I had a long day yesterday. Likely no longer than yours, but it was long. And it was Monday. I was out the door early for a trip to Maryland, and then racing - quite literally over large stretches of northbound I-95 - to make it home for a meeting at church last night. It was during a particular weary moment of the trip when I received a text message from my wife that contained a picture of our boys playing who can do the best Fonzie impersonation in the bathroom after school. For you younger folks, I apologize for the Fonzie reference. I encourage you to watch some old Happy Days episodes on one of the online streaming platforms.
Here's the thing. My wife Katie probably thought she was doing something funny. A quick and cool thing to share. She's right. But what she probably didn't know is just how much it would mean to me to know that when she saw this boy moment, she thought of me. She refused to let me miss it.
I thank her for that.
Somebody will do something seemingly small and meaningless in your life today. Thank them and make it monumental.
