You may never know how you affect another person when you send out a greeting on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+. Let me share with you my personal experience of the last few days.
We have endured rainy weather for many days. The trees, still dressed in green, don’t have that brilliant shine the sun gives them. The whole environment is rather dull.
Thank God we have friends who share their sunshine with us. I appreciate the sunrise pictures that LIz Strauss posts in the morning. Chicago seems to have more sun than we do in New Hampshire. Today was one of those days when I borrowed Liz’s sun for motivation.
Some people say I am over exuberant, but that’s just me. I appreciate every person I meet and every greeting I share. You just never know how your smile may affect someone.
Yesterday I went to the hospital for some tests. When you get older, you have to have checkups like cars have oil changes. As I was entering the hospital, I noticed a forlorn looking lady sitting by the door waiting for transportation. She looked at me. I looked her in the eye and smiled the biggest smile I had. She instantly transformed into a beautiful lady. She sat up straight and looked totally different. YES! Life is good.
Because of my allergies, we recently gave our beloved cats, Spade and Diamond, to Whitney Hoffman and her family. We know they are well taken care of and most importantly they are loved, but we still miss them. Tweets like this help a lot: @dianebrogan furry child ready for his nightly snuggle t.co/xY94pkDY
I have given two Twitter examples and one real life example of interactions with people. The point being, you don’t know how much your act of kindness can bless another person.
Twitter is one of the greatest things that ever happened to me. I learn a great deal by clicking on links presented to me. I often know more about what is happening in the world before it hits the TV news. Most importantly, I have made friends on Twitter.
I could write a book length post if I were to highlight each of my Twitter friends and how important they are to me and how they enhance my life. Instead, let me say I appreciate every pet picture, every kid picture, every nature picture, every food picture, and every tweet you send.
Whenever I see some ambitious, ladder climbing individual saying Twitter should only be used for business, I cringe. That poor person has lost part of their human kindness.
I think the WWW is big enough for all of us. What do you think?
