOUR QUOTE, IT IS VERY TRUE, MORE PEOPLE SHOULD READ THIS. MOST PEOPLE ARE KIND, AND THOUGHTFUL, BUT THEN YOU HAVE THOSE FEW. I THINK BLOGGER PEOPLE ARE VERY KIND AND THOUGHTFUL, THEY HAVE A KIND HEART. RIZZI

Love this quote, and your wise words are great too. Lovely Syd is such a beauty! Do not need to see her eyes, can tell by the sweet softness this pretty picture shows. Hope you both have had a great time celebrating!

Your cherry binge DROVE me to buy a big bag of them yesterday, Koralee! And I thank you! :)

Even more important than saying nothing if you have nothing kind to say (my mother's old adage) is to remember to say nice things, loving things, supportive things. So often we forget.

The Garden Bell said...

Wow... Now my day has been made. A big shout out of cheer and cartwheels going on in my garden this afternoon. You are the sweetest to have a linkie over to my side of the world. I have always enjoyed each moment of color and creativity I find here in your bluebirdie notes. You inspired me to think out of the box when I have my camera in hand.

Big Hugs back with a little squeeze on top,
Kate - The Garden Bell

Amanda said...

Koralee, you are such a wise and kind girl! As my mother would say, if you can't say something nice, then don't say it!

Privet and Holly said...

So TRUE. I am a BIG believer in positivity in words and deeds. It is so much harder to be mean than to be kind....I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't want to be NICE!!! So glad your sweet girl had a wonderful celebration!
xx Suzanne

It's a nice reminder to be kind. Not buying into gossip is a trait that would do many of us well also. Thank-you for the reminder.
