Take 5 minutes

. . . and make someone’s day.

It can be really easy. Send an e-mail to a friend telling them how much something they said recently resonated with you. Buy a treat for your kids. (I stopped at the corner store and got blueberries and black grapes for mine — and the boy just got home and gave me an enormous hug when he saw them.) If you see something that needs doing — do it. Wave to your neighbors. Little things matter.

We all love it when others think of us. I can’t begin to tell you all how much your encouragement earlier this week has meant to me. (I’m still not up to writing, but I’m getting there.) Thank you.

  1. This is a really good idea, thanks.

  2. I’m a total space cadet so often don’t think of doing little things, but ever since making an effort to do so, I’ve found that even a few nice words can make the difference between a bad day and a great day for someone.

    • And it’s not an easy habit to cultivate when I’m feeling down, but I think it’s totally worth it.

      Thanks for commenting, Alex!
