Sometimes, "little" things aren't.I have many, many opportunities at Edgewood to do - or see others doing - "little" things: *opening a door *sharing a smile *pulling out a chair *speaking a kind word *checking the mail *rubbing a shoulder The list goes on and on. Lots of little things which seem rather insignificant. Until, you see the other side. This week I was talking to my grandmother and she told me about one of the aides who comes to care for her. Grandma mentioned the things this woman does - which are all part of her job - and said how much she appreciates her help. Then a certain sparkle appeared in her eyes when she said, "AND, she stays a few minutes longer to talk to me."That's when I realized the sparkle actually came from the tears welling up in Grandma's eyes. And I could see how very deeply it touched her that someone stuck around for a few minutes just to spend time with her. In a world of people rushing around to get this and that done, someone took time to notice my grandma, and it meant so much to her.Grandma's aide probably thought she was doing a little thing. But that isn't the way my grandmother saw it. To her, that little thing was HUGE. As you go through your day today - and tomorrow - and all the rest of the days of your life - may I encourage you to do the "little" things? You just never know what a difference you may be making in the world. Sometimes, "little" things aren't.
