A list of ways
to make your life more pleasant,
I would say
eat mangoes,
stand tall,
pick apples,
read books,
buy flowers,
smell stew,
give presents,
give hugs,
bake cookies,
write letters,
pet puppies,
climb mountains,
wear sweaters,
hear music,
make friends,
use chopsticks,
go skiing,
hold babies,
fly kites,
watch clouds,
sing passionately,
breath deeply,
attend church,
eschew politics,
acquire patience,
ignore idiots,
pray daily,
cry unashamedly,
smile freely,
laugh lustily,
be truthful,
share knowledge,
ask questions,
take naps,
plan picnics,
kiss gently,
say thank you,
save keepsakes,
celebrate often,
love lots.

From the book, A Mother of Sons by Jayne Jaudon Ferrer
