The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. | Source

I'm convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they're stones that don't matter. As long as you're breathing, it's never too late to do some good. Maya Angelou

It's Never Too Late

It’s never too late

To start a new day

To relish each moment

To carve a new way


To say “I forgive you”

To let it all go

To love one another

To learn and to grow


It’s never too late

To lend a kind hand

To someone in need

Who feels he’s been banned


To dry falling tears

Or comfort a heart

To strengthen the weak

When their worlds torn apart


It’s never too late

To sing a new song

To smile through the tears

When things do go wrong


So stay on your journey

And fill up your plate

Just keep on believing

It’s never too late.

Comfort a Broken Heart

        Hi Ann

        I picture you walking along the seafront and wishing I were there to enjoy such a beautiful experience. Acknowledging others with a pleasant "hello" is a kind gesture...good for you!

        Beautiful! You've said it all, Audrey.

        I walk along the seafront almost every day and each time I say hello to as many others as possible. Most reciprocate or at least smile and that butterfly effect is good!

        This poem is definitely at the right time for inspiration. Helping the homeless is one of my values. I live in the moment and enjoy what I have I am happy and a positive person. I think that in this year one has to do for themselves to improve or progress on what they want from life. True words from a talented writer.

        Hi Liz

        The message from the Archbishop of Canterbury is one that has crossed my mind this week. It's all too common to get caught up in the many demands of daily living and lose contact with others.

        Thanks for sharing this important reminder.

        Dear Ruby,

        It's very difficult to "smile through your tears", especially in our case where we both miss our sons so much. I try to steer my thoughts about my boy to some funny experience we shared together. This helps - sometimes.

        I wish you less pain in this New Year. Sending love and big hugs.

        This is an inspirational poem for this time of year. In the UK, the Archbishop of Canterbury has given a New Year message in which he suggests we should all be contacting others that we don't get on with to build bridges and promote unity.
