Today three different people helped me realize just how little it takes to make me happy.
The day started with a box coming in the mail. It was full of concert t-shirts sent by the tour manager of the last show that came to our performing arts center. He sent enough for the entire staff.
I’ll probably never wear the t-shirt, but it was very thoughtful of him to thank us for our efforts in that way.
Then, when the part-time box office associate arrived in the afternoon, she brought me a chocolate milkshake. Probably the best chocolate shake I’ve ever had.
She wasn’t buttering me up or want something in return. She brought it because it was Friday.
A bit later I had a meeting with a board member and he gave me a small bouquet of flowers, because I’ve been “working hard.”
They were my favorites too, daisies.
All these things happening on the same day was a wonderful coincidence, but any one of them alone still would have put a smile on my face.
None of these people spent a lot of money. They just thought of me and their random acts of kindness made me feel special.
I told you it doesn’t take much to make me happy.
