The Print You Leave Behind

Often we never know what kind of impact we have on others.  Those moments usually fade away with little thought on our part.  Sometimes those same moments make an impression on someone we may or may not know.

A young boy stood before a gathering of boys and men and shared a small part of himself, just because he felt like he should.  A young man in the crowd heard, felt, and was touched.  He happened to share that experience in a ward Sunday meeting.  It was that moment that had the most impact on him through a week of activities.  Someone in that meeting was a friend of my parents.

We seldom realize the extent of our reach.  We think what we say and do is of no consequence to others.  Well, it is of great consequence.

We just never know.........
