Life has taught me that respect, caring and love must be shared.

For it’s only through sharing that friendships are born.

I will no longer allow the negative things in my life spoil all of the good I have, I choose to be happy.

A positive attitude today will enhance the value of every experience, that choice is open to you and me alike.

True giving comes from the heart and soul in the form of pure intentions, energy, vibrations and selfless and unconditional love.

Have a beautiful day, & make it On Purpose!
