Do you remember Mighty Mouse and his proclamation that “Here I come to save the day!” He was just a mouse, but he was mighty. A pint-sized superhero. Guess that just goes to prove that you don’t have to be big, or well known, to make a difference. Each one of us can “save the day” for someone. We can say a kind word or do a good deed. It doesn’t always take something big to make a difference, it can be just a small thing like a hug, a smile, a note, or just a quick phone call to say “I’m thinking of you” or “I love you.”
Here’s to hoping you can be a superhero, if even in a pint-sized, or half-pint sized way. Crank up that smile and be prepared to pass around the hugs as needed.
