I like this quote as I truly believe everyone should keep a smile on their face, and the whole world will be a better place to be in.

Very cute photo! I'd smile too if I had that sitting on my shoulder!

I saw the photo and the thought
'what a hoot' came to mind.
The second thought was, 'Denise will have already commented and said that.'
I love it when I'm right..!

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
