The Receptionist’s Smile September 6, 2012 – Posted by LucyStar
Being chronically ill, I have made quite a few visits to the doctor’s office.

Over the visits, I’ve noticed how big a difference it makes when the receptionist greets me with a smile and a pleasant tone. It just makes my entire day a little better, and the illness a little easier to bear! Plus, it puts me in a mood to smile at other people and spread the joy.

While thinking about this, I had a follow-up thought: I wish these individuals, who are only bypassers in my life, knew how much their smiles actually mean to me!

And as soon as I had the thought, I realized that it is possible– I can tell them. 🙂

So I gathered some materials, sat down, and wrote cards to all the different offices– from taxi companies to doctors’ offices– thanking them for being so pleasant and helpful. As soon as I finished, I eagerly mailed them off.

Though I won’t be there to see their faces when they read the cards, I hope they feel appreciated and that the notes put smiles on their faces the way they put a smile on mine!
