Make my day…

I was visiting Atlanta last week and went for a long walk one afternoon in search of a good cup of coffee.  As I passed a school crossing guard standing by herself, in a moment of inspiration I simply said, “Thanks for doing what you do!”  I could tell I had made her day from the way her face lit up as she said, “Why, thank  you!”  Whether it did or not, it made my day to be uncharacteristically sensitive to the opportunity for a simple kindness.
