Each of us can look back upon someone who made a great difference in our lives,
someone whose wisdom or simple acts of caring
made an impression on us.
In all likelihood, it was someone
who sought no recognition for their deed,
other than the joy of knowing that,
by their hand,
another’s life had been made better.

Stephen M. Wolf

Lately I’ve been thinking about those who lift me, strengthen me, help me to find peace.  Sweet angels that God places in my life at the right time, in just the right place ––messengers of love, bestowing heaven’s gifts.

What would we do without those angels?  The ones who leave an impression on our hearts.  Who offer wisdom or simple acts of caring.  The ones through whom we are made better.

I’ve been thinking of one way I could multiply goodness today.  Perhaps it is simply this… I am going to take a few moments to ponder about someone who has made a difference in my life recently.

And then,

I am going to send them the quote at the top of this post and a simple thank you expressing my gratitude for their wisdom, acts of caring, and kind deeds.

Because sometimes I forget to be grateful.

I forget to acknowledge those who walk the path beside me.

The ones who make every step on this journey worthwhile.

When I stop to ponder, it doesn’t take long for my heart to discover that I have been so blessed.

In fact, my cup runneth over.
