On a daily basis, I pass the construction site for a new community in Celebration, Fla. It’s been sprouting up quite quickly, and this weekend, I started thinking about the implications of what the construction workers were doing. In essence, they were making “home” possible for people they’d likely never even meet. So, I decided to bring breakfast to the construction site. It was a memorable delivery.
A gentleman who appeared to be leading the efforts flagged me down to ask what exactly I was doing there. I started to explain, and he remarked that I “didn’t need to do that”. As I continued though, his tone shifted, and he shared that “you see this stuff in the movies; I didn’t know people actually cared.” It was a powerful reminder that a little thoughtfulness can go a long way.
