“A smile.” That’s what I was sure the answer would be. So imagine my pleasant surprise as I continued reading & discovered your kind & generous gesture. We freely complain about the most minute detail, but are truly taken aback when someone, particularly a stranger, does something thoughful for us. How sad. It’s almost as if we’re suspicious of this kind act.
Life has challenges that don’t always have an out; sometimes life feels like an obstacle course, & I imagine how lovely it would be to be a recipient of such a token that says, “I see you. Whatever it is you’re going through, keep going. You’re worth it.”I too will borrow this idea & use it as a tool to acknowledge others. We are in this journey together; what a great way to symbolize solidarity. Thank you for a well written, enlightening piece.
