Parish of Ogonnelloe
Today's Thought
The Optimist Creed by Christian Daa Larson

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
