Yesterday I was the recipient of a simple act of kindness and generosity that brightened my day. As a token of appreciation, someone gave me a container of wonderful-smelling soap and a pretty bag of lavender seeds. It didn’t cost her much, really didn’t take too much effort, and yet it lifted my spirit immensely.
Too often, I find myself caught up in the hurry and stress of the day’s work and forget to take the time to appreciate people around me. This simple act of thoughtfulness inspired me to try and be more mindful of simple opportunities to let others know that I appreciate and care for them.
What simple ways can you think of to show your appreciation for someone?
