Good friends are like stars.
You don’t always see them,
but you know they’re always there.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
-Marcel Proust, submitted magnetically!
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 Buscaglia, submitted magnetically!
Kindness is not only Ripply, it is magnetic!!
A few weeks ago I asked Ripplers to send inspirational magnets to decorate my front door. I received several really great ones! I added a couple myself, and the end result was just what I was seeking: an inspirational and indeed Ripply entrance to my home. The unexpected bonus treat is that I get to think of YOU every time I come home! Thanks to those of you who sent magnets, and to all of you who over the past 10 years have shared inspirational quotes and kind words via email. I treasure each one!
I am attempting to attach a photo to this week’s issue so you can see the door. I also uploaded a high resolution to Flickr in case you want to be able to READ each magnet:
p.s. My apologies for forgetting WHO submitted these quotes….I already had them on the door when I brainstormed using them as this week’s Ripples quotes!
