An Ode to the Courteous, Friendly People in the world.

Dear anybody who has ever genuinely listened to another's problems, smiled and been patient with a customer, or even better, been patient with an inexperienced worker while they figure out your problem. The one's who hug their little kids when they cry instead of yelling at them to shut up. Those people out there who slow down a little on the freeway to let someone in a hurry change lanes.The one's who might be having the worst possible day, but you would never know it because they smile anyways. The people who take the time from their day to stop in at an old friend's wedding. The people who smile when they see someone and make the effort to learn not just their name, but who they really are inside. The ones who make a birthday cake for a friend's birthday instead of taking two seconds to type a quick message on their Facebook wall. The people who stop and help a complete stranger pick up papers that flew away in the wind.  The one's who see a car on the side of the road and don't think twice before pulling over to help.The one's who don't think manners are a thing of the past. The people who don't see life as getting the next thing on their list done, but see life as a gift of love, that should be shared. 

To those people... Thank You. Although you deserve SO much more than that.  :)
