Not that we need reminders that being kind is always best, but we sometimes might forget how meaningful a touch of caring can be to someone else. We can’t walk in someone else’s shoes or fully understand someone else’s struggles, but we can listen. We can care.
We can remember to simply say “thank you” whenever someone does something nice. We can also recognize someone else’s good deed by paying it forward. Perhaps we can afford a very grand gesture, like sponsoring someone’s education or work project. Perhaps we can afford to share a slice of our most precious resource… time. Perhaps we can shine light in someone’s otherwise dark corner.
Keep in mind that we all have a quiet place in our hearts and minds where we wish for silver linings to those difficult storms. We can all become like angels on earth by giving someone else a hand up… a thoughtful word… or a sincere acknowledgment of their importance.
Go ahead. Be an angel today.
