I’ve had a lot of ups and downs this week, but the end of the week, I have to make the observation that there is a lot of good in people.  I’ve seen a couple examples of goodness this week that just brought a lump to my throat.

First of all, on Thursday, I went in to work for a couple hours to help make pies.  I ended up staying considerably longer because we got SO busy.  We had a table full of crabby old people who weren’t happy with anything, especially their “cremated” toast.  But, when those crabby old people left, they paid the bill for the meals of the two young National Guard personel sitting by the door.  That’s the second time this winter I’ve seen older people pay for service men’s meals.  It just warms my heart.

The other kindness that got me all misty eyed was last night at my kid’s prom.  Actually there were several examples of kindness among teenagers that were heart warming.  The first was that someone was willing to be my daughter’s escort.  There aren’t a lot of guys who are comfortable with being seen with the biggest girl in school, but he did it with a smile on his face.

Then there’s a new girl in school.  Poor girl is homely, chunky and had to change schools her senior year and she’s on crutches.  She wasn’t even going to go to prom, but the other girls talked her into it.  Because my daughter and her escort were the third couple thru the grand march, he was able to get in line again and take the new girl thru grand march at the end so she could participate.  I thought that was so sweet.

These kids are so good at including everybody, they even made sure the mentally handicapped boy had a date.  A girl from the town where I live went with him.  she’s got a good looking college boyfriend, but she was kind enough when asked by a friend, to go with this boy.

I also listened to my son’s probation officer give my son a talking to this week.  I was amazed to realize that this man actual cares about his job and wants to help these kids he’s working with.  The last po my son had was just in it because it was a job.

After this week, my faith in my fellow man is a little restored.
