I LOVE this quote. I am a collector of quotes and when I find one I like to jot them down and save them to pull out later to ponder. When I saw this one I wished I had ben the one to write it and get credit for it.
People do appreciate the small gestures. When the boys were little I always tried to lead by example and instill in them manners that would carry them through life. Chris has always been a gentleman and of course his example was ever present in their lives. After all—I fell in love with him when I discovered he always had a clean handkerchief for me to use in case of tears. (Me, cry? Never. 🙂 )
Think about it. How does it make you feel when someone goes out of their way to hold a door open for you?
How do you feel when someone allows you to go ahead of them in a long line when you only have one or two items to buy?
Do you feel extra special when someone tells you how nice you look in a certain color?
Tonight I overtipped, By a lot. It felt great.
People get so caught up in life and it is so busy and hectic for so many people. I understand that many people really do carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. Times are tough for a lot of folks and it is a struggle every single day. That is what makes me want to do those little things that just make a tiny difference in the day of someone whose path I cross.
I want the world to feel a bit lighter. A bit like Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.
My wish for you today is that you find one way today to make a small difference in someone’s day. Make an effort. It will feel good.
