I’m Your Huckleberry ~ 6-30-11

A few days ago I posted a story, Maybe Tomorrow She’ll Wave!, about a young lady I occasionally cross paths with at the park where I walk the dog each morning and afternoon. I didn’t see her today, but had another interesting and pleasing encounter.

The crew that mows and trims the grass at the park was busy shaping things up when I got to the park this morning, with two guys riding mowers and several others using trimmers and edgers.

As the dog and I got close to one of the riding mowers, I was debating going a different route, but decided the timing would work out, and continued the way we were going. I was shocked when we got closer to the mower, and the operator stopped and shut off the machine. He smiled and waited as I walked past, and I stopped and thanked him for the courtesy.

You should have seen the smile on his face! He made my day by being courteous, and I made his by recognizing his thoughtfulness and thanking him for it.

    Great story!! The world needs a little more common courtesy.

  2. A small act of kindness goes a long way!
    Heartwarming 🙂

  3. Random acts of kindness paid forward reaps return investment … a win-win situation … I love when that happens! This would have lifted my spirits like a bouquet of balloons! 😀

    • I agree, and it certainly did lift my spirits! Things like this renew my hope for us all.
      Thanks for the read and comment!

    Generally in life small things matter a lot and makes you feel awesome.. I liked the way you reciprocated 🙂

    • I vascilate between the concepts that everything matters, and nothing matters. Everything matters in the sense that it is all good, and nothing matters in the sense that it is all good!
      Thanks for the read and comment!
