"...little piece from heart..."

Yesterday I met a stranger...

Today this stranger is my friend.
Had I not taken the time to say hello, or return a smile, or shake a hand, or listen,
I would not have known this person.
Yesterday would have turned into today and our chance meeting would be gone.
Yesterday I hugged someone very dear to me.
Today they are gone... And tomorrow will not bring them back.
Wouldn't it be nice if we all knew tomorrow would be here?
But we don't, so take the time TODAY to give a hug, a smile, an "I love you"...
JUST FOR TODAY, at a stranger
...listen to someone's heart
...drop a coin where a child can find it
...learn something new, then teach it to someone
...tell someone you're thinking of them
...hug a loved one
...don't hold a grudge
...don't be afraid to say "I'm sorry"
...look a child in the eye and tell them how great they are
...don't kill that spider in your house, he's just lost so show him the way out
...look beyond the face of a person into their heart
...make a promise, and keep it someone, for no other reason than to just say "hi" kindness to an animal
...stand up for what you believe in
...smell the rain, feel the breeze, listen to the wind
...use all your senses to their fullest
...cherish all of your TODAYS

Today you were thought about by me....

"wahai sahabat, mahukah engkau bersama denganku, kita berdua berdoa. Yakni aku berdoa akan kehendakku dan engkau meng'aminkannya. Dan selepas itu engkau berdoa akan kehendakmu, dan aku meng'aminkannya. Seperti yang pernah dilakukan oleh dua orang sahabat r.a. Yang akhirnya mereka memperoleh syahid(salah seorang) dan kemenangan di medan perang(salah seorang darinya)seperti kehendak doa masing-masing itu."

Lantas ia bersetuju, dan aku pun berdoa kepada Allah, agar dikurniakan segala kebaikan didunia dan di Akhirat, mohon keampunan atas segala dosa2 ku, segala dosa kedua ibubapaku, saudara2 ku dan sahabat-sahabatku. Lalu dia meng'aminkannya. Dan apabila tiba gilirannya, dia berdoa dengan sangat perlahan, sehingga aku tidak mendengar apakah yang didoakannya. Tetapi aku tetap meng'aminkannya.
