Today, I start volunteering for Hospice again after a short break. There are people counting on people like me to come and visit. The number one reason someone requests a hospice volunteer is quite simply because they are lonely. Isn’t that heartbreaking? I too feel lonely and wish magically there would be someone there when I am feeling low or happy or excited or just simply want to share some thoughts. My message today is simple. Be there for someone today. Make them feel heard or appreciated, understood or loved. Our time here is short and it is so sad to think we exist with so many people in this world and still can feel entirely alone. Make a difference in someone’s life today. Be the difference.
Today my nephew is two years old. It’s so hard to believe, that not so long ago, he wasn’t even thought of. It’s so amazing how one tiny person can grow a family so big. One single person can make such a significant difference in the whole picture.
Today I am reminded that we all have value. Each and every one of us is so special and contributes to a family, society and the world in our own unique way.
We all matter. We all serve a purpose. Make your purpose a great one and let your mission in life be to leave this world a little better off than the moment you entered it.
