Rainy day

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

Yesterday, our church knitting ministry presented Cole a blanket which they prayed over as they knit.  While the person creating the blanket may only know we are parishioners and Cole has medical issues, they still cared enough to give of themselves for a stranger.  Truly, these gestures mean so much on our road.  

Sometimes I think our world moves so fast, our days are so packed with activity we sometimes spend so much time thinking of the big picture we don't stop to focus on the tiny details, and without the little pieces, the rest is out of focus.

Smile at someone today.  Listen completely today.  Appreciate the small stuff today.  Tell someone how much you care about them.  Give an extra hug at bedtime just because.  Stop to jump in the puddles and dance in the rain.  What is small to you, is tremendous to another.
