I have Learned

One thing I have learned in life is that small acts of kindness can be transformational.  When I tell people how their kindness has changed my life, they often have no recollection of the event.  To them it was no big deal.  To me it was everything.  I was reminded of this the other day when I received a call from an old friend.  I haven’t seen him in at least 30 years.  He called to thank me for something I did in the 1970’s.  He said it saved his marriage and was the impetus for him starting a business that made him wealthy.  

So, what did I do that was so meaningful?   I have no idea.   And it doesn’t matter.  What matters is that I was able to help someone have a better life.  Whose life will you change today with your kindness?  Who changed your life with theirs?  Have you thanked them?
