Recently, I was reminiscing about family experiences that have truly made a difference in someone’s life. One that stands out, is when a co-worker suffering from cancer mentioned her son hadn’t been around to care for her lawn. Immediately we jumped into action; we rounded the troops, the lawn mower and yard tools. It would have been easy to put it off, due to the weather, but we made the 20-mile drive none-the-less. Although it was cold and damp, we spent the day together showing love and compassion to someone in need. She was overwhelmed that someone cared enough to make such an effort for her; but the biggest blessing was feeling the gratification of giving of ourselves. What a rewarding experience! Our daughter realized how little things can make a big difference in others’ lives.
