If only….

I wonder what this world could be if only we put into it just a little more each day.  I wonder what we could achieve if we supported each other just a tad more as we went along, tolerated that neighbour for just one more day and just bit our tongue one last time.  I wonder what we could achieve if we all just stepped away from ourselves, to really actually help others just a little more.  Not for recognition of a job well done and not for instant gratification of any sorts but simply just because.

Imagine winning the lottery and not telling a soul.  THEN>>>>  imagine donating it all to the cause dearest to your heart and not telling a soul.  Just because you know it will have more use elsewhere.  Doing it, really, simply, honestly, because you wanted to and because it was dear to you.

Not all of use will win the lottery, but can we not start with just an anonymous donation?  How about some volunteer work at the shelter nearby?  No money?  no time??  smiles perhaps for the little old lady you cross every morning coming off the subway?  A hand to the young mother going up steep steps with her hands full and a trolley?

I wonder, I really do truly wonder what this world could be like if we just took the time to understand it just a little more.
