i have a computer print out of an email i received on january 10, 2003. i printed it the day i got it and i believe at the time i folded it into my journal, but somehow it showed up in a box of papers i am going through while trying to organize my office.
it was just a kind word from a co-worker at the time that really hit home and made me feel good about myself at a time when those moments were few and far between in life. i have no idea where this person has gone, but their email made it to my 'keep' pile. its too bad they don't know that the moment they took to send a sweet thought over 6 years ago still makes me smile.
i should write people random thoughts of kindness more often.
