A sunny day, a good friend, a lift in spirits.

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Sometimes it’s easy to forget how the simple act of spending time with someone is also a way to spread hope.

I was feeling a little gloomy, and my friend Gabe invited me for a walk. I wasn’t too interested, but he insisted.

So, we walked, and in just a few minutes, I was reminded of how beautiful it was outside. I was reminded that DOING beats complaining any day of the week.

AND, I got this impromptu picture from his mobile phone that shows just how uplifting reaching out to someone can be.

A good friend brightens the day.

So, I invite you to drop in on someone. Reconnect with an old friend. Or write a short note and mail it. What a different world it would be if everyone made just one connection like this.
