Thanks for Making A Difference

The other day I was at the mall having lunch with my family, I usually have my baby’s stroller next to the table and  give my baby something to play with while I eat, people usually come and comment on how cute the baby is. So that day I was sitting waiting for everyone to finish eating so we can finish our shopping, I see a guy  from far away limping with a walking aid, approaching the stroller, he appeared to have some kind of down syndrome, so naturally with my mother instinct I got worried, then I see that he left his walking aid and pushed the stroller aside, and he said something I was not able to understand. I was trying to assume the best and not over react, as I try my best to be kind to all those around me and not cause a seen. So after he pushed the stroller he knelt down to the ground and picked up my baby’s pack of Heinz that I have given her earlier to play with, he picked it up thanked me and even gave me a sticker that said “ Thank you for making a difference in our community” he also asked me to stick it right away on the stroller.

He left me baffled, surprised, embarrassed and captivated by the kindness and purity of this mans heart, I wanted to run after him and thank him for making a difference in the community and tell him if the world had more people like him not me the world would be a much much better place. It is such an exquisite thing to meet people like him, someone who was probably constantly judged and mistreated to be so kind and courteous. Until this day, more than a week later I am still in awe because of that mans action.

Wouldn’t you want to be a person that has an impact like that on people, wouldn’t you want to be an inspiring person that captivates peoples hearts silently with just a simple act of kindness. Wouldn’t you want to live in a world where everyone cares about each other, kind to one another and hearts that are purified with no resentments. It is a wonderful world that he is in, it is a wonderful world because people like him exist.

True Love Comes From the Heart of a Parent

Parents are the source of all that is joyful, all that is beautiful, all that is warm, all that is filled with love. No matter who the parent is they are always a source of something incredible and something essential; comfort, safety, security, therapy, any kind of help and so much more. After becoming a parent myself I have tasted a new kind of sacrifice, maybe sacrifice is not the right word for it, it is giving all you got and completely surrendering, without a second of doubt and with total and complete happiness.

I have recently been blessed with the pleasure of being around many parents, my husbands, my own and several others. I have noticed that their generosity in giving extends and spreads to all those around them. It is such an ecstatic feeling when you are around such an everlasting warmth of a parent. 

There are no words that can be written nor spoken that can fulfill the blessing of having a parent, no matter how old you are, how independent or how strong, ,a parent will always be your soft spot, because they are the most precious and beautiful thing any living human or animal has. Do not let pride, greed or high expectations get in the way of your appreciation.

If your parents or a parent is around, be kind to them, appreciate them, be patient and be courteous, after all they went so far for you, literally and metaphorically, since the moment you were born they sacrificed so much for you the simplest of them is their heart and soul.
