asks us to use a quote about friendship.
The words in blue are from Eleanor Rossevelt.
Friendship with oneself is all important;
Enjoy your you-ness every single day.
Be constantly aware
Of the great world that you share,
With that person who's inside you all the way.
Friendship with some others is exciting;
When one's liked it's the icing on the cake.
But, without self-love, you'll find
No real warmth inside your mind,
So you cannot give, but only merely take.
Forgive yourself for all your small shortcomings;
Don't be hard on someone who should mean so much.
Then you'll find you can forgive
Other folk with whom you live
And you can give the world a tender touch.
A baby loves itself, it's quite self-centred;
It's the centre of its little universe;
Then it learns to love one other,
Its own adoring Mother.
Loving others is a task we must rehearse.
Light a little flame of liking in your own mind,
Then let it shine on others every day.
Friendship's one of life's great pleasures,
Let's dispense it in large measures.
A friendship with ourselves shows us the way.
POOR PEWTER PIG!
Why is it always pigs they choose to store their money in?
Why is it only pigs that have a slit cut in their skin?
Why don't they choose an elephant, a monkey or a cat?
No! Don't tell me it's because a pig is always fat!
Don't add insult to injury! A hippo's 'porky' too!
But I've never seen a Hippo Bank in all my life! Have you?
A whale is round and blubbery and could hold a lot of cents,
But a Whale Bank? Never! Never! It doesn't make much sense!
They try to say they trust me with their items of small change,
But why don't they trust the others? I find it very strange.
I don't mind being an ornament, an item of great beauty,
But it does upset me rather when I'm put on fiscal duty!
The coins weigh heavily inside; I sometimes get the colic;
Those heavy pennies weigh me down, too cumbersome to frolic!
As you see, I look despondent, but no-one cares a fig.
When someone created a money-box, why did they pick poor Pig?
