Sometimes I think people take advantage of my good nature. I smile easily. I have a joyful spirit and I try to believe the best about people. I’m not a high-powered, driven type. I’m sometimes tempted to be more serious and sober when people take advantage of me…. When that happens I get a note like the one I received from a neighbor today. Here is what it said:
“… this morning I saw you walking. I said to my kids; ‘he’s always smiling, I want to be more like that.’
…my little guy says; ‘He must have Jesus in his heart because when you do you always have a reason to smile.’
That is so true. Today I am thanking you for your silent reminder that I need more Jesus and less me to lead a happier life… Keep smiling, you never know the difference you will make!”
Thanks Kim Hohmann you made me smile… and cry a little.
