Daily Reminder # 243

(Please scroll down for the Weekly Wordzzle Challenge)

I was just going to do gratitude today, but think I'll add a Neale Donald Walsh message from God. It's short and sweet and true. I think too often we think we have to climb mountains, build cathedrals, be rich and famous to make a mark in the world, but it really is much simpler than that.

I know this was a mistake, but I kind of like it...

On this day of your life, dear friend, 
I believe God wants you to know...
..that the tiniest gesture --
 a smile, a gentle look, a simple
pat on the arm, a soft word -- 
can change a person's life.

Before this very day is out, 
you are going to have a chance
to live in that possibility. 
Look. Watch. See what this day
brings you. And be ready.  

If you believe I am exaggerating about this, 
please know that I am not. 
Someone is waiting for that smile, that look,
that gesture from you right now.

Why you suppose you just read this? 
Do you think this is a coincidence?

Love, Your Friend....
