Smallest Act

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Too often we underestimate
the power of a touch,
a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment,
or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential
to turn a life around.
Leo F. Buscaglia

Treasure the love you
have received above all.
It will survive long after
your gold and good
health have vanished. Og Mandino

Yesterday is but a dream,
tomorrow but a vision. But
today well lived makes every
yesterday a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the salutation to the dawn.
   Sanskrit Proverb

There is only one difference
between a madman and me.
The madman thinks he is sane.
I know I am mad.

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Jenn Jilks said...

Yes, that is what I miss. We've been far from people these days.

William Kendall said...

Pixie had to look twice to confirm that Santa isn't breathing.

A magnificent sky! Pixie looks cute! ~ Ms. Donyarific

Love the tropical Santa, Cloudia.

Mike said...

I'm with William on that one.

It takes six seconds for a hug to generate a dopamine boost.

Teresa said...

Pixie and I are both a little shocked that Santa is still on his Hawaiian holiday instead of managing the Elves producing toys at the North Pole. Or has global warming gotten so bad that Santa can now wear shorts and Hawaiian shirts at the North Pole...

Love your sky shots! Have a wonderful weekend.

Each of you brings joy here. We love you! Thanks so much!!

Your street photo led my eyes on a path through the pigeons, over the curb, to the people at the picnic table, and then a slight left between the trees to the lone figure walking along the wall. I enjoyed looking at it!

That Santa clause doll is so funny

DVArtist said...

Ha Ha nothing like a Hawaiian Santa. Thanks for joining FFO. You are the best.

Pisi Prkl said...

Love that Dali quote. Pixie has 1000 yard stare. A mouse? Bird maybe.

Santas are popping up all over the place! I saw a couple out on the golf course the other day.

Yes, your opening quotes speaks volumes and is just what my Critter post of today is all about. Your second photo is adorable, and it made my day on FaceBook today! Enjoy your lovely world and hugs to you.

I am running very late, but LOVE the clouds. Never seen clouds in that formation before. Two distinct cloud types.

I had to laugh at the FFO Santa. Clever, dear Cloudia. Pixie is adorable in her photo, too. Very photogenic.

Look how Pixie has feet tucked under. What a cutie pie!
