In this world of bitterness and strife I cant help but lift my eyes upward and ask why? Then I hear a still small voice tell me “selfishness”. I’m thinking who me? Then I remember a time when I could have smiled at someone and told myself what’s the point. Another time I could have held the door for someone, or made that phone call to a relative I haven’t spoken with in over a year, or visited a dear friend after his wife of 40 years passed away. At this point I realize that the still small voice was actually right. I actually am selfish. As valentines day approaches I am challenged not to look outwardly at other peoples actions but to look inwardly and look at my own. How can I make the world a better place in which to live? It all starts with me and my attitudes and the choices I make every day. Today I choose to smile at that person passing by, today I choose to hold the door for someone, today I choose to make that difficult phone call, today I choose to be a friend to someone in need. Today I choose “LOVE”.
