This week I came across a woman who had beaten the odds. She had been diagnosed with breast cancer, she went through chemo, and came out a survivor. A short time after conquering that destructive disease, she was diagnosed with lung cancer. This time her days are numbered. She had come into the boutique I was in with her husband and small child to pick out an outfit for a family photoshoot that may very well be her last. With her joy and laughter, an outsider would never have known.

While she was being helped, a pregnant woman, due in 4 weeks entered the store.

The entire situation struck me hard. So hard that I had to step off the floor a moment and brush back tears.  I have no words of wisdom or deep insights. No revelations or discovery. What I can tell you is that for me, that moment, that day, will be forever ingrained. It has changed me in ways I do not yet know.
Take joy in life. Please, be kind to one another. You never can never know the darkness another may be in, and what light a small act of kindness can bring.
