Be the best you can be


by Joanne Gill-Maddick

Love and friendship are one of
the greatest blessings in life

Love your mother and father, brothers, sisters, husband or wife


Hate is a very harsh word, we need to love one’s neighbour as oneself


Every person is an island uniquely unto themselves


Be morally clean and exercise kindness be the best that you can be


Being respectful, kind and giving nurtures humanity


Being filthy rich may be quite nice but it doesn’t solve problems that arise in life


Yes it helps to have money but it isn’t everything


Food, water and a roof over your head are life’s basic things


Along with a loving family and friends to walk life’s path with you


You will be truly blessed in everything you do
