I asked the flight attendant my ‘famous’ question, “Tell me something beautiful, loving or kind you have seen done on a plane.”
This smiling woman didn’t even have to think, she answered immediately.
“That’s easy, it’s when I see a couple who are sitting across the isle from each other holding hands. I just want to take picture it’s so sweet! Oh and there was this older couple sitting up front one time and she feel asleep before take off and her husband reached over and snugged up her seat belt. So, so sweet!”
You know, the big surprises and gifts we give to people we love are special. They are planned and intentional and deliberate and that’s great. Consider though the small, unconscious acts that you do (or are done for you) by people you love that show love in the tinest, most beautiful way – like the ones that the flight attendant noticed.
Doing, and appreciating, unconscious acts of love, it’s just one more way…it just one more way to live Your Life, Unlimited.
