The Lives We Touch

"We never touch people so lightly that we do not leave a trace."
-Peggy Tabor Millin

The little things we say and do can make such a difference in another person's day. A smile, a kind word or gesture can go a long way. Not only does a person feel better by spreading kindness, but the feeling is multiplied along the way.

The same is true of unkindness, rudeness and hurtful things.

Given a choice, I choose to spread good feelings. I know that whenever the world smiles upon me, it is easier to smile back than to frown.

'Pay it forward' ... take a kindness that you receive and give it to the next person who crosses your path. The greatest gifts in life come from giving.
