There are many unsung heroes in our daily lives. Too often they are considered to be just doing their job. Maybe they are, but I think it is much more than that. I appreciate these people.
I am talking about the cashier who takes the time to pull out a coupon for something I am purchasing. There is also the bagger who double bags my cans because we all know the bags will inevitably split from the weight.
I am grateful for the auto service guy who went out to my car to help me re-program my phone to my car after a computer update messed it up. And, I am also grateful for the young mechanic who was so nice in adding air to my tires on the busy and freezing cold, rainy morning.
I am so very thankful for my local pharmacy staff. The technicians treat every medication with detailed care. They make sure that each one is processed in the best, most cost-effective way for us. They check with our doctor, insurance, and include any coupon to help with cost control. This great pharmacy staff also makes sure that we fill our medications on time, for continued care for routine issues.
I am also thankful for the mail clerk who takes the time to put extra tape on a faulty envelope. There is the UPS man who makes sure to leave packages where they stay safe and dry. I appreciate him, too.
There are many people who I encounter throughout my daily routine. I am especially grateful for the ones who take an extra moment to reach out and care about how their job affects me. It makes the difference. I am sure to thank them. I then pass that extra-care on to others that I meet throughout my day.
I am always appreciative of what others do for me. I am also thankful for the opportunity to make the difference for others. I believe that karma can be a wonderful thing, when we make it so.
