caring (haiku) Daily Moments September 8/16

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
― Leo Buscaglia

Walking to work, I used to wish  “Bonne Journée” to a stranger sitting outside his apartment building on a chair outside. This week he shouted out, “Bonne Journée, Madame!” and what a fine day that was for me!
