it's so simple really


Transformations

It's really so simple, and can take just a brief moment of our time. Yet, how often do we not do it.

Your kind words and thoughts helped me so much yesterday. They are always like a healing balm to my soul.

I think of the times I have shared a brief smile with a stranger and I wonder if it improved their day. I know that a smile or a kind word has never made my day worse. It is so simple and it doesn't cost us a thing.

P.S. My peripheral neuropathy seems to be having a field day in my body right now. It is doing high jumps, sprints, and relays. I am definitely ready to hand off the baton. So today I am going to focus on healing, and I am going to spend time helping my sister with some errands she needs done. I am going to practice simple acts of caring.

  1. Isn't it amazing how helping someone else helps us to feel better when we're hurting? What a blessing you will be to your sister today. Sending you out a big (but gentle) hug and prayers for your healing.

    Take good care,

    ~ Cassandra

  5. Dear Laura, That is a wonderful quote from Leo Buscaglia. He is very wise indeed.
    It does not cost to be kind; however not being kind brings so much pain and deep hurt
    I hope you are feeling better. ~ Catherine

  7. Hi Laura...I always loved Leo's writing and still have a few of his books. He was a light in the world. We can all be lights, actually, right? You are one! Susan
