like taking time out from our crazy compact schedule
to see a friend’s first steps in film production,
to comment positively on their work,
and leave constructive criticism to the critics.
This simple gift of time touched my friend deeply.
She said my encouraging words warmed her heart.
She said they meant more than I would ever know.
She said this with an expressive thank you card and gift,
that made me feel tearful, joyful, grateful and more.
Sometimes it’s the little things that mean so much.
So when someone you care about asks you to do
something that will only take a little time,
please don’t put it off forever,
because the truth is:
we can all find time to do the things we really want to do.
