ripples

There's something you need to know ...

... you touch people; you do: 

the smiles you give (or don't), 
the words you speak (or write), 
the way you look at people, 
the helping hand, 
the opinion voiced (or not). 

You make a difference in the lives around you.  You really, truly do. 


So smile a little more often.

Lend a hand despite your hesitation.
Voice your opinion gently.
Let your eyes sparkle, sometimes, when you meet another's eyes.



You make a difference.  



You are touching lives, even when you can't tell a thing.  Maybe someday
you'll know what a difference you've made; maybe you'll go to your grave unaware.
But your life makes the lives of those around you better, or worse,
depending on your choices.



"Be kind; for everyone you meet is fighting a great battle."
~ Philo of Alexandria
