Friends & Strangers

If you follow me on Twitter (and if you don’t, why the hell not?), you’ll know that I’ve been pretty stressed this week. The hows and whys aren’t really important, but the main point is, I’ve had better weeks. I asked for friends to drop me a note just to say hi today, and they did far beyond what I asked for. I’m truly lucky to have such amazing people in my life.

I was driving to the supermarket this evening, and as I stopped at a traffic light, I looked over at the pickup truck to my left. A young boy, probably a year or two younger than my daughter, was leaning out the window, a bored look on his face. He looked over at me and waved, a faint smile growing on his face. I waved back, and then the truck moved off and away. But that moment of random friendliness really made my day.

And this, folks, is a big reason why I’m such a fan of the human race.

  1. Neff, I adore you and the fact that people (both online and f2f) came out to support/encourage/fist bump you is a testament to the person that you are and the kindness that you’ve shown others over the years. Many hugs.

  2. Thank you so much, Dani. 🙂
