Have you ever, all of a sudden, just felt extremely grateful for something? So much so that it brought tears to your eyes? Maybe it made you realize that this ‘something‘ made life, and all of the pain and struggles, worth it?
Have you ever had someone say or do something that made feel so special that you never forgot it? Did you tell them about the difference it made in your life?
Are there people in your life that you tend to take for granted, and all of a sudden they surprise you by telling you they really love something about you, and that it’s really meaningful to them?
Normally, I start feeling these things after I’ve had a couple glasses of wine, but recently things like this have been happening to me, or maybe I’ve just started noticing them more. Maybe it’s my age, or maybe I’m hanging around the right people. It sure has made me look back at my life and the people who have made me feel special at one time or another. Maybe I should reach out and tell them. I know how amazing it felt to have someone tell me that something I did or said made an impact on their life. I don’t think we really take the time to think about these things and how important it is to thank them, or just be grateful…
I’m sure you’re thinking of someone, right now, who made a difference in your life. Especially someone who did the tiniest little thing, or said just one thing, that you have never forgotten. Wouldn’t it mean the world to them if you just randomly sent them a message and told them about it? I bet that person has no idea how important it was to you.
