No Big Acts Required.

She was trying to call someone on her cell to pick her up, but the signal kept dropping out and she was getting agitated. I offered to ask the receptionist to make the call from their phone.
She just wanted to get outside where she knew her phone would work so I stood up and put out my arm for her to lean on for balance, and we walked outside. I wanted to stay and talk with her while she waited for a friend, but the dentist called me in.
I've been feeling in a bit of a dark cloud lately and this encounter gave me a feeling of connection. Sometimes I fall in the trap of thinking I need to do something big with my life to lead a meaningful life of service and purpose. It's the little things, as they say.
