A-ttention here friends:
D-o me a favor of taking this test with me.
A-nswer the question- what won’t you miss to do in a day, that
Y-our day wouldn’t be so complete without it. Ready?
O-ffer some help, in any way to anyone?
F-ind a friend, to share good stories and cups of coffee?
Y-ell, because you simply need to!
Or go to a quiet room, and there get your inner peace.
U-tter a prayer at the close of the day?
R-ead a good book, or rest your back?
L-ift someone else, spark a good laugh?
I-nternet check, every now and then?
F-lash your sweetest smile?
E-xcited to hear from you! Let us know-
What completes “a day of your life”?
