Love the photo, Paul! Message is good, too... but incomplete... chocolate has amazing qualities to cheer one up! 😀

Good morning Paul. Mark Twain was a wise thinker. Hard to argue with him. A pet can help the process. Enjoy your day.

Paul, sometimes when I am not feeling the most cheerful, I do something around house, and try to stay off the phone.

Hi Paul- I love the quote but then again, I have always thought that Mark Twain offers amazing wisdom. When we focus on others, our plights seem so small. And yes Nina Hollander, Broker add chocolate to that and you can't help but smile.
