What do You live for?
I sat outside my sons school waiting to pick him up. It gave me time to wonder on just what I live for. What do I do in life that will add to the legacy of humankind?
It's simple . . .
It's a smile at anyone who looks up.
It's a pat on the back to a friend or coworker.
My twice weekly 3am walks to my son's bedroom to assure him all is right with the world.
It's a sincere thanks to the kind folks at the drive-through who handle my order.
It's a quarter in the toy machine as we exit the grocery store.
It's a backrub for my love even when I want to sleep.
I will never be president, I most likely won't personally instigate peace in the middle east. However I can create a ripple that will rise like a tsunami and touch people all over the world. I will and I do, each day make a difference in the lives of the people I touch. You do the same. Let's make waves together.
