Just Nice

I've been running errands this morning and have been struck by how nice everyone has been.  From the bank, to the oil change place (where they didn't try to sell me several other services), to the drive thru where both people I interacted with smiled genuine smiles. 

Sounds silly, but they reminded me that I have a good life.   

It also made me wonder why I even noticed it.  Shouldn't it always be like this?  In a day when so many of us (yes--I'm just as guilty) complain, make passive aggressive remarks or boast on facebook, it's refreshing to interact with others who just seem glad to be alive. 

Makes me stop to wonder if others feel refreshed or beat-down after they leave an interaction with me. 

Food for thought...
