I have shared the struggles that we have been facing right now with my husband fracturing his pelvis due to a skiing accident. He is home now and has a long road of recovery before him.
During the week that he was still in the hospital and I was traveling home every few days to take care of errands here, I was surprised one morning. A friend had come to pick up my two boys to take them to a home school function that day. After I waved goodbye and turned back around to come into the house I noticed something that truly touched my heart. Dear friends had done some yard work while I was at the hospital. This I had already known, but how surprised I was when I saw cheerful pansies in the flower bed by my front door. They made me smile and cry at the same time. I know for them it probably was just a simple act of kindness, but it touched my heart tremendously.
Now whenever I actually make it outside, I smile whenever I see those flowers and remember how just a simple act can cause joy, cheer and lift one's spirits.
What can you do today to touch someone's heart?
