one of the best ways to make one's day special is simply to reach out and touch someone, especially if that someone isexperiencing difficulties in his/her life.... naks! (ayos ba opening line ko? hakhak!)
the amazing thing about reaching out is that it actually does not require great effort. all one needs is a sincere desire to spread sunshine, so to speak and elicit a smile if not laughter from the person one cares for. reaching out means holding out your hand, extending our hearts and telling our friend in a concrete way: ' I AM HERE FOR YOU!' reaching out may not even require so many words; at many times, just making our presence felt more than suffices.
nothing beats a personal appearance when it comes to reaching out. to be physically present conveys the imporatnce with how you regard a friend, by being physically present, we are in effect saying, "I have set a time to visit you because you mean so much to me."
but then, since people have different ways of communicating their feelings, many choose to forego a personal appearance. but this is not because they do not care for their friend. many cannot articulate their feelings about problems so they choose to keep distance which doesnt mean that they are not reaching out, for they are trtying their best to make it up in other ways. prayers, food, text, missed calls..etc.. they have reached out in their own intentions and deeds..
