Sometimes I live way too far inside my own head and it can take something pretty spectacular to get me out of those depths.
This week started out pretty awesome. One morning before work the lady in front of me at the drive-thru at Starbucks paid for my coffee, allowing me to earn some good karma by passing along her kindess. The next day a lady who seemed to be in a hurry, held an elevator door for me. It’s these small tiles of kindess and humanity that once collected, form a beautiful mosaic that we can reflect on when we need a touch of beauty in our lives.
For some reason, this story brought me to tears this week. By “some reason” I don’t mean that it shouldn’t but just that I felt so affected by an alligator. But I did. It just Makes. Me. So. Sad.
The gator will soon be on it’s way to a Florida sanctuary to live out it’s life in a manner most befitting it’s needs and hopefully be able to dwell in all the sunshine it wants.
Do feel like cheering a crazy lady up? Tell me something good that happened to you or that you did recently.
