What have you done today that planted beauty in your heart, or in the heart of someone else’s?
On the way back from Huntington Beach to Stanton I saw a lady fiddling through her purse going through receipts and papers and organizing things as I find myself often doing.
She was oblivious to everything around her. It took a long while for her to make eye contact with me.
I was reading the newest issue of Women’s World magazine, and love the article in the magazine, which are always uplifting and insightful. I asked her (Darlene was her name), if she would like to read the new Family Circle I just bought.
I saw her face look with a surprise and then a huge smile came on her face.
I intended on her simply reading it and handing it back to me once I got off the bus a half hour later. By the time it was my turn to get off, she had the most peaceful happy and content look on her face, I didn’t want to ruin that.
I did some good and knew it.
