Remember The Little Things In Life

(The wife of a gentleman I know quite well) was recuperating at home from surgery and maintaining a light schedule. She could move about, but getting up and down and bending were particularly painful. A couple of days after she came home from the hospital he was up early in the morning and went downstairs for a cup of coffee. His favorite cup was in the dishwasher and as he retrieved it he noticed that the dishwasher was full of clean dishes. Remembering that his wife was recuperating, he unloaded the dishwasher. It only took five minutes to complete the job.

After finishing his coffee he went back to the bedroom to get ready for work and left before his wife went to the kitchen. That evening when he returned home she gave him a big hug and thanked him profusely for what he had done. She said, "Honey, I cried when I realized I would not have to bend over all of those times and lift those dishes out." He had made a simple gesture, but it spoke volumes to his wife. It indicated that he genuinely cared for her, her comfort and well being. It was not monumental, but isn't it true that the "little things" make the big difference in life?

Think about it. If your watch is slow by just four minutes, that's not much--unless you've been warned that if you're even one minute late ever again you will be fired. Then four minutes is a lot.
