Please Remember

Please Remember

please remember we live in a world

where people hold open doors for strangers.

and a little kid was just adopted. 

and someone just fell in love.

and someone is giving blood.

and today is a happy couple’s 50th wedding anniversary.

and tomorrow a man will pay for the person’s coffee behind him in line.

and yesterday a brand new baby was born.

and good things are happening

and good things are happening

and good things will keep on happening. 

there is sun and sunshine and yellow

somewhere some time somehow.

please remember we live in a world

where people hold open doors for strangers.

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” Roald Dahl
