I felt the smile behind her mask. Even though I couldn’t see it, it didn’t matter. Her smile gave warmth and comfort to me at a time I really needed it.
One smile has the power to do all that.
Can you remember a time you were feeling scared or anxious and someone lifted you up with a kind, compassionate word or act?
Every act of kindness and compassion big or small is filled with power, an energy so uplifting it overcomes fear, even if for a moment. Kind, compassionate thoughts and actions in the face of fear are heroic.
