|I know I've shared this before, but it's so relevant to my life I couldn't help but share it again. Also, it has nothing to do with the post that is to follow...or maybe it will. Who knows? Guess you'll have to read on to find out.|
I looked up and the professor is staring at me with these terribly sad look in his eye. I asked if everything was alright and he said, "You know, it is now. People just don't say 'good morning' like they used to. Thank you for saying that to me today. I needed it."
I was floored. Something so simple and small that I didn't even think twice about made his day. And he's right, people don't say it as much anymore. Why? I'm not sure. To me, there is something about those pleasantries that is dear to me.
Moral of the story, say "Good morning" (or afternoon or evening depending on your time zone) to someone today. Never know when it might benefit you both.
