Make Someone's Day

It's not that difficult to do! I try to ride the commuter bus to work at least once a week. It is a new, very comfortable bus with a total of five stops. I get on at the second stop and ride to the end. It’s a forty minute ride. For the first time this morning I got on and there were no seats left. That has never happened. Then—a voice from the rear of the bus—“Cindy, Cindy, come back here.” A man I serve on a board with gave me his seat! Oh my gosh – it made my day. I am perfectly capable of standing and would not have expected that of anyone—and definitely would not have been upset if I had to stand for the ride—but it was sooo nice. How easy it can be to make someone’ s day. Try it. Everybody wins!
