The Wisest man
I ever knew,
had little to say
and lots to do.
But at the close of every day
He’d turn to others and he’d say …
Well done my friend … well done!
So one day I asked what he meant. Was he referring to a specific job well done? That the work day was over? That it was time to go home and rest? That he was satisfied with the others and the day’s accomplishments, and he replied to me:

I never get over the fact that there are those who go through each day and pass “good will” around the way I see so many others pass around ridicule and disdain, indifference and cruelty.
There are many who seem preoccupied with themselves, their personal wants and desires … and yet , even still, there are those quiet gentle people who always seem to have that extra bit of time to extend a helping hand, to make a small difference, to speak no ill will. I wonder why that is?
I believe within most of us is a “fire” – to make a positive difference, to be and do more. Buried deep, perhaps, but in there none the less. I think perhaps now is a good time for the sleeper within us to awaken!
Thank you for your visit. Have a wonderful day and better tomorrow!
