|Kindness in words creates confidence ... (Photo credit: symphony of love)|
It's amazing how kind words from old friends can flip your mood. I went from being pretty down to laughing and smiling, a definite turn around. One friend I've known for twenty years, but haven't seen in ages reached out and was just an absolute doll. The other, a crazy friend of the past seven or eight years I guess, appeared at just the right time tonight too. Both of them said things that absolutely turned my night from gloomy to grand. Thank you both.
I think we don't realize sometimes how powerful a few kind words or just genuinely caring for others can do for them. Sure, we may not be able to solve all their problems, but you never know how one smile can completely brighten a day. It doesn't take much; a sincere smile, a how are you, or a thinking of you can do it. Words have great power, why not use it to reach out to someone you've not connected with in awhile or someone you know is struggling. You just might touch the life of one who really needs it.
