My youngest nephew turned four last week. Today they came over and we had a little family party for him. I had some leftover Skylander birthday party supplies so I put them out and hung up a birthday banner.
He walked in and saw it and got so excited. “SKYLANDERS!!!!! Thank you so much!” And then he gave me the biggest hug.
He stood there looking at the little pile of presents and the napkins and the cups and said “this is the best birthday ever”. I started to cry.
It was just some leftover party supplies, lemonade in a punch bowl, homemade cupcakes my mom made, and playing with his cousins, but to him it was a huge deal.
He was so happy, and it was such a small thing.
You never know when a small kindness will have a huge impact.
That is why every day it is so important we choose to be kind.
