Sharing the Kindness 😊

Have You Earned Your Tomorrow

 

 

Is anybody happier because you passed his way?

Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today?

This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through;

Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

 

Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along?

Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng?

Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way,

Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?

 

Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast,

That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed?

Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said;

Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?

 

Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent?

Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent?

As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say,

You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

 

~Edgar Guest

 

 

📕 This poem is one to get us all thinking, as we move further forward into the new year.

Maybe by the close of 2019, we will all be little angels 😅😇

 

Well my friends... I hope you’re off to a good start ?

... Resolutions made (and not yet broken)

... Left over chocolate and cake binned (and not retrieved)

... Exercise regime began (walking over to switch teli on, doesn’t count)

 

Start as we mean to go on........ and let’s see if we make it to February 😂

 

💖 Enjoy your Sunday dear friends ~ and let’s all do our best to “share the kindness”, as much and as often and in as many ways as we can !! xoxox
