Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Compliments Are Meant To Be Spoken


--by Mish, posted Aug 27, 2021
After spending 20 minutes on hold for Customer Service the sweetest gal came on the line. She had a gentle manner, went the extra mile & was very efficient.

At the end of our call, I thanked her for her time & patient assistance & told her it was a pleasure speaking with her. Her effusive sharing of appreciation of my words touched me deeply.

It made me happy to feel the heartfelt uplift in her spirit. So easy to simply let someone know you appreciate them. 👌🏻
