Simple Things

A Thought for Today

"Too often
we underestimate the power
of a touch,
a smile,
a kind word,
a listening ear,
an honest compliment,
or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential
to turn a life around."
~Leo Buscaglia

I'm happy that you found strength through the kindness of strangers when you felt alone :)

Happy Holidays to all along with my usual

What a beautiful (and true) thought. I have always admired Leo Buscaglia--he was a man who truly seemed to know how to love people.

I SO agree. Completely and wholeheartedly. This is a wonderful quote. So glad you posted it.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I've been an admirer of Leo's teachings for many years too.

I've been wondering what you're up to this Sunday because I haven't seen any posts on your Blog today. Hope all's well and that you're enjoying your sunny summer weather while the rest of us shiver :)
Hugs and blessings to you both,
