That's my practice too.  I prefer to believe the best in people. . .Until they give me reason to believe otherwise!

There aren't many things more enjoyable than watching a child play on the beach with the view of the ocean and sunshine.

Good morning Paul. Unlike Mark Twain I have met people I don't like and people who have no "best" to like! It too, save trouble! Enjoy your day.

Hi Paul- I have been accused of trying to find the good in everyone but it’s what works for me. On occasion I have had to just make something up!

Hi Paul,
Happy Sunday! It's not usually too hard to find the good in people. Some people do make it more difficult than others, though.  LOL

Oh, I'm so in agreement with you on that, Paul! I'm a silver lining gal - in people and in experiences. I'll find that positive in everyone!
