Thought Question #77

There are many. Some that weren't even as much on purpose as quite by accident. Some stand out, like people helping me during the car accidents that I've had. People being really nice to me at unexpected moments. People making me laugh. People being there when I need them. Family showing me they care more than I thought they did. Realizing someone has actually been listening to you. Realizing someone cares for you more than you ever thought possible.

There are so many things. Small gestures. Surprises. Gentleness. Understanding. Small things... turned big.

Please share yours?

My teacher hugged me once.

She said if I ever needed anyone to talk to, she would always listen...

I was at the end. I had lost everything in my life.

I was buying beer at a convenience store, barely holding back tears when a man standing next to me touched my shoulder, and whispered, "You know it gets better, you just need something to hold onto."

When I turned to look for him, he was gone. I still think about him.
