Easter KindnessI have always realized that it is really the smallest of acts which can make the biggest difference for others in this life.
In fact, a great man once said that it is by the small and simple things we do, that the truly great things can come to pass.
I myself have been the beneficiary of so many 'little things' throughout the years; today was not an exception.
I awoke early, got ready, and headed out for the day. As I opened the front door, I was greeted with a neon-green bag filled with various Easter goodies -- a gift from a friend of mine who just wanted to drop off a little 'holiday magic' in the spirit of Easter.
I won't say that I wasn't grateful, because I was. A little smile stretched across my face, and I couldn't help but let it stay with me for the remainder of the day.
A few hours later I returned home and a knock sounded at the door. My roommate went to check who it was; standing there were two neighborhood children whom I'll surname, Kelton & Breanna.
"Is the teacher here?" came the hesitant question.
My roommate opened the door wide and the two children crossed the threshold, bringing with them a plastic Easter bucket filled with various holiday candy and purple grass.
"Happy Easter!" they both proclaimed. "We brought you treats!"
It really is those little things which truly make the biggest difference. There is no act of kindness which is wasted on another.
