Many of us have been taught the importance of “the little things” in life. Through the years, my parents and more recently my dad, a U.S. Navy veteran, has impressed on me how actions speak louder than words. Sometimes these actions come in the form of gestures extended from one person to another. These gestures can have a positive impact on a person’s day even setting or changing the tone.

I experience a couple of these “little things” every time I shop at Lowe’s Home Improvement in Viewmont. As a U.S. Navy veteran, I receive a 10 percent discount on purchases. In addition, there are parking spaces designated near the front of the store for veterans. Although to many folks, 10 percent doesn’t seem like much and a parking space is no big deal, it’s the thought behind the gesture. It conveys an appreciation to me for military service to this great country during the Vietnam era.

Thanks Lowe’s for the “little things” you do that make a day brighter.
