I See You
Hero Husband and I were vacationing recently when I overheard a child saying “Look at me”. We continued walking and just a few seconds later the same child repeated “Look at me”. I smiled and then a third time I heard the child say “Look at me” only this time it was a bit louder…and then just a few moments later I heard the same child scream at the top of their lungs “LOOK AT ME”
I leaned over to Hero Husband and said “I think we all feel like that sometimes”.
We laughed but unfortunately there are times when we feel like no one sees us. During those moments it’s important to remember that our Heavenly Father ALWAYS sees us and we can find the security we need. But today I want to challenge you to SEE those around you. It’s so easy to get caught up in our list of things to do that we don’t take time to look at the people around us. Take a moment today to really see at the people you encounter:
-your family members
-the woman in the checkout line
-the bank teller
-the person sitting next to you
Go ahead - look them in the eye and give them a smile. Maybe share a comment that lets them know “I see you”. Who knows, maybe there’s a little child in there just begging to be seen. Your smile can plant a seed of value. It’s really not hard, if fact, it’s one of the easiest ways to make a difference in someone’s day and spread a little joy.
Get out there and SEE somebody and make an ordinary day, extraordinary.
