Do Something Sweet

On an airplane today, there was an older couple seated in front of me across the aisle from each other. A long flight, so I had settled in and was happily working and listening to music. The husband of the couple got up and went to the back of the plane. A few moments later he wandered back toward his seat and, having noticed his wife was reading, he reached over her head to turn on her reading light.

It wasn’t dark, she didn’t ask. He noticed. He noticed that he had an opportunity to do something sweet. Something small, something seemingly unremarkable. And yet, it was huge. The wife looked up and smiled at him. He smiled at her. No words were spoken. But the actions spoke volumes. Do something sweet. Something small and show someone you love (and anyone around who may notice) that the small things do make all of the difference.
