I had great intentions of doing something nice for our mail carrier and sanitation crews over the holidays. With the girlies in kindergarten and me being back at work full-time, though, my intentions these days don’t always make it into actions.
We’ve had a crazy amount of snow over the past three weeks (relative to our area, anyway), and I thought this would be a great time to say “thank you” to the folks who’ve continued to work, oftentimes much later hours than they normally would, to keep things rolling during this weather.
They were giddy to leave this in the mailbox on Saturday morning. And they were ecstatic to get a thank-you note in return from the mail carrier, saying we’d made her day.
Later in the week, we’ll tape a little package (wrapped in a zip-seal bag) to the top of the garbage can, and we’ll try to catch the recycling crew early Friday morning.
I love seeing the girls excited about doing something for someone else, and I was reminded it doesn’t take much to make someone else’s day.
