Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your comments on my last post. I want to make it clear that I was not talking about anyone in particular...or anyone, for this matter, I just needed to share my thoughts and observations on the internet in general. Since I don't often share much of my thoughts here, or at least not at great length, as I am more of a listener than a talker, I wanted to assure you all that this was not directed at anyone. Even when I make comments on other people's blogs, it isn't often that my comments are long, but this is the way I am, just not a big talker...that is, most of the time. LOL! Again, thanks for your comments, I really appreciate it so much.
As far as this post goes, I am sharing a video entitled "The Woodchuck Song"...Tex Beneke, 1946, which I hope you will all enjoy.
The topic for this post is the domino effect. I have noticed that a smile can create a domino effect, and often, as well, a kind word or kind deed. When I go grocery shopping, for example, I often let someone else go ahead of me, especially someone older and/or someone who has less items than myself. Although I don't do a kind deed for the purpose of receiving anything back, and most other folks don't, either, sometimes it happens that someone will do the same for me...or something else, such as hold the door.
When we say a kind word or do a kind deed for someone else I really think that it benefits ourselves as well...it makes us feel better. Have you ever felt that you look really tired or bad, and then someone tells you that you look good? It has happened to me, and I must say it really changes my thought for the day.
The photo I am sharing today is some art that I found on the wall of a school playground. Hope you like it. :) I took this photo in April, 2011. You just need to click on the photo to see a larger view.
