“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the small act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
Friends will come and go. But, those who stay close, they turn into family. They are the ones whom you can always count on. Whether you need it or not, they’ll always be there.
Events happen. It’s inevitable. You cannot predict them. Some are joyful, others are full of pain and sorrow. Some may naturally build you to become a better person, others may crush you and deplete you.
You never know when they come, but you will always know you’ve got someone to count on. Someone to trust. And, someone who’s there to help you solve the problem. Keep them close. You’ll never find more than a handful in your life.
Don’t be ignorant of helping another. Instead, find out what all you can do to help. Whether it’s a simple hello or a quick check-in to see how someone is doing, it’s easy to make someone’s day that much better and create a spontaneous smile.
The ones who’ll stand up for us, the ones who will not shy away from a bad decision made, the ones who’ll applaud you for such a small milestone, those are the greatest gifts you will ever receive. Ever.
“Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”
