Touching


There are many ways you can touch someone. You can touch them physically by holding their hand or giving them a hug. You can touch them by being a friend and just listening to them to help them work through their issues in life. You can touch someone remotely with an e-mail, phone call or a letter. You can touch someone by volunteering to help your community and maybe never even see or know the person you are touching.

One of the most gratifying things in my life is to have someone come up to me and say, "I don't know where I read this or heard this but you need to know....." and then they say something that I have taught or written in the past. I never take credit when that happens because my credit is silently knowing that I have touched that person in a way that no one even knows.
