Small things that mean a lot.
A few weeks ago, I asked my friends on Facebook to send Christmas cards to me for my dad to open on Christmas. We had been discussing and lamenting the decline in Christmas cards we have been receiving. It’s a small thing to do, putting an extra card in the mail while you make out your other cards. I gave them to him today and the look on his face says it all.
Some folks wrote notes inside the cards, and he said at one point that he thought it was cool how some people know what to say in a card. He also said he was proud that I surround myself with friends that are awesome enough to do this. I’m proud of that too. Thanks to everyone who popped a card in the mail to me for Dad!
