A Little Love and Kindness

This post is simply meant to bring a smile and to lift you up. 
I trust that both the pictures and the words will leave you with a sense of joy and peace.
I am not sure of the author of these words, but The Collingsworth Family sing this song.


Sing a song, Sing a song; Spread some cheer, Spread some cheer

There are sad and lonely faces every where...

Be a friend, Be a friend; Show some love, Show some love

It will lift them from the dungeons of despair.



Show a little bit of love and kindness,

Never go around with hatred's blindness

Take a little time to reach for joy and wear a happy face...


Sing a little bit when the days are dreary,

Offer a little help to a friend who's weary

That's the way to make the world a happy place.


Sing a song, Sing a song; Spread some cheer, Spread some cheer

There are sad and lonely faces every where...

Offer help, Offer help; Bring some hope, Bring some hope

To the weakened and discouraged on life's road...



Show a little bit of love and kindness,

Never go around with hatred's blindness

Take a little time to reach for joy and wear a happy face...

Sing a little bit when the days are dreary,

Offer little help to a friend who's weary


That's the way to make the world a happy place.

I think the last one is my favorite. The first photo and the last one, do you know what the flowers are? They are gorgeous, and new to me. Great photography.

Hi Ruth. "This post is simply meant to bring a smile and to lift you up." It did both and I enjoyed it. Thank you. Really excellent photos of the flowers. As always, you've done a great job with your August header. Very nice! As I'm typing this I'm wondering if kids will be going back to school on time in Morden and if you will be driving. However it goes, stay safe and healthy. John

I loved these photos. The very first one is a kind of flower my mom used to grow in hanging pots. Cannot remember but think they are fuschias. They come in a variety of colors! I have a couple of hardyones in my garden but much smaller.

Those fuschia blossoms remind me of the red hat society. That's their colors. Do they even exist anymore? Anyway, love the lyrics & your blossoms brighten any day or night!
