What if today is your last day?

Imagine, this is the last day of your life, how would you act toward others, how short would you be on the phone with your son or daughter if you were reading or watching TV when they called, how would you react if a driver cut you off and blew his horn, what would you say when your spouse was critical of your failing to help with any small favor?  Would you feed a hungry person or give him a shirt if he didn't have a nice one and you had several.

And now if it was your father, mother, child, sibling or best friend’s last day on earth, what would you say, what would you do, if they wanted something, asked for your help, just wanted to see you, what would you do?

Any second could be your last, we know this yet treat each other as if nothing mattered except our own problems, our own wants, and our own self.  One person, one minute at a time we can make this a better world with a positive attitude, thoughtfulness for others and their feelings and offering a helping hand where deserved.
