Who Do You Care About Like This?
This Week's Simple Tip:
Some of the service people who help around our house have been in our lives for MANY years. Over time, I've gotten to know some of them personally. I was mentioning to my husband recently how "nice and interesting" one of the service guys is. I went on to say that "if something ever happened to him, I'd really miss him."
I regularly let my family and close friends know how much I care about them, but I don't normally share that with a casual acquaintance like a service provider I see 2-3 times per year. But then I don't feel that way about all service providers either!
So ... the next time he came to the house I told him that I really appreciate him helping us all these years, and that if something ever happened to him, I would miss him. I can still picture his reaction; he was very touched, and his smile radiated.
If the roles were reversed, wouldn't you want to know that someone felt like that? We all would love to know :)
This Week's Focus:
This week, take some time to think about those acquaintances in your life that you would miss if something were to happen to them. Let them know you care!!
