My kids and I made this video for my husband for Father’s Day this year.
I have decided that I’m going to start making an effort to make sure that I tell at least one person a day – how they have changed my life, blessed my life, taught me something or how much I appreciate them….because we only have a limited number of “Tomorrows” and we just don’t know when today will be our last.
I challenge you to take 30 seconds a day – to leave a comment for someone on Facebook, send an email, make a phone call or better yet…meet in person – and tell someone how much they mean to you.
Don’t just stop at your family members and your friends…try telling the grocery store clerk, the mail delivery person, the guy that always remembers your order at your favorite restaurant, your hair dresser, the sweet little old man that walks his dog past your house every morning, the garbage man, your neighbors, your children’s teachers, the bus driver, the ice cream man, the photo lady at Costco, the pharmacist, the deli guy that always remembers your extra cup of ranch dressing, the smiling girl at the front desk at the gym, your doctor, the Fed Ex guy, the Vets assistance that spoils your pet with love and treats when you leave them for exams, your boss, the guy that always leaves a 25% tip, the bowling alley chap that helps you search for a ball for your children, the guy who delivers your water, the clerk at the video or music store…etc …even if you just take 2 seconds to stop what you are doing, look them in the eye and give a heartfelt “Thank you.” – it makes a huge difference in someones day.
My Mom used to tell me “Smile. It could save someone’s life” – I truly believe that.
