A little while ago I had a phone call from Suzanne, a new friend who is on her way to her own kidney transplant. She is very interested in all of it, of course, and it's a pleasure to talk to someone else with the same depth of health knowledge. I realized, hanging up, how cheered I felt from this short phone call, how it had a certain energizing effect. Before that, there was homemade chicken noodle soup, and miniature muffins, and a visit from two neighbors who told me how they had seen the foxes play in their back yard. I could feel health going into me with every spoonful of that perfectly seasoned soup. I felt I wanted to say this more strongly than I know how - every kind act matters. How to say that strongly enough? Over and over, a card comes in the mail, a plate of Halloween cookies at the door, every drop of water matters.
We can think we aren't important, or we can't do much, but that's wrong. Everywhere you go you build the universe, you heal other people.
