Vince and I went to the fire station to drop off a thank you gift for fighting the holy fire. They were really sweet and gave Vince a tour of the station and showed him their fire trucks. We hope our little gesture made their day because they definitely made Vince’s day so much better.. also the box was filled with things Vince thought a firefighter needs lol #holyfire#showinggratitude#littlegestures
Spending the afternoon with dear friends and these two little happy cuties aking durring a hard goodbye "please come with us in holiday tomorrow", then finding back home a thank you card and gifts from my housmate, have washed away dark clouds and doubghts from a rainy week 🌈☀️🌖🌟♥️
#littlegestures make my world go round. I'm finally sitting down after a morning of #adulting to a rich dark cuppa at my computer & I find the coffee already ground by love before he left for the day. #besweet . #itmatters . Jam
Grand gestures sure do get my attention, and perk me up, yet I find that small gestures, little movements, and daily choices that I make have a huge impact on my overall well being.
I find joy in watching the parts inside of us rearrange with each little change and shift. “When you know better, you do better”. Or it begins to haunt me. You don’t have to install solar panels tomorrow, maybe you can just switch your straws and toothbrushes, or plant your favorite food and watch it grow. It doesn’t have to overwhelm. Just pay attention to what would feel good, or what needs tending to. Sometimes I need to try something new, and move out of a comfort zone or pattern. 💙
I remember when I was hospitalized after eduring a tragic pedestrian/auto accident that left me handicapped and wheelchair bound, with 29 fractures. I remember getting a Salisbury steak while at Butterworth, sitting there looking at it, wondering how I was supposed to eat it with one working arm. As a young gentleman was passing by to visit his sister on the same floor, he stopped at the entrance of my room peering in at me staring intently at my meal, as I wondered how in the world I was going to eat it. He slowly entered, and asked if I needed help cutting up my steak, as I looked up at him, tears welling up in my eyes, I nodded 'yes'. He proceeded to cut up my little 4 oz meal, with me staring hungrily at it, and told me to enjoy. He left me to gobble up my meal, as it had been days since I was able to even eat anything, let alone have an appetite. The moral of the story is, I was finally able to have some normalcy in my life, as simplistic as eating a meal, yet handicapped to even do so. It has been over 18 years since then, yet I remember the heart touching gesture a stranger made while visiting the hospital. It's made a fond memory in my heart, that even strangers can give a memory that lasts a lifetime, while someone is dealing with a life changing event. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, young man, whomever you are..... #LittleGestures#Kindness#TheSmallestGestureCanCreateABigImpact

Quando l’ordinario produce qualcosa di straordinario, questo e’ sempre motivo di sorpresa se non addirittura di scandalo. Suscita sentimenti di incredulita’, forse anche di invidia e gelosia. Non si vuole accettare. Questo Ti meraviglia. Non capisci il motivo di questa incredulita’. Io stesso posso essere tentato di non vedere o di disprezzare i miei doni, quelli che ho in casa, dentro di me. Quelli evidenti, ma che io non voglio vedere. L’ordinarieta’ delle cose nasconde il seme dello straordinario. Basta essere obiettivi e osservare. Se io non medito e capisco questo, non potro’ vivere con gratitudine e il potenziale della vita rimarra’ frustrato dalle mie idee su cosa e’ possibile e cosa no. #dalvangelodioggi#routine#ordinario#domenica#profeta#disprezzo#incomprensione#talenti#sorprese#potenziale#vangelo#littlegestures
