“People Will Never Forget How You Made Them Feel.”

Last week, I went to my cousin’s home to pick up a wall hanging that she wanted to give me. The wall hanging was in the TV room. I was so excited about getting an unexpected gift and so focused on remembering my cousin’s instructions on how to retrieve the item, I did not realise the television was on, which meant that someone was in there watching telly.


Two steps into the room and I realised Zach, Cousin’s 7 year old boy, was nestled on the couch eyes previously glued to the screen, but then on me, temporarily startled by my intrusion.


“Oh, hi Zach, I didn’t realise someone was in here. I’m sorry I barged in without knocking.”


And then …


“Hi Kate. That’s okay. You can barge in anytime.”


Bowled over, I leaped onto the couch and nearly crushed Zach with a hug for his generous spirit.


“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,

People will forget what you did,

But people will never forget how you made them feel.”
