Unconditional Love Is A Series Of Small Acts

For as long as I can remember Don has been an endearing male role model for me, my sister, and my mom. Once Don met my husband six years ago, my husband became one of hundreds of people Don added to his list of those he cared for and deeply loved. Did Don know how much we love him and his wife? Telling my husband that Don died was devastating for both of us, but we’re pulling ourselves out of our grief by remembering Don’s legacy.

Do you ever wonder how to let people know your appreciation or support for them? What about when you’re a person of few words or have difficulty showing your emotions? Don showed us his love through:

 

1. Phone Calls
2. Emails
3. Cards
4. Visiting and Welcoming People into Our Home
5. Breaking Bread Together
6. Sharing Funny Stories
7. Reminiscing Together
8. Kidding Each Other Lightly
9. Showing Support and Encouragement During Life’s Difficult Times By Just Being There
10. Hugs

When my husband and I moved back to my hometown in Alaska, guess who helped two newlyweds figure out the married ropes? Don and his wife fed us, watched our puppy, helped us through two devastating miscarriages, cared for me while my husband was deployed in Iraq, and then celebrated his return at the redeployment ceremony with us. Not in words, but in actions.

The little acts of kindness and love are often inexpensive. However, the enormity of showing we care tends to ripple and grow in impact throughout the lives of those we love—if we take the time to do them.

The Courage to Ask for Help

By

We live in two worlds: the external and internal. Our external world is a reflection of our internal world.
