C is for Caring

C is for caring.
Caring: adj., feeling or showing care or compassion

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo F. Buscaglia

Has anyone ever come to you and said, "Do you remember when..." you did this for me, or you said this to me? "Well, it really made a difference!"

Perhaps, you've never received that feedback. But, I promise you, your acts of caring do not go without notice. They have warmed hearts. They have changed perspectives. They have, quite possibly, turned a life around!
Do you know Randi over at I Have To Say?
Randi is a caring person. And it is my honor to join her in her efforts to provide skirts to little girls in Haiti.

You can learn more about the project here.

Would you like to join in on Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday? If so, just go here!

A very good word to choose today.

I remember one day I was in the grocery store and I always thought the produce department looked very nice, but I had never told anyone. Didn't even occur to me to tell anyone, but on this particular day I was picking out some produce and the produce man was working next to me, so I told him. His reaction surprised me. He was so pleased. I knew by his reaction that I had made his day. I've never forgotten.
