“The magic of kind words from others is the absolute joy you feel in your heart. Today I received a loving text, a sweet message on Facebook and a wonderful telephone call. I am so blessed!!” (A message that I posted on Facebook on November 2nd, 2011)
Today I feel very rich. I’m not talking about financial wealth but rather the way I feel when I am so happy. The routine of everyday life can often be monotonous and it is those slivers of happiness that make each day so worth living.
As I sit at my desk taking care of my office duties… I am smiling. Even if I never leave this desk and see the outside world today, my day has been made better by several very nice, loving human beings.
There is a lesson to be learned in all of this.
As I wrote in a recent blog, “There are no excuses for any of us on this planet to be strangers anymore. We have this unbelievable opportunity to reach out across the miles and touch each other’s lives….to love each other and be there for each other.”
As Sam Cooke sang all those years ago, “What a wonderful world this would be!”
