All Because You Smiled

Sometimes you feel you want to cry 
And life seems such a trial... 
But above the clouds there's a bright blue sky
 To make your tears a smile. 

As you travel along life's way
 With its many ups and downs,
Remember that it's true to say
One smile is worth a dozen frowns! 

Happiness comes at times to all,
But sadness comes unbidden...
And sometimes a few tears must fall
Among the laughter hidden. 

So when your friends are feeling down
 And troubles round them piled...
The world will seem a better place
And all because YOU SMILED!

Hooved Footwear

I know that we have some horse lovers here in the south and especially in Texas. Maybe you would like to wear some shoes like these when you go line dancing or maybe just wear them while you are riding horse back instead of your favorite cowboy, cowgirl boots.

The Little Things

Little stones make big mountains,
Little steps can cover miles,
Little acts of loving-kindness
Give the world it's biggest smiles...

Little words can soothe big troubles
Little hugs can dry big tears,
Little candles light the darkness,
Little memories last for years...

Little dreams can lead to greatness,
Little victories to success
It's the little things in life
That bring the greatest happiness...

When I think about all the little things,
warm thoughts of my friends come to mind
and all the joy that friendship brings,
always and forever sharing it with you.

May there always be work for your hands to do;
May your Purse always hold a coin or two;

May the sun always shine on your windowpane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
