Today was beautiful, sunny ( yes sunny) and very cold. Jeff and I decided to do our DATE today, instead of tonight. I think he knew that I needed to get out of the house, it is just too quite and lonely around here. Lee went to basketball practice and like I mentioned before, Lauren left to head back to college last night, so we definitely trying to adjust, once again. I feel like some times in life, that is all we do ... ADJUST to our new baby, ADJUST to our new job, ADJUST our time, now that we are grandparents, and on and on. Yes, there always seems to be something that we have to ADJUST to, and some times, that isn't as easy as it looks.
I loved this poem tonight. It really sums up what life is like, when we take time out of our busy schedules to leave HEART PRINTS. While I was in a store today, the sales clerk asked me a question about something, and then one thing lead to another, she asked me for my Motivational Blog address, then she shared with me some of the struggles that she had been through. When I left, I felt better. I felt like I had made a new friend, and that is what I believe these HEART PRINTS are all about. Taking time out of our busy schedules, to stop and connect with someone, yes it makes a huge difference in your life when you do...try it sometime!
Go on, get out there and leave a few HEART PRINTS of your own this year.

Whatever our hands touch...we leave
On walls, on furniture, on door knobs,
dishes and books.
As we touch we leave our identity..
Oh please where ever I go today...
help me leave heart prints.
Heart prints of compassion,
understanding and love.
Heart prints of kindness and genuine concern.
May my heart touch a lonely neighbor...
or a runaway daughter...
or an anxious mother...
or perhaps a dear friend!
I shall go out today...
to leave heart prints...
and if some one should say...
"I felt your touch!
May that one sense YOUR LOVE
Touching them through ME!

"I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again." ~William Penn
