Small Things That Can Make A Big Difference

Last night kindness had a strange connection with timing.
First, we showed up to deliver to treats to our 95-year old neighbor right before she was ready to go to sleep. Next, we delivered to friends who had just finished dinner and were craving something sweet. Shortly after, with plate in hand, we gifted a neighbor and her daughter who were coming home from a walk. Coincidently, we then were leaving a friend's house as she pulled up from visiting someone else. An eighty-five year old neighbor was on Zoom with friends talking about what Christmas meant and said that our surprise was the perfect example.
One friend was not home when we called. She was cool on the phone when we rang to let her know we were leaving a small treat for her. She told us she was on her way and asked if we would wait. She said that she could use a hug. She had just returned from the ER. Her husband, who had been suffering continuous medical obstacles, had just fallen, broken his hip and needed surgery. She got her hugs.
From a perfect dessert after a good meal to support for friend worried about her husband, our sweets meant a lot to many.
