when small is big

I’d just turned into the rainy parking lot when I saw several of my co-workers returning from lunch. Notable among them was my friend, Kevin, tucked–exactly as you would expect if you know Kevin–beneath a perfectly tasteful black umbrella. We waved at each other as I pulled into my spot and began gathering my things for an afternoon of meetings.

I happened to glance into my rearview mirror when I saw him coming back across the pavement. Clearly he’d reached the front door and had done an about-face, splashing toward me in a pretty good downpour, his mission to get me tucked in for a safe, dry journey across the parking lot.

It was a kindness that touched me. I’d brought my own umbrella–quite uncharacteristically–which made Kevin’s generous, thoughtful gesture all the more sweet.

Thank you, dear friend.
