Today I gave gum to three of my students. Nothing special, just the Orbit Fruitini I had in my purse. You'd have thought I gave them all a million dollars.
Today I smiled at a student as he entered my classroom, and complimented how much his behavior had improved. His muttered "thanks" didn't really sound sincere, but his behavior was near-perfect.
Today I went back outside in the freezing cold to get my baby boy's toy train from the car. From the look on his face you'd have thought I bought him a whole new train set.
Today I lent a book to a good friend, one we'd both wanted to read for some time. She smiled from ear to ear, excited about a long weekend of reading.
At dinner tonight, I gave my middle boy part of my chocolate chip dessert. He grinned like I'd given him the entire dessert.
Little things are important. They make life matter. Find the little things in your life. You'll enrich your own life, and make someone else's richer too.
