Day 10 of 100 Days of Gratitude
Thursday, February 16, 2017
I am grateful to live in a culture that is friendly with strangers. It's OK here to start up a conversation with someone next to you in the grocery line. I had a hard time finding an appropriate birthday card for my son whose heart is broken. The lady in line suggested 2 books which might help him through this tough time. She told me the library's used book store might have them. I went there...and suddenly she walked in, saw me and searched for the book. Another woman overheard us looking for the title and she joined the conversation saying, "That book saved my life when I was in a similar crisis 40 years ago."
I'm so grateful for "friends I just haven't met yet." I'll probably never see them again, but they were wonderful friends when I needed some.
