if I.....

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

can just touch one life with a word or a photo then I feel that all of my efforts, all of my ideas, all of my thoughts have transcended my own little space and have moved forward into the collective good.

Recently, Anne, a follower of my facebook page left me this message.

loving browsing through your page....much thanks....you bring beauty and joy to the eyes.....

WOW!! All I could think of was WOW!! 

When I woke up this morning I found that I have almost 2300 followers on that page, and I wonder where did they come from. 

When we start our social media pages, we treat them like our gardens. 

We plant them, and water them, and give them nourishment in hopes that they will thrive. 

And when they grow and blossom we are thankful for our accomplishment,

because we don't know how it will turn out. 

Yesterday I wrote about the connections we make and how wonderful they are. 

Today I am thinking about how much Anne's words mean to me and how I can carry that forward into my day. 

Today I will make more of an effort, no matter how cranky I may be in the moment, to share a smile and an extra thank you to the people I meet. 

I hope you will, too. The universe will thank you.
