I recently took a trip to Europe and my Dad and I went into this beautiful church where there were hardly any people. I saw a woman who was just talking to a statue of Jesus telling him about her entire day just like he was right there to listen, as if he were standing right in front of her. Why can't we all?
While waiting at a stoplight this morning, I noticed a woman on her phone waiting for the bus. She looked up from her phone suddenly, surveyed the ground around her, and then began picking up all of the trash scattered around her. It was a small gesture, but it inspired me to be more aware of my surroundings.
