Saying Thank You

Here is a great email I received this weekend. Enjoy ~ Kat

"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy." -- Thich Nhat Hahn

Idea of the Week

"I work in a pharmacy, and I always tell everyone who I serve to "have a great day" as they leave, and I always add a smile. A few weeks ago a lady was in the pharmacy. She walked by me looking concentrated, but calm. I told her to "have a great day", and as usual, smiled at her. To my surprise, she broke down in tears. I don't know why she was crying, but it was pretty obvious that she must have been having a horrible day. She quickly said, "Thank you, that means more right now then you can imagine." And managed a smile, even though she was still crying. She was gone before I could reach out to her. But it really just goes to show how a couple words and a smile can really make someone's day."


  1. That is a great story, thank you for sharing.

  2. We just don't know what kind of day people are having and how we can impact them in the smallest form of kindness. Great reminder!


Looking forward to seeing how you made a difference today!
