I have a friend that does something for me, every single day. It doesn't cost them any money and takes only about 10 seconds of their time.
Yet, this seemingly little thing, causes me to smile and to have a better day. They may not even be aware that this little thing...brings me such pleasure.
I won't even tell you what this little thing is, because it doesn't matter...to you anyway...but, it matters a great deal to me.
It does cause me to step back and wonder what I do, to improve this person's day. Am I as good of a friend to them, as they are to me? Is there something that I do everyday, that causes them to smile and know that they matter to someone else?
Sometimes we get so caught up in life, that we forget to feed those important relationships in our lives. Sometimes we just assume that other people know how much we care. Sometimes we get so bogged down in our own lives and our own situations, that we forget that other people have their own trials, that they are battling.
So, thank you, my friend, for taking that small amount of time out of your day, to let me know you care. Sometimes, life seems like an uphill climb...thank you for not making me climb it alone.
