While walking on the beach this past week, my husband and I were approached by three young girls. They asked if we’d like to pick a free seashell from the vast assortment they’d collected and carried in two small pails and a net. I didn’t want to take a shell because I was talking and preferred not to have to carry it while we walked. I thanked them for their offer and politely declined.
But as the three young girls made their way down the shore extending the same offer to other vacationers. I kicked myself for the missed opportunity… for not slowing down… for not participating in their adventure… for not saying yes.
There are times in our lives when a simple yes can change a few moments in someone’s day. That someone might be you.
It’s Monday… will you say yes?
