New Beginnings To Do List

Quiet Moment
To Do List: 
Mend a quarrel.
Seek out a forgotten friend.
Dismiss suspicion, and replace it with trust.
Write a love letter.
Share some treasure.
Give a soft answer.
Offer encouragement.
Manifest your loyalty in word and deed.
Keep a promise.
Find the time.
Forgive an enemy.
Apologize if you are wrong.
Try to understand.
Flout envy.
Examine your demands on others.
Think first of someone else.
Be kind; be gentle.
Laugh a little.Laugh a little more.
Deserve confidence.
Take up arms against malice.
Decry complacency.
Express your gratitude.
Welcome a stranger.
Gladden the heart of a child.
Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.
Speak your love.
Speak it again.
Speak it still once again.
 --Reverend Lee Reid Nov-Dec 1996 Newsletter, 
Unitarian Universalist Society of the Palisades

This was shared by Amy Taylor who says, "Reverend Reid was a woman who lived peace.  She died unexpectedly in  a car accident several years ago, and a collection of her writings was published posthumously in her honor - Saints and Souls. This list is from that book.
