The nicest thing happened to me today. I ran down to the grocery store to do a little shopping. When I was done I had to leave the cart on the sidewalk because I parked my car in an area where I couldn't bring it up close to my trunk. In the old days, before the cane, I could have grabbed all the bags and made one trip. But with my cane and purse I was only able to get half the bags. I made the trip to my car and when I turned to go back to the cart to get the rest a man and his young daughter were standing there with the rest of my bags. It made me feel so good! 

I make a habit of paying attention to the people around me. When I see someone needs help I usually offer. It's a small thing to open the door for someone. And the little things can often brighten up the day for someone.

You know what the funny thing is Carin? I actually think it was his daughter's idea to help me. Because I heard him say to her as they were walking away, that was a nice thing to do by helping out.

Doesn't happen often Cherie but when it does it feels good.
