"Don't write your name on the sand, waves will wash it away.
Don't write your name on the sky, winds may blow it away.
Write your name in the hearts of people you come in contact with,
That is where it will stay."
Who was the last person who wrote their name on your heart?
For me, it was the elderly gentleman who was bagging the groceries I purchased last week.
The checkout lines were long.
A snowstorm was in the forecast.
People seemed uptight and hurried, complaining why more lanes were not opened.
Quietly, efficiently, and with a smile he filled each bag with groceries. His sense of humor
and kind words caught my attention. Suddenly, I refocused from the endless list of things
waiting to be done, that was running through my mind, and I found myself laughing out loud
at his witty comments. I told him that he was the perfect person for the job, and thanked him
for brightening my day. I was still chuckling at what he said and the way he said it, as I left
the store. Even when I discovered that two cars were sitting waiting for my parking space,
eager to see which one would win. Yes, there are unexpected ways and people that will
"write their names" on our hearts.
