in the generous life

I was visiting with my neighbor while she was working in her kitchen.  She chatted momentarily with her husband on the phone and then set about making lunch for the two of them, wrapping it in clear wrap and tucking it in the fridge.  They would share their meal a little later when he got back from running errands.  It was a small thing, but it really blessed me to see the care that went into that and the simple fact that she was looking forward to sharing a lunch meal with him.  It was just a small practical act, but it was also hugely about attitude.  Her thoughtfulness and her joy in sharing time with him was … beautiful.

Maybe we could all just take a moment to check our attitudes.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. Winston Churchill
