Easy to delight

A dear friend of mine recently lost someone close to him, and he’s a bit shaken up by it. Predictably, the situation is causing him to reflect on his life and to appreciate those closest to him even more.

He sent me a note this morning that I’ll cherish for a long time. It outlines his respect and appreciation and the quiet gratitude that close friends can understand without trying.

There’s no reason why he couldn’t send the note any other time, though. And today is just as good a day as any to let someone know that you care.

To let them know that you noticed.

To let them know that you miss them.

To let them know that the sun might not shine as brightly without them in your life.

Make someone’s day today.

It’s never too late, until it is…
