We never know

what words will wrap around someone’s heart

and make a day bearable.

We never know

what actions will give strength to someone’s resolve

and encourage tomorrow.



What a gift it is when someone from long ago calls to say that you made a profound difference in their life.  How humbling it is to know that we touch so many people, and to be reminded how important it is to appreciate those we meet from day to day.

you touched someone,

Caressed pain away

with a kind word,

a warm embrace,

a sincere smile.


you didn’t even know

the comfort that

trailed behind you

as you walked by.
