The challenge today is to take time, better yet, make time to care.
We get so busy sometimes that we think we are too busy to take time away to do something that should happen many times daily.
I was reminded of this with my oldest granddaughter when she was four years old or so.
At least once every time she was around she would leave what she was doing, come find me and say “I just came to give you a hug”.
She would give me a hug, tell me she loved me and then return to the important task of playing. In fact, she still does this three years later. (Grandparents understand)
So what’s the lesson for us today?
Let’s take a moment or two from the important tasks that we are doing to make sure someone knows we care.
Write a quick note of appreciation, pick up the phone for a quick call or text, or have a conversation about something other than work.
Let’s keep the main thing the main thing. People are the main thing. Let them know they are valued and that you care.
If a four year old can do it so can we.
I’m cheering for you.
