  1. What a BEAUTIFUL thing. LOVE rules……… Don’t know where to start in your own efforts to make a difference in our world. Well, think “Globally”………..ACT LOCALLY. Yes, you can make a difference in our world by simply doing one very small act of kindness, then another and another. When you’re on your deathbed (transition), you’ll be glad you did. Your LOVE is the only thing that will matter. Practice random acts of kindness all the time and you’ll be happier too. (-:
