JUST FOR TODAY

Yesterday I met a stranger....
Today this stranger is my friend. Had I not taken the
time to say hello, or return a smile, or shake a hand,
or listen, I would not have known this person.

Yesterday would have turned into today and our chance
meeting would be gone.

Yesterday I hugged someone very dear to me.
Today they are gone...
and tomorrow will not bring them back.

Wouldn't it be nice if we all knew tomorrow they would
be here? But this is not to be, so take the time TODAY
to give a hug, a smile, and "I love you."


JUST FOR TODAY,
....
.smile at a stranger
.....listen to someone's heart
.....drop a coin where a child can find it
.....learn something new, then teach it to someone
.....tell someone you're thinking of them
.....hug a loved one
.....don't hold a grudge
.....don't be afraid to say "I'm sorry"
.....look a child in the eye and tell them how great they are
.....look beyond the face of a person into their heart
.....make a promise, and keep it
.....call someone, for no other reason than to just say "hi"
.....show kindness to an animal
.....stand up for what you believe in
.....smell the rain, feel the breeze, listen to the wind
.....use all your senses to their fullest
.....cherish all your TODAYS
