Joyce Meyer: Notice the Little Things...

One day as I was going into an office building, a man standing nearby opened the door for me. I thanked him & smiled. "You're the fifth person I've held the door for," he said, "and you're the first one to smile & the second to thank me."

I thanked him a second time, with a smile on my face. Afterward, I thought how much we take others for granted, even in simple things, such as opening a door for a stranger.

We often commend people when they do big things for us, but how often do we appreciate the little things?

When a person does something nice for you & you thank them, it builds them up & encourages them. It means a lot to them, just like it did to the man at the office building.

Did your bus arrive on time today? If so, did you thank the driver? The last time you ate at a restaurant, did you thank the waiter for filling your coffee cup a second time without being asked? This i the point I want to make: Develop an attitude of gratitude toward the people in your life.
