Let me just share to you this beautiful story from Mountain Wings....
I am a 58-year-old woman who was fortunate enough to have the
world's greatest mom with me until a year and a half ago. There
are no words to describe how much I miss her.
I know this may seem strange to tell and believe me, I am not
looking for a substitute for my mom, but I have found myself
looking at elderly ladies and thinking how nice it would
be to adopt one.
At the grocery store just last week, I saw a dear person near me;
we were both bagging some produce. I looked at her and politely
said, "The produce here is always attractive isn't it?"
Why did I engage in a conversation?
Because I just needed a smile or a kind word from this lady.
What I got has had a profound effect on me. This sweet person
looked at me as if I were an alien, did not speak and did not
smile, but just looked at me dumbfounded. I moved away crushed
and almost cried.
I NEEDED her to give me just a kind word or a smile, no
more. I vowed then to always stop what I am doing no matter how
much in a hurry I am or what the other person looks like, and
give that kind word or smile. Give the kind word or a smile.
It may really be NEEDED.
None of us knows what is going on in the life or thoughts of
another. As my sister so wisely pointed out as I related this
story to her, we are all God's children and He loves all of us
no matter how we may look to each other.
A kind word or a smile can be just a brief encounter in our life
but can last forever in the heart of another.

Blogging is not a new word to me but writing a Blog sounds maybe new. I always wanted to write a blog. But I guess, I am just lazy to do so. My friends always tell me to try it but I said well maybe it's not my world..Anyway, I already started it before but I just got discouraged because the first time I wrote a blog, I wasn't able to save it. I clicked something accidentally in the screen and to my dismay my first blog was gone. I tried my best to find and to retrieve it again but without success, it was totally gone...So, here I am again trying to do it for the second time. Besides, I believed that I have the talent of writing back in my school days and now I might want to practice it again. I love writing essays too, so I hope this time I will be successful in entering the Blogger's world.
