One night we took 4 homeless people from the street. One of them was in critical condition. I knew I probably could not save her life but I still took care of her with what my love for life can do. I put her in bed and there was such a beautiful smile on her face. She took my hand as she said her last words, “Thank you.”
I asked myself, “what would I say if I were in her place?” I thought I would probably had said something so that I can draw a little more attention to myself. I could have said, “I am hungry, I am cold, I am in pain, or even I am dying.” But this lady gave me much more—she gave me her grateful love. She died with a smile on her face.
When you have something to say, say it concisely. If words are useless, don’t say anything at all. Don’t interrupt when people are talking. If you really need to be heard, ask for permission first. Don’t ask questions that you know will embarrass others. Don’t monopolize the conversation. Leave a chance for others to participate.
