He was one special man and an angel for sure. If only everyone followed his example and gave back in some small way, what a wonderful world it would be. Giving doesn't have to be monetary. A smile or a kind word is free. Sitting with an elderly person while they tell their stories is fun and educational.

Giving is catchy. If I have done something for someone I always tell them that I got more out of it than they did because it makes me feel good to give. If they ask what they can do for me I only tell them to pay a kindness forward. Maybe, Elvis loved the "buzz" of giving like I do.

I love this small poem I learned many years ago. The author is unknown:

Smile, it happens in a flash, but the memory of it lasts forever
it cannot be begged, borrowed or stolen
it is of no earthly good to anyone until it is given away
so, if in your hurry you meet someone to weary to smile
give him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite
as much as he who has none to give.

It takes 17 muscles to smile and 43 to frown
