Philosophy is a line of perfume/bath/lotions. All their bottles have sayings on them.

A friend of mine knows I love it so today she gave me a gift.

Here is the 1st bottle

Philosophy-Pure Grace
one of the best tools for longevity and
good health is not just taking a walk outdoors but
taking your walk while holding the hand of God.
when we walk in gratitude for each and every
moment, we empower ourselves by empowering
our spirits. when we breathe in nature through our
eyes, ears and lips, we become certain that not only
are our souls eternal, but that God knows how to
manage our lives, our troubles, our worries and our
days better than we do. so today and everyday 'let
go and let God"

The 2nd one she got me she said this 'i picked it up cause it was purple and you like purple...i got it cause when i read it, it reminded me of how i feel about you....' She is a good friend. And after reading the bottle and learning how she feels about a little dumb founded. But I like it, and its the way I feel about all of you....

she has a face of light
and is the calm within the depth of any storm.
gentle strange, earth angel
without ego or expectation
only dreams and hope for those she loves,
and she loves many....
but many more love and adore her.
when our hope is lost, it is her smile,
her indifference to all fear and chaos
that opens each of us to the greatest love of all.
her love and legacy teaches us only
what we should give, not what we can take.
her inner grace is our light in the dark,
her flame is eternal.

Wow, Heather!!! That's really wonderful!

I can see how your friend would have thought of you -- and related those things to you. Thank you for sharing it with us!

I wonder if that Philosophy company only makes products for women -- or if they make them for men, also.

It sounds very whole-istic. Pretty cool!

Shoot ... I'm all cryin' and snifflin' again. :cry:

I'M A MAN, DAMMIT ! And redneck at that! :?

Aw, geez, Heather, you've got a good friend there. And a bunch here.

I dunno ... if it were me, I'd start wondering if I might actually BE worth a dam. :wink:

THanks for sharing that with us, hon. Very nice.

Just a short one from a friend of mine not written for me but it is still cool:

O people of the Supreme Intelligence
Know that I am in you, and you are Me
When I created you I said let it Be
And my essence lives in Thee.
The veils of powerlessness are hereby vapour
No longer will the painting not know the painter
Soon the breaths of your essence will live in your creations
They will know and love God as they know and love You
Make your creations for joy and delight
And let them not harm or bring sorrow
Imagine these living creatures now
For they will be your tomorrow.
