HELPING ONE ANOTHER WITH KINDNESS, FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE

We meet people all the time in our daily life...strangers we pass on the street, acquaintances and friends, new and old.

God put people in our life for many reasons...
for love, friendship, companionship, advice, help, happiness and simple joy.

Life and situations can be misleading. What may look like a happy person...really in their heart, may be lonely. A neighbor who keeps to themselves maybe... would really love a chat with you.
Sometimes when we pass someone we know and say, "I'll call you"...do we really know how much that person would love a call and some company?

We all have busy lives...but let us all do a little more for others. Do something nice for someone. Call a friend. Give a compliment to a stranger. Smile more to others you meet. Offer to help someone in need...it might be the simplest thing, but it shows support and caring...which we all need.

Do you know what I think is the greatest benefit from the creation of facebook? (and other social networking sites) It allows people to be connected and feel connected to one another. That is so important. People can reach out to old friends and meet new ones. Friendships on line are being formed and people are less lonely.

Wherever you are, you can make a difference.
GOD SOMETIMES USES US TO DO HIS WORK. So please be more aware...we always do not know... what lies behind the eyes of a person we encounter in our daily life. Give more of yourself... A little help can go a long way...
God will reward you because HE loves you and appreciates your kindness in helping others.

I find that if I am in the store and some elderly person wants to talk to me, I stop and listen to what they have to say. I must admit there are many lonely elderly people out there. So for a few minutes of my time, they can walk away feeling if someone cares.

Dear Ginny,
Thank you for sharing your experiences.
I too feel the same way. When we take the time to listen to others, they feel special and important...and in fact, they really are.
It is so nice to give back to others...and make someone happy.
Warmest regards to you
