aways take love

when someone reaches out a hand
take it and do not feel unworthy
always take love when it is offered
it may be a life saving event

when you are down reach out to a friend
you never know what one will reach back
always reach out for love when in need
you may change where you are going

someone smiles at you with kindness
let the kindness fill your heart with joy
always let love in when it shows up
you never know when you will need that joy

when you think that life has nothing more to offer
smile at a child who need a smile to cheer them up
always seek out those who can bring you love and joy at no cost
for they will return more to you than you gave to them

when you reach out your hand to offer love and kindness
remember the times when someone reach out to you
always give love when you are able to
you never know when you will change someone's life even your own

by Michael Jospeh

That was lovely ...
May I add one thing ?
Don't overlook the people you think don't like you.
It sometimes doesn't reach their lips ... it's in the eyes.
A softness that is not usually there ... a look that lingers a moment longer than usual, a slight nod of the head,
and perhaps there will be smile ... however small.
These are precious.
An acknowledgment from a foe is the greatest gesture you can get.
