Spread a Little Kindness

October 25th, 2010

I’m in my way home and while sitting here on the train I have time to reflect about something unexpected that happened to me about 30 minutes ago.

I guess you could say that I fit the bill as a typical Southerner in the aspect that I’m friendly. I will pretty much strike up a conversation with anyone and have a smile for everyone I meet.

A little while ago I was at the train station and the coffee I’d drank had made it’s way through my kidneys and I was in serious need of the girls room. They charge 50 cents at the station, but there is an attendant and it’s always clean, so it’s worth the price.

The attendant happened to be male and when I walked out of the stall and was washing my hands, I noticed the attendant on the other side of the area. I smiled at him, he smiled back and looked at me and told me I was beautiful. I’ll admit that it was the last thing I expected to hear today, but I thanked him. He asked where I was from, so I gave him a general answer of the area I’m from and he smiled and said that he knew where it was.

He went back to his station at the front of the restroom and I needed to walk past him to exit. Again, I smiled at him and this time he said that he really thought I was nice and again that I was beautiful. I thanked him for the compliment and that was the end of our contact, as I walked out of the restroom door.

That little man really made my day. It was a simple kindness but something that warmed my heart and made me smile.

I wonder what our world would be like if we all took a moment to share a kind word or gesture with at least one RANDOM person each day?

    A simple heartfelt compliment can make the difference between a lift in spirit or just getting by.
