Here's a beautiful poem that I'm sure all of you would
appreciate and apply in your life!

With Love,

Living and Giving

Whatever you give away today
Or think or say or do
Will multiply about tenfold
And then returned to you.
It may not come immediately
Nor from the obvious source
But the Law applies unfailingly
Through some invisible force.

Whatever you feel about another,
Be it love or hate or passion,
Will surely bounce right back to you
In some clear (or secret) fashion.
If you speak about some person
A word of praise or two,
Soon, tens of other people
Will speak kind words of you.

Our thoughts are broadcasts of the soul,
Not secrets of the brain.
Kind ones bring us happiness;
Petty ones, untold pain.
Giving works as surely as
Reflections in a mirror.
If hate you send, hate you'll get back
But loving brings love nearer.

Remember, as you start this day
And duty crowds your mind,
That kindness comes so quickly back
To those who first are kind.
Let that thought and this one
Direct us through each day...
The only things we ever keep
Are the things we give away.
