"Just for Today"

A small, gentle reminder for what it's really all about:

Just for Today

Yesterday I met a stranger...

Today this stranger is my friend.

Had I not taken the time to say hello,

or return a smile,

or shake a hand,

or listen,

I would not have known this person.

Yesterday would have turned into today

and our chance meeting would be gone.

Yesterday I hugged someone very dear to me..

Today they are gone...

and tomorrow will not bring them back.

Wouldn't it be nice
if we all knew tomorrow would be here?

But this is not to be, so take the time TODAY

to give a hug, a smile, an "I love you."

JUST FOR TODAY, at a stranger

...listen to someone's heart

...drop a coin where a child can find it

...learn something new, then teach it to someone

..tell someone you're thinking of them

...hug a loved one

...don't hold a grudge

...don't be afraid to say "I'm sorry"

...look a child in the eye and tell them
how great they are

...don't kill that spider in your house,
he's just lost so show him the way out

...look beyond the face of a person into their heart

...make a promise, and keep it someone, for no other reason
than to just say "hi" kindness to an animal

..stand up for what you believe in

...smell the rain, feel the breeze,
listen to the wind

...use all your senses to their fullest

...cherish all your TODAYS
