Some Good Stuff for a Change

My friend Gloria sent me this in an email.  My eyes are still streaming tears. There are so many small and large acts of kindness we can do every day to have an influence on the world. I vow to do at least one today. Hope you might want to do the same. (Sorry, but I don’t know the original source. If you know, let me know and I’ll add an URL or acknowledgement.)

    There are still so many good people in our world that we hear so little about.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
