When the days are like bleak weather

and our bodies to this tune dance

all we can ask for is a blanket of words

sewn with love and soaked in wisdom

to warm our hearts and keep us strong.                                                                                                                                                 written by Flora.      

I came from the long break with something sensational. How can we keep our hearts in the best condition, how can we dwell on positive things against the thousands of negatives that we see and hear around us? Reading great things !! Just for you, I have gotten a couple of quotes to keep you motivated. Please enjoy.
