The other night, as I was searching for ideas for Christmas, I stumbled on this plaque that just made me smile. To some, it may be sappy. To some, it may be overdone. But for me - it just put into words how I hope each day will be perceived and then I know I did something right.
If you planted hope today in any hopeless heart,
If someone's burden was lighter because you did your part,
If you caused a laugh that chased a tear away,
If tonight your name is mentioned, when someone kneels to pray,
Then your day was well spent.
Go out today and plant a little hope to everyone you meet so that you too can say your day was well spent.
