"You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our Sunday School class gets email messages with the names of shut-ins who would enjoy getting a card. I got one of those reminders
Finally, Friday night I wrote a short message in the card and addressed it. Saturday morning I mailed it before I left for the football game. (I sort of felt good about myself for doing something nice for someone.)
Sunday in church I found out that the lady I mailed the card to Saturday had died Thursday. I didn't feel so good about myself after that.
If you've been putting off doing something for someone or saying something kind to someone, please don't wait like I did.
