It’s often the little things that have such impact on how we perceive something. When I arrived at a B and B recently and opened the fridge to store some food I had brought, I was greeted with this. It was completely unexpected, and completely charming.
It was a little something extra the owner left for me. A delightful surprise on a scorching hot day. The tag told me it was fresh and had been prepared with me in mind.
These little things, that took a bit of effort, but even more thought, are what stay with us. It’s like the old adage about it being the thought that counts when it comes to gifts.
As always when I stay here, I was charmed by this little touch of grace. We all need more of them in our lives.
