Have you ever had something to say but didn’t say it? I am not talking about those major things in life. I’m not referring to controversial confrontations; the childhood issues many of us to seek counseling for. I mean the small stuff
There is a woman who works in your office who is answering the telephones all day, has it ever crossed your mind that she has a big job and is vital to your success?
Your officemate always remembers that you take two creams and no sugar in your coffee?
Your spouse remembers to fill your gas tank each week or take the trash to the curb every Wednesday night?
Your child who remembers to text you to brighten your day once in a while?
If you know me - in person or through my writing - you likely know I think a lot. You may also remember that when I am doing chores is one of my “prime thinking” time. I am often thinking of others in my life each day.

I’ve made a conscious effort recently to tell people when they are on my heart are in my mind. I cannot tell you if that action has made much of a difference to them, but it has made a difference to me.

Our time on earth will be through who will not be aware that I appreciated them? Who will not know that we noticed?
