What a necessity for life.
And when we are without, we can only last a few seconds up to 4 minutes.
A barely flickering flame needs oxygen. Sometimes we call it nurturing the flame.
People need oxygen too, and not just in the air we breathe. We need it in the form of a word of esteem and a word of hope.
And you and I hold that oxygen in our hands every day. With every person we meet, we can either say words of hope and encouragement, or words of ill will.
Your next wait person at the restaurant needs oxygen-like words of appreciation and kindness. So does your mailman, your grocery clerk, and your minister/priest/rabbi.
Even your spouse and kids, especially your spouse and kids need to hear those life-giving words for which they thirst
Will you bring life to someone nearby today?
I hope so.
And may you receive in like manner in which you give
Be well today.
