How much do we appreciate nice people being nice, going out of their way, or just being kind? Especially when we are frazzled, worried (about something they did not do and have no power over). That happened to me today and two people were so lovely to me – let me say that people are normally lovely to me – and it’s something I appreciate every day – a lot.
I had to go BACK to the hospital (the entire time being appreciative of the fact that I am a person with insurance, in a country with excellent medical care and I CAN go to the hospital) today for the ultrasound of the thyroid and a chest x-ray and I was more afraid than I admitted to myself I think. The “C” word is scary stuff, no matter where they find it eh? Even if they are only looking for it!
There was a lady at the x-ray department who came out to tell me why there was a delay – NOT her job, but very reassuring. There was a young man who helped me jolly myself out of frustration with the cable/internet company while trying to complete the simple chore of securing my new network – while we were dealing with talking over the sound of the water-sucking device my landlord was using in the bathroom! I was laughing by the end, and told him to take the rest of the day off!
So be nice to the next cranky or worried person you encounter, and thank the next nice person to do so for you eh?
Did you hear about the “Google dip”? Apparently from the beginning to the end of the Inaugural Address by the new president we all pushed back from our keyboards to listen! An immediate spike followed. How cool is that?
Keep safe and well my lovely readers, I think about all our health these days – really take this body for granted when it’s working… I'm documenting as much as I can about my experiences as I know when we are feeling well enough (you know who you are) we put off going to the doctor. Perhaps something that happens here will help some of you.
