To the man who came into shanty today;
Just to tell me he took the time to look through all my photography on my personal site, and that he thinks I “glow, and emit an aura of natural light and happiness that is hard to ignore. You’re talent exceeds that of which any artist I have seen in my 67 years of living.”
To the Sue chef, Paul; who noticed that I’ve been working too hard and forgetting to eat every day for the last two weeks due to stress - and made me pre-packed lunch for the next week with positive quotes written on each one.
To my boss; who took the time to pull me aside and say he has noticed the hard work and dedication I have put in while trying to pick up others slack.
To Ms. Faye, at the salad station, who constantly takes five minutes every morning to ask how I am doing, and about every member of my family- before beginning her shift.
To the homeless man outside of work; who offered me a slice of pizza out of his only food for the week, and always offers a smile on my way in to work.
To the customer; who came back twenty minutes later to apologize for how they treated me when they were in a mad mood.
These are just a few things that I managed to overlook this week, but when thinking back I realized that small things of this nature happen every day, and I have simply been too caught up to notice. I am thankful for these people, and extremely thankful for the inspiration many have instilled in me to become a better, more aware, more thankful human being.
