Say A Word

Standard

The message below was sent by one of my best friends from high school on the very day her father passed away. I felt the keen sincerity that came along with it. I was not aware that I was making an impact at that time just by behaving as I normally would—cracking jokes and laughing out loud. What came out naturally to me became something she still heretofore remembers.

Day 020 January 20

English Translation:
“Thank you, rachel..thank you for making Dad laugh whenever you visit us at home.”

Likewise, making other people’s burdens lighter doesn’t always require too much effort on our part. It can just be a tap on the shoulder, a “hi” or “hello,” a minute or two of our time, a simple text message, a “thank you,” a smile, or a short prayer. How are you making an impact on the lives of the people around you? Whether or not you’re aware of it, you’re making a difference. Make it a good one!
