It was not without its challenges and there were several things that didn't go as I'd planned. But this week also brought me several "little things" that made a HUGE difference in how I made it through. Here are just five of them:
Little thing #1: I got an email from a friend asking me out to dinner.
Little thing #2: A friend told me that he's praying for me.
Little thing #3: I got a thoughtful text from someone just saying that she was thinking about me.
Little thing #4: My close childhood friend called me just to share a laugh about something silly.
Little thing #5: My cat licked my cheek.
I thank God for these little gestures that meant so very, very much. And I'm especially grateful for the ability to notice them.
My prayer is that something I do or say will somehow turn someone's rough week into one that they can reflect upon fondly. I want to be somebody's "little thing,"
