Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
Every once in a while, there is a special soul that takes you by surprise and makes you pause. I work in the retail world. As most know, it's not always the easiest world to work in.
But today was different.
How beautiful a day can be, when touched by a simple act of kindness.
Today a sweet young girl named Emma, came through my line with her mom and little sibling. She smiled at me, and I made a comment about her beautiful nail polish and was told by her mom it was for her birthday! Her birthday is in August. As our conversation continued, I shared that my birthday is in August as well. I may of added that us August girls are super special.
Then it happened. Unexpected and sweet kindness, literally took me by surprise. As we were finishing, she quietly offered me a gift. Not just any gift, but a hand coloured and unique little kitty cat figurine she had just made! I also got a hug! Thank you!
Emma, I want you to know your sweet soul and amazing gift put a smile on my face that hasn't left since. It's a beautiful feeling when a stranger makes your heart feel so much joy it just feels like dancing!
My favourite saying, is It is the simple joys, the simple pleasures, the heart remembers and dearly treasures. So, thank you Emma, your kindness, your sweet heart and beautiful smile have made a huge impact on me. I sure hope your smile stays with you as long as the one you have given me does.
Please allow me to introduce you to my new kitty, who I have rightly given the name August
