It was my birthday. A day, generally celebrated by those who are so young, that turning a year older only means more opportunities…. and I was feeling so old.
In no mood to celebrate, I made no efforts to make any kind of plans.
Well, loved ones being loved ones – went out of their way to show me – just how much I did with the last year of my life.
Friends – more like family; new and old rallied up their troops to make my day. And they out did themselves – they made it an epic one – that I will remember for a long time to come.
What made it special is the people that took time out of their day to come say hi, pick up the phone and call, arrange a special thing, or picking up a thoughtful gift.
I am now inspired. I know, that it takes just a little thought to make someone feel special. Its not about how much, how big, how small – its just about loving people fully by putting in that little extra effort.
No more loving by halves; effort is everything in any relationship. Sometimes, you may not want to make the effort – but the rewards always far exceed the efforts.
Happy Loving! I hope your special days are as joyous and memorable as mine!
