Some morning we don’t realize that waking up and just greeting people with kindness and laughter is the best thing that you can do. Sometimes it is the only thing we have. It doesn’t take money; it doesn’t take grand gestures of service trips to make a significant impact in the world today. This morning Mr. Cab driver you demonstrated that simple gesture, and I wanted to thank you for allowing me to witness and get a glimpse into your world of kindness.
I thank you for giving me the gift of the fondness you showed to the women that you pick up every morning to take to work. You apparently are the light to her world. If you didn’t ever show up again, have you thought about the impact that would have on her? You get out and greet her with a genuine smile. She is nearing the end of her journey, but I would take a bet that you help to light up her youthfulness. You help warm her heart and let her know that she is loved.
The simple conversation. The way you laugh just like old time friends. The way you look at her value in this world. Sir Cab driver you are extremely rare! Your life of hard work has not hardened your heart, and that is so warm to see. You have a real gift of letting people feel safe and important. I applaud you and thank you for showing me that.
I also want to thank you for allowing strangers to fill your smile. You don’t always know who is going to get into your cab. You genuinely open your heart and your ears to learn from them. I hope that when someone feels that the world has lost all the good, that they get a ride in your Cab!
I am glad to get that off my chest... Story of failures and success and failures and success and failures and success... I think that you get it! Don't ever give up on creating the passion and potential that lives inside of you a tangible reality to rock your world.
