Thankful 4 - Little Kindnesses

There's very little in the way of politeness or courtesy anymore.  So, it always strikes me by surprise when someone (truth be told, specifically men) hold open a door, or lets someone else take their seat on the T, or just says, "Hello" while walking down the street.  It can even be as simple as trying to be kind.

Those little actions don't have to mean anything.  They don't need to be interpreted in any other way.  Sometimes, they're just nice and being kind.

Sometimes, these little kindnesses mean so much to someone who's had a difficult time seeing anything positive.  Sometimes, these little kindnesses are a breath of fresh, crisp air in a clouded, smokey moment.  Sometimes, these little kindnesses help brings them back to the fact that there are still so many things to be thankful for.
