LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT

And you think that you have no way to be a part of this life's solutions?Well, let me say this;I sincerely believe that all of us have our own unique way of adding to the betterment of all humankind.Most of you, like myself will never be rich or famous. Nor will we be the inventor of the next "big" thing that will make life easier for the rest of us.But we will all have a chance many times a day to make life better  not only for ourselves but others to boot.Please allow me to share with you how my day  went the other day.After getting up and having coffee I went to the kitchen and washed up the breakfast dishes that my wife had to leave because she had an early appointment.That was my first chance to do something nice for someone.Later, I went out to run a couple of errands. When I was getting to the door of the post office I saw an elderly fellow getting out of his car.So instead of rushing in and taking care of my business I decided to stand there in the cold wind and wait til he got to the door so I could hold it open for him. He gave me a warm smile and said thank you so much. Now I wasnt doing it to get a thank you but I admit it was nice to hear him say thanks.Later I was sitting in traffic waiting for the light to change and noticed there was a car trying to turn in my lane from a sidestreet. Since the road was filled with traffic behind me and not knowing how long it would take for him to get out I stopped and waved him to come on over and get in front of me. Again I was greeted with a broad smile and a lip snyced thank you.When I arrived home my beautiful wife was there and the first thing I told her was just how damned beautiful she was.Later that evening I thought of all the opportunities that life gives us to do a little something nice for someone even tho we may never see them again. I believe it should go without saying that we all need to be really nice to those we love as well as those we meet everyday as we go about our everyday living.I'm not writing this so you will say something nice about me but rather I am trying to get you to see that no matter your station or circumstances, you can choose to be a part of life's solutions instead of becoming part of the "problem" Today, while you are here how about just doing something nice for someone just because you can.If you make this a part of your daily routine I can assure you that not only will you have more friends but you will see life repaying you in so many wonderful ways.Dont do just to get a reward, do it because your heart says so.I leave all of you wonderful folks with peace, love , and joy."HUGS" to all.

Received news (ironically) from an old JS member I haven't seen in years that lives out this way.Both of us were on the same ball field last night (six degrees of separation) daughters on opposite teams, not knowing of one another being there till we saw eachother.She (Tina) asked if I knew what happened to Westy.Course I hadn't.Tina found out of facebook, which I don't have that Westy was in a plane crash and is in hospital.I found a site we can be updated

Thought you want to know.
Lots of JS love and hugs your way.

Sorry to hear about your friend's accident. That's very sad. You're so right though, every day we can chose to make someone else's day a little brighter. You're a good person.
