If you go out of your way to be friendly and nice to people, for no reason other than it just feels good or like the right thing to do, THANK YOU.
Even if (and when) it means people don’t always see or appreciate it, THANK YOU.
Even if your desire to help others or make them more comfortable sometimes gets you into trouble, THANK YOU.
Even if what you did was “no trouble” or “the easiest thing to do” or “any decent human being would have done it”, THANK YOU.
Even if you do these things without the need for acknowledgment, THANK YOU.
Because if you’ve done these things, you’ve touched many lives, including my own — directly or indirectly — and you deserve to be thanked whether you think you do or not.
So THANK YOU.
And please carry on doing what you do, like I know you will, whether you read this or not.
You rock. THANK YOU.
