What if you had a magic wand?

What if you had a magic wand? 

It would be wonderful...right?

But what if the wand had a catch.  What if you could only use it for other people? You couldn't do a single act of magic for yourself?

I think in some ways we do have a magic wand.  We have the ability to make the lives of every person we interact with just a little bit better.


  • Smiles can be miracles.  They remind us that the world is a friendly place. 
  • Assistance can be a gift. It reminds us that we aren't alone. 
  • Gifts of time remind us that we are thought of and have friends. 

You do have a magic wand.  And, you have the power to use it.
