Years ago, my husband coached CYO basketball for my youngest son’s team. Yesterday, a story trickled to me from the head coach of CYO. At the end of each season, the head coach would ask the volunteer coaches to gather the boys’ CYO jerseys and leave them on his porch. Most everyone would leave dirty, sweaty jerseys in a bag on his porch. He remembered that Steve, my husband, would bring the jerseys washed and folded, ring the doorbell of the head coach’s home, and take a minute to thank him for the season.
To my husband, it was such a small thing! But this head coach remembered.
And in a way, it wasn’t a small thing. Steve was thinking about the next person in line to handle the jerseys (the head coach).
There’s a metaphor in that.
Today, think about the “next person in your line.” What can you do to make life a little bit easier for that person?
Share your “next in line” story with me and you’ll be entered to win a copy of Amish Values for Your Family. Winner will be announced next Tuesday.
