1. Nurses. It's National Nurses Week, and as the daughter of an R.N., I know how hard they work, how incredibly dedicated they are, how important the care they provide is.
2. Cheerful people who do their jobs well. There is a small coffee shop/restaurant in the building where I work, and I often stop in there first thing in the morning to grab a bagel or a cup of tea. The folks that work there are, without fail, cheerful, chatty and happy to serve. I always walk out of there with a smile.
3. Phone calls from loved ones. What a true gift it is to hear the voice of someone you love, but don't get to see frequently. We take it for granted, don't we?
