Small things make a big difference!!!

Bobby has been in the hospital on and off for the last couple months. Right now he is in rehab. trying to get stronger to be able to come home. He is trying so hard to get thru all of this. I put his address where he is on Facebook in case some of his friends or family wants to send him a card. Yesterday he got 3 cards. I said, oh, look you got a card. I told him who it was from. It made his day. Then I read the second card, he said oh, wow. That is so nice that people was thinking about him. He smiled for the first time in a while. I had sent him a card also. So, I hung them up on the door so he could see them from his bed. Today I was telling the lady I worked with, she said she was wanting to send him a card, but it wouldn't get there by Christmas, so she did a card for him, addressed the envelope and even put a stamp on it. She then ask me could I slide it in to his room and let him think it came in the mail. I got back to his room today before he got back there from dialysis. I laid the card on his table. when he came in, they had his dinner ready for him. I acted like I just noticed the card. I said oh, look you got another card. He smiled real big and said, oh, yeah, really??? I read it to him. Then hung it up for him to see. I said look you have 4 cards, and I don't have any. He said don't you know anyone that wants to write to you? LOL OMG, that made my day. To think just 2 weeks ago, he couldn't even tell the doctor his name. I wished there was a way to give him a card every day, just to see how he lights up when he sees them. It is the small things in life that make the biggest difference!!!
