Have a HAPPY day...

"Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower, and draws all good things toward you. Allow your love to nourish yourself as well as others. Do not strain after the needs of life. It is sufficient to be quietly alert and aware of them. In this way life proceeds more naturally and effortlessly. Life is here to Enjoy! "Yogi, Maharishi Mahesh

I LOVE that quote.I stumbled upon it by accident, too...isn't that the best way?  It's so often that we get SO wrapped up into HOW we want to live life that we don't actually GET to live it...it's SO important to see the beauty in the LITTLEST moments, and JUST BE.  SO much less drama, less stress and SO MUCH MORE fun (and meaningful!) that way!  I love this life, and am so excited to pass that onto my children, my family, friends...and all of YOU!  So in celebration of that serendipitous little "happy" that ended up in my email yesterday, I just HAD to share it...and what better way than to CELEBRATE this with my Unity peeps!After all, it's UNITY THURSDAY!   I actually had a card from the MARCH Kit of the Month to show you today, but I am out of town and forgot to upload the pic to blogger before I left-OOPS!   However, it's just that kind of serendipity that makes this little post ALL the SWEETER...because doesn't this card just RADIATE that quote?  I thought so!My card uses two new releases, "Could I be any cuter" (quote) and "Treasure to Me" (Flower) from CHA that are available at UNITY retailers-you can click HERE for a list of them.   Don't forget to check out the KIT CLUB though, especially if you're not a member, because Angela & Co. has made joining *(or, RE-joining!) the Kit of the Month club FULL of fun perks that will definitely make you...well...HAPPY!Be sure to check out the rest of the STELLAR Unity ROCKSTARS today as they have lots to show you too, and last but not least, check out the UNITY blog for all the happenings this week:

Well, thanks for hanging with me today...I have LOTS to show you but will have to wait a few days til I'm home :)  Having a VERY HAPPY week with the family here in the most magical place on earth!  Hugs!Live, love, laugh and smile,Jess :)xoxo
