It takes a second to make someone's day

Everyday I have to pass through a security barrier and the guard stands in the road by the barrier in all types of weather. He waves everyone through, deals with inquiries - all in a days work.
I realised that he doesnt actually "talk" to anyone. So I slowed my car and rolled down the window had a lovely chat with a special thank you to him and went on my way. The beaming smile I got made my day. Each succesive day this last week I have done the same when I have seen a new guard and each and every day the reaction is priceless. A little thing which took little time and no cost but each day I felt I had made a difference.
