Brighten Your Corner - Ye Are the Light

Have you ever noticed the great differences between people you meet?

Some are sunshiny as a hand full of forget-me-nots.

Others come on like frozen mackerel.

A cheery, comforting nurse can make a hospital stay bearable.

An upbeat secretary can make visitors glad you came to see them.

Every corner of the world has its clouds, gripes, complainers and pains in the neck---
because many people have yet to learn that honey works better than vinegar.  

You're in control of your small corner of the world.

Brighten it...YOU CAN!
