The Littlest Thing


The littlest things can go such a long way. You never know what could make someone’s day.

A woman said, “I really like you with glasses,” as I was cutting through our Learning Lab to get to the office. “Really?!?!” I replied surprised.  I told her that I never wear my glasses unless I don’t feel well. So you know when I’m wearing my glasses what that means. We both chuckled and she said I understand I wear contacts too. I told her thanks with a smile and went on my way.

She works in a classroom down the hall from me as an assistant. I don’t have much contact with her,  but her comment and kindness went a long way. The rest of the day I just kept thinking about her comment and how good it made me feel. Just what I needed that day!

  1. Kindness is a big topic these days. Often it is just the little things that make such a big impact. The human contact and also the fact that she was noticing and connecting. Such a big thing to model in today’s fast paced world. Thanks for the slice.

  2. This piece is powerful, Shelly, because it reminds us of the importance of simple acts of kindness like taking the time to give someone an honest compliment. I like to read your pieces because they are always honest and sincere. You are a kind, sweet human being and that comes through in your writing, too! Thanks for a great way to start my Monday!
