My mom unexpectedly sent me a card - yes, in the actual mail - to essentially tell me that she was proud of how I've handled the past year, which has been harder than others. It was such a bright spot in my day, and made me so thankful for the amazing support system in my life.


My friend Eric accompanied me to Subway today even though he didn't need to get food. He was simply there to hang out.



I woke up with a nasty cold but didn't have any Airborne to toss in my water before class. After grabbing some from the campus grocery store and trying to open it while walking, I accidentally tossed it across the sidewalk. A stranger stopped, picked it up, and handed it back to me. Just a small, nice gesture.
