‘Tis the Season for Others

Make a difference in someone’s life this weekend by being kind, caring, and helpful. After all, we do not know what others may be dealing with, and especially during the holiday season. Even the smallest of gestures may actually be more impactful than you might believe possible.

As I started to share this post this morning, I recalled a poem that I had read awhile back. I thought it would be good to share today… I hope some will find solace in reading it. For others, I pray it will help make a difference in their lives.

“Every minute someone leaves this world” by Marianne Baum

“Every minute someone leaves this world behind.

Age has nothing to do with it. 

We are all in “the line” without knowing it.

We never know how many people are before us.

We cannot move to the back of the line.

We cannot step out of the line.

We cannot avoid the line.

So while we wait in line:

Make moments count.

Make priorities.

Make the time.

Make your gifts known.

Make a nobody feel like a somebody.

Make your voice heard.

Make the small things big.

Make someone smile.

Make the change.

Make love.

Make up.

Make peace.

Make sure to tell your people they are loved.

Make sure to have no regrets.

Make sure you are ready…”

Have a great day. Make it happen. Make it count!
