It Only Takes A Moment

It only takes a moment For our lives to change forever, Perhaps a turn for the worse Or maybe a climb for the better. It only takes a moment To inspire someone to fly, To teach them to believe They can touch the sky. It only takes a moment To show someone you care, To let them know You’ll always be there. It only takes a moment To reach out a hand, To touch someone’s heart And give them courage to stand. It only takes a moment To turn a stranger into a friend, To show them a warm smile A message of peace you will send. It only takes a moment To thank God for each day, For blessing us with treasures That faithfully guide our way.

I wrote one years ago that is strikingly similar to this, though not quite as eloquent as yours. I do not have it typed, so next time I look through my writing book, I will put it on here. I know there is a section that says that I'll find I've made a friend by sharing one small smile.

We can all take a moment to appreciate what has been God's gift. Nicely said! ~Carrie

We waste so much time worrying about little things that sometimes we forget to countour blessings. This poem holds much truth. Sometimes just a smile can change a life. God Bless. Vince
