Never underestimate the value of noticing, acknowledging, and appreciating someone’s contribution. It opens the flow of giving and receiving. It demonstrates a generous spirit. It invites an opportunity to connect. It says I see you and you matter.
In these times of social distancing, be the one who picks up the phone to say hello to someone who might be home alone and feeling lonely. Be the one who mails a greeting card to a co-worker who’s now working from home and afraid of losing her/his job. Be the one who leaves a flower at your neighbor’s front door with a note inviting them to call you to check-in. Be the one who brings a home-cooked meal to a Mom who is home alone with her kids all day while trying to be on a conference call for her job. Everyone needs someone. Be that someone!!
