A chance encounter in Fondo, Italy. An old lady had fallen inside a gift shop..I was concerned for her and went across after she had been helped up onto a chair...She patted MY hand and reassured me as I was upset for her..I couldn't understand her words..but the tone of her voice, and her actions spoke volumes...priceless... experience..

 

 

A chance encounter
that meant so much
Old Italian Lady,
with such a gentle touch.
I wanted to help
yet she comforted me,
I know what I gave
helped her -

But helped me.
A warmth and compassion
I'll never forget.
her eyes full of living
And wisdom -
A debt, I can never repay
For that beautiful day,
When two strangers passed by..

Both with Love in their eye.

Seems to me anyone who looks with such awareness has no debt to repay because it is an equal 'exchange.' We never know what our eyes can do for someone in only an instant and to only a stranger.

These kinds of moments in life are so meaningful. Isn't it wonderful how we can touch (and be touched) in seemingly small ways that stay with us for a very long time. A beautiful encounter of humanity. ~Hugs, Elizabeth

A chance encounter, Diana, but one that lives on in these
lovingly penned words and, I suggest, in the heart of the
Old Italian Lady you comforted on that day she fell inside
the gift shop. -gene.

Just living in the moment, that is what you did, and you embraced it and captured something very special between two beautiful spirts.

Sounds like it was an amazing experience..I am happy for you.

The reaching out of a hand to someone in need, whether such a simple gesture as this or a life giving organ donation, does touch our hearts and memories forever. Some of my favorite memories in my life are the times I did volunteer work for the needy...

Isn't it something how a smile, a pat on the hand, or some other small gesture can speak the universal language of friendliness toward mankind. I think it was meant for us all to be this way toward one another. And if this could be, then the world we inhabit would be such a happier place for all. It's so nice to read you once again, Diana. Your writing speaks volumes about your character.

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader)
Sometimes it is the unexpected which linger inside our hearts forever. I have had my "Old Italian Lady" moments. It is then that you realize what life is really all about. For most of us, however, we forget too soon and continue our way through the world as we did before that wonderful encounter.
