Tonight was the first night I’ve gotten to meet with them. They are seriously the sweetest best people I could have asked for to be my visiting teachers. They didn’t offer a spiritual message, but what they did offer meant so much more to me than what a spiritual message would have. They offered me friendship and a safe time to just talk and escape pressures. They probably have no idea how much they helped me tonight, but I’m so grateful for them right now. They probably think that they just had a pleasant evening with ice cream involved. But I think that’s how a lot of kind acts are. Sometimes the things that matter the most to people, we don’t even realize. Just smiling at someone could completely change their day. Holding open a door or helping someone pick up their things could make the difference between suicide or not for them. We don’t always realize the impact our actions have on others. We should always do our best to be an example and a friend to everyone who comes into our lives. We don’t know what is going on in their lives. Always smile, always be friendly. Love them as you want to be loved. It really does make a difference.
