Talking Do me this one Thing, Please !

This old world has a lot of pain in it at times, but this time Lets turn the tide on it, Find just one person and really Listen to them for a few minutes, watch the pain dissipate from their eyes, when you are done, give them a Hug. Go about your life, Thank You for Taking the time to Cheer up my Sister or Brother and taking time to smell the "Roses", thorns and all, Have a "MAIDRITE DAY"

Thumbs up

James, you are one alright guy!! Done!! Today, I talked to a friend of mine who recently injured her eye. So, she told me everything that happened and I listened patiently until she finished. I felt bad for her. An eye injury is a serious matter. Luckily, the eye will be fine once the swelling and pain goes away. I couldn't see her face, but I could tell she felt better after talking about it.

I was taught to say please and thank you and I passed those lessons on to my children.

My smile is free, I give it away everyday. You'll never know when your smile will brighten the day of someone who really needs it. My Koapaka likes to give out smiles also.

What a very nice thing to start. I'll try to remember that. I've been so swamped with my grandaughter's problems, I've hardly noticed anyone else.I will certainly think about your post and do something about it.

This is the real Christmas spirit James, the christmas spirit that we should carry about within ourselves throughout the year. That will make everyone a bit merrier. Thanks for the wonderful message, bless you!!

And thanks for that radiating smile, Koapaka, you made my day!!

That person hugged me!! I hugged back and the day just seemed to sparkle!! Thank you James...

I am so proud of my sweetie--I'm glad he started this. Don't tell James that I told you all this but everything you see on here from him is the real James. He is truly one of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever met.

Lucky Lady Barbara L! Lucky Lady! My older brother (soon to be known as TXguy as soon as we get his account working) is the sweetest guy too! The only way to get his temper flared is to mess up his stuff or bug him.

I can't wait to meet your brother! James is the same way--the only way to get him angry is to mess with me, our daughters, or my best friend Christi (who is also his good friend).
