Hello, friends!  Thanks for coming by!


Do you have a friend who’s going through a tough time?

Have you ever thought that YOU could be her bright spot?  That you could be the one to shine a warm sunny light into the shadows of her life?

We really do have the power to brighten someone’s day.  

Make a point this week to carry the sun around with you and SHINE for all you’re worth.

Then just maybe your friend will say…

“When it was dark,
you always carried the sun in your hand for me.”

Seán O’Casey


To encourage you in this sunny endeavor… I created this FREE printable art quote for you.  Download and print out to frame it or even post it on your fridge as your reminder to carry the sun for someone else this week.
