Kindness Highlights:

I was driving by the corner of Liberty and Market. Two people were standing there with Black Lives Matter signs.

I had to be somewhere rather quickly, but on my way back, I stopped and bought them hot chocolate.


This happened to me: I was at a local dining establishment. I ran into someone I knew. When I went to pay,

the bar tender informed me that the people I was visiting with had paid for my drinks. Thank you! 


My colleague said thank you to me the other day. It was the first time in NINE YEARS that someone said thank you to me.

It makes a difference when someone expresses their gratitude!
