THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2017: T IS FOR...........

 THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2017:
MY THEME IS YEAR IS RYHTHM AND RHYME:
Which consists of a song and a poem:
HOPE YOU ENJOY:
is for TRY A LITTLE KINDNESS
by
GLEN CAMPBELL:
I recently been reading a book
Entitled "I Can Make You Happy"
It's by the self help writer Paul McKenna,
I picked it up at the bookshop quite snappy.

It's a wonderful book
I have you know.
He has written a quote,
To you I'll show.

"If you want to be happy for a hour......take a nap.
If you want to be happy for a week.....take a vacation.
If you want to be happy for a year........win the lottery.
If you want to be happy for life.......Be KIND TO SOMEONE.
END OF QUOTE

The song says it all,
It's one I've always loved.
As sure as there are stars
In the Heavens above.

I was saddened to learn
Of Glen Campbell being so unwell.
He, through his music,
Have touched the hearts of millions.
THAT i CAN TELL.

  1. Serious shortage of kindness right at the moment in this world of ours. BUT the supplies will be in sometime, hopefully soon. Thumbs up for the guitar, and the song.

  9. If you want to be happy for life
    .......Be KIND TO SOMEONE

    Being kind to someone or everyone is always encouraged. The beauty of it is that it has a way of returning back the favor. Kindness bestowed unto oneself at other times would be very much frequent than otherwise!
