[Sunday Soul Food] Outlook

Just for today… let these words from Priscilla Leonard soothe your soul and uplift your Spirit. It is my intention that, through these words,  you see yourself as the magnificent being that you are.
Forget each kindness that you do As soon as you have done it. Forget the praise that falls to you The moment you have won it. Forget the slander that you hear Before you can repeat it. Forget each slight, each spite, each sheer Wherever you may meet it. Remember every kindness done To you, whate’er its measure. Remember praise by others won And pass it on with pleasure. Remember every promise made And keep it to the letter. Remember those who lend you aid And be a grateful debtor. Remember all the happiness That comes your way in living. Forget each worry and distress; Be hopeful and forgiving. Remember good, remember truth, Remember Heaven’s above you, And you will find, through age and youth, True joys and hearts to love you.
