The Little Things

Sometimes it's the littlest things that have the biggest impact.  

You don't have to have millions of dollars to start some major philanthropic organization to make a difference in peoples lives.  You get the chance every day, you just have to take it. 

Heard about this manager of a restaurant, Sue, who got one of those chances.  It started with this phone call "This is going to be a very strange request."

It turns out that Cook's grandmother is dying of cancer. She had a specific request for her grandson: She wanted a bowl of clam chowder while she could still eat solid food, which would not be for much longer. 

There was one problem. Clam chowder was only served on Fridays.  Sue made it anyway, and got it to her just in time.  

It's not a big deal in the whole scheme of things.  But, to that Grandma and her Grandson it meant a lot. It was the last physical meal she ate. 

It's just the littlest things.  

What's something little that someone did for you that has made all the difference?

Yesterday while shopping in our church's bookstore, my 17 year old showed me a compact bible that she could carry with her while at school.  It cost $20.  I told my daughter that I couldn't afford it right now (I am a single mother of three teenage daughters).  Financially we struggle a bit so I didn't have the extra for the beautiful bible she wanted.  A "sister" overheard our conversation and bought the bible for my daughter after we had left the store and were walking to the car to go home.  What a difference that blessing will have on my daughter as she enters her senior year at school.  She always brings a bible to school with her so that she can use it as a witness tool and now she has a beautiful, soft blue leather one that will be a conversation starter for an introduction to Jesus!  This little bible has the potential to be the greatest impact ever in someone's life.  Thank you Lord for your blessings!
