I never really thought about it until my coworker (really employee) walked in this Friday and said to me: "Chris you can sleep well tonight"! I didn't talk about it much at work, but the lunatic on the loose that was shooting people had me crazed and insane and my some of my coworkers realized that and this gentleman, took the moment to come in, before our shift (I'm already working) to smile at me (that I understand you smile) and let me know, he knew I was hurting on the inside!
Then I realized how much the "small stuff" the stuff that doesn't take any time or any effort, how much that stuff really means! What a difference the small stuff makes!
So as we are not supposed to "sweat the small stuff" what a difference the "small stuff" makes in our lives!!
For me, it's just that moment where you know someone is thinking about you and takes the moment to express it.
