Helping Hands Feel So Good

There are times in life that you never know what to expect. Today I had a day that turned out so much better than I could have ever expected.  To be around people who genuinely care about others and the level of that was truly amazing. It’s been a long time since I have experienced such a feeling.  It was refreshing on so many levels. These people were so positive and it was the kind of positive that you can’t fake. It’s been a long day but as I sit here I can’t help but think my heart touched in ways I never expected and for me that is somewhat scary.

Little Things Are What Matters

As we go through life we quickly come to realize that it’s the small things that really matter. I could write about some very complicated subjects but the things that are the  most important are those that people have done to make life more enjoyable. Often these things happen when you least expect it. The real truth about life is that we never know what is going on in someone’s life and they don’t with yours. I know there have been times in which I felt my world collapsing  around me when someone has reached out to offer a kind word or gesture.  As we age and begin to reflect on our life’s journey it’s the small things you remember not the big stuff or the arguments. For those of you are younger you need to stop and enjoy the roses of life because one day you will wake up and wonder what happened to all the years. They go by so fast and all of the time you spent on so many important things fade like a wisp of wind blowing across spring meadow.  As I like to say ” I have no idea what my parents got me for Christmas in 1965″ ( yes I am that old)  but I can tell you about a kind woman a couple of years ago who offered to feed me with her cafeteria discount just to make sure I was ok. Failure to realize it’s the little things in life that matter is a huge mistake that one day you will come to regret.

Angels Touching Our Lives

When we often think of angels we imagine some heavenly spirit. The thing is that there are angels here on earth that touch our lives and we never realize or understand when it happens. The thing is it can happen in your daily life in situations that you would never think it would.  It is only upon reflection that you can understand that an angel entered your life. So what do these angels look like? They come in all shapes and colors.  You see the angels pictured in many bibles would be looked at weirdly if they went flying down the street. No these angels are very often people you meet in your normal routine. The thing is that in many situations they are being an angel and don’t realize it. Have you ever been in a situation that all of a sudden you hear something inside of you say “it’s ok to open up to a total stranger”?  I know I have.  Also it’s also important to understand that you have no idea what is going on in  their lives.  Them being an angel for you very well could be something they don’t understand either.
