Roses and Newspapers
--by Tamara, posted May 19, 2006
On mothers day today we had a bunch of roses in our church that went out to all the mothers. There were a few extra so i took the extra ones home with me and placed them on people in my neighborhoods doorsteps. Then when i was delivering newpapers on wednesday one of my neighbors had seen me drop of a rose at their doorstep, ran up to me and gave me a huge hug.
That had made my day, that sometimes people just need something small like a rose to make them happy!
'Pay it Forward' is one my favorite movies - the idea that anyone with the desire to make a difference can have an unbelievable effect on everyone around them. Even though I totally bawled at the end like everyone else, the message has always stuck.
That was so thoughtful of you and you know you made a difference to your neighbor if they couldn't wait to thank you three days later..... what a beautiful heart you have! :)
That's awesome. It is always about the little things. =)
