It's day 43 and I have just hit mile marker 1,082.1 and 2,337,144 steps. After walking this far I have come to realize how much the "small things" mean to me. Whether it is someone sharing in conversation with me, buying a cup of coffee, a meal, refilling my water, or a smile... it means so much! People do not realize the effect that they can have. There are times that I have left a diner/café, side of the road (having a vehicle stop to chat or share a gift), that I have literally just smiled for miles due to their kindness. Their action had more of an effect on me than I am sure they would have thought originally. I only hope and pray that any of my actions will have the same effect on others that I meet along this journey. Here is a simple country song that I would like to share that I have been thinking a lot about throughout these past miles. I hope you find how moving these lyrics can be.
The Chain of Love
