Count That Day Lost by George Eliot
If you sit down at set of sun
And count the acts that you have done,
And, counting, find
One self-denying deed, one word
That eased the heart of him who heard,
One glance most kind
That fell like sunshine where it went --
Then you may count that day well spent.

But if, through all the livelong day,
You've cheered no heart, by yea or nay --
If, through it all
You've nothing done that you can trace
That brought the sunshine to one face--
No act most small
That helped some soul and nothing cost --
Then count that day as worst than lost.  

I believe that with very little effort, you can change the day for some one else. 
It could be a smile, a friendly word, a helping hand, 
a cup of coffee--, a walk in the park.  or just to visit a lonely soul.
 What ever you do , do it with a good attitude,
 a positive way, a smile and let the light shine through.

Love and light, Rona
