People are full of surprises, though not always the pleasant kind. Just when you think they cannot stoop lower, they do. And things are worse for it.
Others will show an unexpected level of caring. They will look out for someone, even when no one is looking. And that is when you know it is real.
We should hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. Those who care will shine no matter the circumstance. It is the wicked who demand to be trusted.
There is a lot of evil in this world, but just a little good keeps it all in check. Because evil is merely nothing where something should be. Good has substance.
The rain falls on everyone. It can be a refreshing shower, or a depressing downpour. Attitude is the difference between a sunny day and a miserable outing.
Those who make a difference are not even aware of it. They are just being who they really are. And that is the most pleasant surprise there is.
