What do I make of this? (if anything)
I can’t help it…small kindnesses touch my heart deeply. I am very sensitive to those small courtesies, the “small” actions throughout the day that sometimes may not seem like much, but often help get me back on track. (It works the other way too, unfortunately.)
So I’m talking to someone the other night, someone who has an insanely busy schedule, to the point that I wonder when they have any time for themselves. (I mean, I thought I was busy, working a full-time job and taking a class, but compared to them I’m a lazy bum, lol!)
Anyway, in the course of the conversation, he offers to do something for me…and I am suddenly struck by how kind it is for him to offer to do this for me when he is so busy. Granted, the action itself will not take a huge chunk of his time, but still, it is yet another thing for him to deal with in an already busy schedule. I could understand it more if it was something I had asked him to do for me (which I probably would never do, knowing how busy he is), but for him to offer…well, frankly, I was stunned. And the situation was one that would resolve itself one way or another in about six weeks, so again, for him to take extra time to take care of this for me…wow…simply wow!
So now I am wondering what, if anything, to read into this….and interested to hear other’s opinions…
