The Little Things Can Mean So Much

A while back I wrote an entry entitled “Do You Know You’re A Mentor?”   In it I discussed how you never know how much you may mean to someone unless they tell you and how important it is to let others in your life know how much they have meant to you.

That being said, I found this today and it just made me smile and really reinforced my feelings on this even further.  Everything counts, whether we realize it or not.

I hope it brings you the same smile it brought me.




Parents were away for a month. Mail carrier kept our mail until they came back. Mom gave her a gift basket and got this note. Makes you think about the battles people have each day. And how the little things can make a difference. (Story, image via imgur, Reddit)

Your thoughtfulness is appreciated beyond explanation in words. I recently got divorced after 25 years of marriage and after being homeless for the last three years just last week got my own apartment. You literally put the first food in my cupboards! And for that I am so grateful!! Serving people like you makes my job so rewarding. And it’s a daily pleasure! May God bless you & keep you safe at home and in your travels, always.

Thank you so much!!

Hugs & Blessings,
