Someone I know got some really crappy news confirmed this week. It was a diagnosis that no one wants to ever be sitting across the desk from. Needless to say, they have been devastated. In that time you choose your words carefully, you pray and you hope. You also try to find bits of humor and brevity in the world.
Today, while at the Goodwill, I came across a gnome. It was an NFL collectible and was ironically the favorite team of this person. So I picked it up. I reminded the person that they once said that they “had no one to watch football games with.” I then presented my gift and said “now you do!” We laughed and laughed. Upon recognizing the favorite NFL team there was a smile!
To me that random act of kindness was worth the world!
