and what started out as a horrid day somehow got better. Maybe it’s my Dory that makes it all better. No matter how low I feel, my husband makes me feel better. He helps keep the lows from being 20,000 leagues low. I really couldn’t be more fortunate to have him in my life. Even the bad news I got from the doctor was lessened by him just by being at my side.
This blog even lifts my spirits. Every time I log on, someone has either liked or started to follow my small insignificant contributions. I am humbled and stunned. I like to think humanity is good… kind…and meaningful. While sometimes I get the stunning example of how to not be a human being, many times over I get to see beautiful moments, wonderful, touching, and completely inspiring where humankind is being generous to one another.
It does give me pause though, when I think of one fundamental issue….:
why wait for something tragic to happen for people to start seeing others as just people instead of the person’s nationality, sexual orientation, or race?
We are beautiful. We are unique. We matter to someone. We are someone’s wife, husband, son or daughter. We belong somewhere and are deserving of a happy life, a healthy life. I charge everyone who stops to read my words… everyone who follows me…
Do something nice to or for someone you have never met. Something that makes that person pause for a moment and become humbled by the random act of kindness. That one act may have been inconsequential to you and you may only think of it for a minute or so. But they will remember that act for weeks… months… maybe years. By just that one simple gentle gesture, you may change their world, affect them so deeply… moved them so intimately that it just might lead to a better world.
with that I leave with two links… one to The Humanity Formula, an article by margaretfarid and the other to a series of pictures of humanity.
I shall end this by my favorite quote and by saying this post is for you, my faceless reader.
…….what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you.
