Over the last fortnight I’ve heard numerous times the statement along the lines of “I didn’t notice how much The Queen meant until she wasn’t here. I think this is also something we often feel about people who are no longer in our lives through whatever circumstances.
However, today a friend of mine was telling some others changes that she had noticed about me in recent weeks. I got ridiculously embarrassed but was also aware that I hadn’t really noticed myself. I left where we were feeling happier, more confident than when I woke up this morning.
This made me wonder; do we take the time to notice things about others? Do we take the time to tell people that we’ve noticed and if necessary take the time to see if there is anything they need?
If we take the time to notice then others may take the time as well – who knows what the chain reaction may lead to.
