My door is always open


I have been thinking alot of a family member of mine recently who is going through a trial -I have been there to listen and I feel so flattered that this family member has felt comfortable enough to me to talk to me. I don't know this person too well, but I feel priveleged to get to know them better. I know how important it is to have a listening ear. Also, you never know when you just might need that certain person to listen to YOU. You know how sometimes its easier to go to one person vs. another when you need a listening ear? I have thought alot about that this morning. We all need as many friends as we can get-we need each other.
Each day I strive to do something nice for somebody-smile at a random person. Even when I am not feeling too happy-you never know-your smile might be what that random person needed to see at that moment. That may be the only smile they see that day.
So much kindness has been shown to me -at times when I needed it the most. Its how I give back. When we do kind things for others it makes our burdens seem so much lighter.
Each day I just try to do something -even if its just a small thing. Even small things can make a difference.
