Pay it forward

"Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might
be the only sunshine he sees all day."

I do believe that if we Pay it Forward the benefits from it can be...amazing and life changing for you and others. I love the a talk that I read about this very subject, by Henry B. Erying.

"If we ask Heavenly Father in our personal morning prayer’s to help us to be observant for opportunities to serve], the answer to our [personal] prayer may be the face of an old friend, one you have not seen in years but whose needs suddenly come into your mind and heart and feel as if they are your own. I’ve had that happen to me. Old friends have reached out to me across the miles and the years to offer encouragement when only God could have told them of my burden.”

I have been the recipient of so many people's kindness and it has been life changing for me. And I will always be grateful for that type kindness!

"No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind
action leads to another. Good example is followed.
A single act of kindness throws out roots in all
directions, and the roots spring up and make new
trees. The greatest work that kindness does to
others is that it makes them kind themselves."

~ Amelia Earhart

"A fellow who does things that count, doesn't usually need
to stop to count them."

~ Albert Einstein
