Breathe Deep, Talk Slow



Breathe deep,

Talk slow...




Give big,

Take less...




Don't count,

Just guess.
..



Touch kind,

Act fair...




Plan bold,

Try prayer...



Do peace,

Dream far.
..



Feel loved,

You are!




My friend Pat sent me a sweet note and this little poem was included...
...thought I would share it with you!

Thank you Pat!

I hope you are having a good weekend!
:)
