I saw this plaque hanging in an antique store recently, and though I thought it was a lovely saying, I walked on. But as I continued through the store, the words haunted me. How many times have I considered paying someone a compliment, or stopping a stranger on the street or in a restaurant to say something nice or encouraging, but chose not to because I was too busy, tired, late, grumpy, fill-in-the-blank? Sadly, too many times. So I turned around and bought the plaque, and it’s now hanging in my office.
