Here I Am, Send Me, Send Me

When you give of yourself, you give the best thing you can give.  Your time is worth a lot more than your money.  Children know this, parents know this, significant others know this.  Also those without family members who can come and see them and take them places know this.

Be fully present when you are present.  It does not count when you are multitasking at the same time.  When I have your attention, I want to have your full attention.  When you listen to me, listen to me.  When you are watching me, watch me.  Don’t be thinking about what you are going to say or do next.  We all want to be heard and seen.  Doing the former is sometimes called active listening.  Can you truthfully say that when you are having a conversation with someone, that you know what they are saying?  Can you repeat what was said to you?  You don’t have to agree with me, but at least be able to tell me what I have told you.

I am your friend; I am your family, or you may know about me because you have been touched by my plight.  Put yourself in my place.  Visit me.  Don’t forget that I exist.  Yes, you may have to go out of your way to do this.  Think of me often.  Remember you are in my thoughts too.  You may not know of the extent of the impact that you have on another when you give of yourself.or pay it forward.  Do something nice for someone you don’t know.  A waitress where I went this week, told me that a couple that comes to the restaurant that she works at often chooses another table in the restaurant and pays for their meal; thus they pay it forward.
