I know this is true. There are countless examples.

The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around. It's overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.

  1. I love this....Do you think I could quote it in my blog ? Dana

  2. By all means.

    Heck, I found all my stuff somewhere else! No reason why you can't use it too.

  3. Thanks. My daughter is off to a school retreat on wednesday... to establish the relationship between God, family , friends and herself. I will print few pages from your blog for them to ponder upon. Dana
