I love this quote! —–>” You can never do a kindness to soon because you never know how soon it will be too late”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
This one is a personal favorite of mine. None of us are ever assured of what will happen next in our lives. We don’t know when we might lose someone near and dear to us. We also don’t know when our time on this planet is finished.
There’s no better time than the present to let someone know how much you love them and care about them. There’s no better time than now to do a kind deed for someone or maybe offer them help.
Everyone will only pass this way once, and we have just this life to do the best that we can for ourselves, for other people around us and if possible to help others less fortunate than ourselves around the world.
How sad it would be if we had years to make amends to someone, but didn’t , or even just mend a broken relationship, but never tried. Life is so short!
Let the people you love, know it, and do it now. Hug your children now, and do it often. Is there a friend you haven’t spoken to in years? How about giving them a call?
Try to help someone in need. Do a kindness for a stranger. There are so many ways that we can connect to our fellow human beings.
We are all on this giant blue ball in space. We are all brothers and sisters to each other. No matter where we live, no matter our circumstances, we are all connected to each other in an inescapable way.
So take some time to spread some love and cheer. We are not guaranteed anything, we are not guaranteed tomorrow, so show some kindness and love, and do it now before you lose your chance.
In a way it is like these lovely pink peonies. They bloom in such gorgeous abundance, but only once a year. They can only flourish if they’ve been nurtured and cared for. If they don’t receive enough water, if there is too much sun, or maybe too little. If the winter is too harsh or the soil too poor, they may not come back again.
We must care for these flowers. We must care for the gardens that contain them. We must care for each other and make sure that we as a world, we as human beings are nourished from within our souls as well as our bodies, and try to do our best to help others to enjoy these same pleasures and ideals that we are so lucky to have.
Again….. “You can never do a kindness to soon because you never know how soon it will be too late”
