Day 22- “Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds”

Day 22 – “Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds,” as so profoundly spoken in Bohemian Rhapsody (fav movie ever), have stuck in my mind along with the many tunes and lyrics from an amazing movie.  And on this Friday morning, the day before spring break, and continued with my every Friday morning ritual, Panera on 75th. There is a reason I like this particular Panera … and this morning, it was an ‘extra’oradinary visit.  I was greeted by the young woman that always greets me by name and always asks how I’m doing and what my plans for the weekend are and I genuinely respond back with questions about her weekend … I can feel the many good thoughts this young woman projects in my direction.  Then there was the older woman at the sugar and creamer station who was putting the finishing touches on her hot beverage. She hands me a sleeve to put on my to go cup. I hadn’t reached for one or gestured or anything, just a good deed for the sake of being kind. And finally, as I was leaving, a woman was entering, and she held the door so that I could exit first, and she told me to have a great Friday; what good words from a complete stranger.  This morning, I relived a line from my favorite movie, a line that holds a lot of power, a line that can change the course of one’s day, and this morning, that ‘one’ that I am referring to is me … “Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds.”
