Not long ago, I was driving down the road when a drop of rain hit my windshield. Just one drop. I scanned the skies, saw gray clouds and prepared myself for rain. More sprinkles…something! But it didn’t come. What I noticed though, was the spot that one drop made on my dusty windshield. That one spot was now cleaner…as was the trail that the drop made as it traveled to the bottom of the glass. It got me to thinking about the significance of single things.
How often do we feel insignificant in this crazy, busy world in which we live? I hear it often – “I’d say something, but it wouldn’t matter,” or “I’d do something, but it wouldn’t make a difference.” Really? It only took one person to say, “I have a dream.” It only took one person to invent the light bulb. One iceberg sank the Titanic. One man listened to God and built an ark. One…matters.
There are things you do every day that matter. One smile, one kind word, one phone call to an elderly relative or shut-in, one email sent to a friend you haven’t seen in years.
Personally, we have seen the impact of one idea. One magazine that is meant to be fun. Meant to be enjoyed. Meant to be inspirational. Meant to help you learn more about your neighbors and the businesses that make up a very special community.
Every one of you who share your photos with us and let us know how much you like what we’re doing, mean the world to us. One mention to an advertiser about seeing their ad in Postcards means the world to them.
ONE magazine. ONE moment.
ONE day. ONE person.
ONE drop that leaves a ripple.
Pick one today and make it count!
Until next time ~ Karen
