A Good Day
« on: May 18, 2014, 04:24:08 pm »
Hello to all of my friends around the world.
Today was a good day for me.
I work at a hospital emergency room as a security officer. There are days that I seem to see only the pain and suffering of people..for 8 to 12 hrs a shift. To say the least..there are times it takes a toll on person.
Today, a lady came in for an administrative matter. I didn't recognize her but helped her with her issues.
As she was leaving, she said she wanted to thank me for all of my compassion and help during her husbands visit last week. She said that, of all the people here, that she especially wanted to say thank you to me because I was so helpful and compassionate during her husbands emergency (heart issue). and helped to take away some of her worry and stress.
She said "thank you so very much for what you do".
Needless to say, I had a smile a mile wide  :D and told her "thank you ma'am....you made my day".
As my wife kids me sometimes "Your Buddha-fu" is strong"  :namaste:
Just wanted to remind everybody that it's what you do in everyday life that makes the difference, sometimes when you least expect it.
Regards,
Dennie

I am glad you had a good day Dennie.
It is always nice to feel appreciated.  :hug:

As you saw today, having compassion for others can be beneficial for them, as well as you.

We should try to show compassion at every point in our lives, we would all suffer much less.

Sometimes even somebody holding the door open for me is enough to turn my entire day around, and I think all day about what a wonderful person that was, and that is just over something small and seemingly unimportant.

Point being, we should all show love to one another, it is beneficial for everyone.

Thanks for sharing.
