Today, I have made it a point to say hello, good morning to people. I have told them to have a nice day.

I was at the mall, walking, and as I passed or met the other walkers, even w my mp3 player on, I greeted them with a smile and a hello.

I filled out customer service cards on places i was at last week for people who helped me, or were overly kind.

I stopped into the shoe store and told the gentleman that I bought a pair of shoes there last Saturday and they are like heaven, and thanked him, for the young lady who directed me to them , and helped me get fitted and such.

Now, I do things like this normally...but today I did it EXTRA. I feel like crap. I am hurting within my life.

It felt good to make other people happy, or even get them to crack a smile...

Robyn

Way to go Robyn. To go out of your way to be kind to others when you are in pain is a special attribute. I am holding you in my T's and P's.

It is very good and nice of you to do that. I am sure you made someones day as many only get the bad feedback/attitude from clients.

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. (Joseph Addison)

And Robyn, you may never know what you did for someone by being extra kind to them today.

Maybe some of us can take a clue from you and make our little part of the world a bit better!
