Have you ever read a poem that stimulates your emotions and memories? It happens quite often to me, and is the one reason I enjoy reading poems that speak about self-love, compassion, kindness, and gratitude. Whenever I’m having an off day, I’ll reach for a poem. In some ways it improves my mood, even if only momentarily. Here is one poem that I hope will bring you some joy, or at least a smile on your face as you read it.
"Never take life for granted. Savor every sunrise, because no one is promised tomorrow...or even the rest of today." - Eleanor Brown.

If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden."
- Frances Hodgson Burnett
