There's nothing like being down on your luck, ill, or even a special event to awaken you to the power of compassion.
Today I unexpectedly became ill. And, I was met with considerable compassion.
Yesterday I was celebrating a milestone, and at that happy event, I was also met with compassion.
A while ago, a family emergency, found me surrounded by compassion.
To experience compassion is to learn compassion, and to learn compassion is to be compassionate.
Now the challenge is to pay all that wonderful compassion forward--a positive challenge. Onward.
