SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

Thanks

Discussion started on

I'd lost my bearings as I drove in an unfamiliar part of Alexandria, Virginia. As I sat at a traffic light, a homeless guy was walking on the center island. I waved to him and gave him a few dollars, and he said, "Thanks."

Then I said to him, "Can you tell me how to get to Duke Street?" He did, and I said, "Thanks."

His face broke into a beaming smile. I wondered how long it had been since someone had thanked him for anything.

I love this. We take so much for granted, even a smile over a simple thing...when most of us should be smiling "just because."

A reminder for all that we never know what small thing can bring a bit of light to another. :love5
