These three, simple little words managed to make my day! I had been reading a wonderful article entitled '3 words to an easier existence' which was so beautifully written and so full of wisdom it got lodged in my heart and I carried it around with me all day. I went for a snack with my daughter in the city later on, and as I approached the counter to pay for it, a young man serving caught my eye. I was curious and a little unnerved at first because there were lots of people queueing but for some unfathomable reason he twinkled at me. It was very sweet and warming, we exchanged money, nods and thank you's and my daughter and I sat down to eat. I returned some time later for a cappuccino and a brownie, he served me again. "I'm only going to charge you for the brownie" he said smiling, quite out of the blue. . . . ."What! really?" I said somewhat shocked "Why's that?" . . . "No reason . . . . " and as he began to say it I finished his words " . . . . Just to be kind!" - "that's right! feels good to be nice. . . " we both knew at that moment how easy it was 'just to be kind' and it made my day.
His sweetness and generosity made me smile so much everyone around us smiled too and I felt so blessed, that the blessing spread out to everyone I met.
