What if?

-A A +A

What would you do “if” given the chance to do something good?
    When would you try to accomplish that task “if” time wasn’t a hindrance? Who would you try to help “if” money wasn’t a concern?
    Where would you go “if” you had the opportunity to go anywhere?
    How would you use an extra day “if” given those seconds, minutes and hours?
    What if?
    Well, today’s your day.
    It’s Feb. 29—a day that only rolls around once every four years.
    It’s an extra day on your calendar; it’s an extra 24 hours to get something done; it’s opportunity waiting to happen.
    What will you do?
    Who are you going to visit today that you keep saying you need to see, but haven’t made the time?
    What letter are you going to write to that friend or family member that needs a word of encouragement?
    What random act of kindness will you decide to perform for someone you don’t even know?
    The possibilities are endless.
    You don’t have to have a lot of money—just dial that number and make the call, or sit down with a piece of paper and write that note.
    You don’t have to go half-way across the world to help somebody out—there’s a friend just down the road  who would love a visit.
    You don’t even have to have a lot of extra time—baking cookies for a neighbor doesn’t take that long to do.
    What if?
    You can make somebody smile today—and have hours left over for something else.
    Today you’ve got an extra 24 hours—a gift given once every four years, a gift given to you that you can share with someone else.
    What will you do with that time? It would be a shame to waste it.
