I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your day!
I was supposed to post here last Wednesday. I had all intentions of getting it done ahead of time and then... life happened. Editing deadlines, day jobs, just... life.
So on the way to work that Wednesday I realize I didn't do the post. I take this very seriously because I made a commitment to this blog and everyone who posts and visits. I've never missed a post like that. Frantic, I quickly text Carol to tell her how sorry I am and see if I could post it later that day. Carol, of course, said that was fine. And just as I finish that text I get a text from my friend Andrea Hannah, you may know her, she just did an awesome post on honesty. She texted me that morning just to say hello. (note: I was freaking out and can't be responsible for my actions, but I normally do not text & drive. Just in case you were wondering ;o) Also I did the whole text to talk thing, at least. PSA over) I call Andrea and I tell her about my situation and missed post dilemma. And without me asking, she offers to take my place and trade days. Just like that. She has a day job too, but she made the decision to help me. I know missing a blog post isn't going to make or break anything, but what she did made a huge difference to me. I was exhausted, running on 3 hours of sleep and what she did just mattered. It took one thing off my plate at a time when my plate was overflowing.
You never know what one small act of kindness will do for someone. And it may seem trivial or not a big deal to you, but the person that receives it will appreciate it ;o)
What about you? Have you had someone do something small for you that meant a lot?
