Життя у собі гарне

Життя у собі гарне,
Але коли самітнє –
Здається марне,
Не гріє й сонце літнє.

Але з любов’ю,
Життя розквітне;
Додасться здоров’ю,
Життя оживе, стане помітне.

Коли поруч друг,
Сила чотирьох додається.
Легше братись за плуг,
Легше виграється.

Май друга,
Другом будь!
Хай зникне туга,
Хай зміцніє путь!

Love

Love.
What else?
Like a white dove…
It cures, brings good health.
Real love is a shield for the soul.
In summer it is like a gulp of fresh juice,
In winter it is better than coal.
Love is rich & that’s the truth;
Love is young and mature,
It will win in any strife.
With love we endure.
Love is life!

How to be happy

Banff
Be happy – the shortest and the only way is Christ.
Direct your ways to Him in all:
At home, at work, at leisure…
Let your kind deeds be filled with pleasure.
Keep Him in sight in winter, spring, summer, and fall.
Praise Him as if tomorrow may never come –
Say those kind words, do kind deeds, keep calm.

My mother

CAM00260
I thank you, Mom, for your love so strong!
Thank you for your care.
You helped me whether I was right or wrong,
You protected me in winter frost and summer glare.

You cook best food in the world;
You covered me with a blanket when I slept curled.
When I was ill, you were with me;
When I was sad, you made my mind free.

Thank you because you are still close by.
You give advice,
You share your rice.
You just help, you never ask why.
