"Nothing is ever lost by courtesy. It is the cheapest of the pleasures; costs nothing and conveys much. It pleases him who gives and him who receives, thus, like mercy, is twice blessed."--Erastus Wiman
As I re-read yesterday's post, I realized that it sounded a bit harsh and condemning. That is not my intention for this blog. Today, I'd like to give an example of a courtesy extended to me.
A couple of weeks ago, I sent a thinking-of-you card to a friend. I was rewarded in her thanks to me, both in person and in writing. Can you believe it? She sent me a card thanking me for sending her a card. This lady takes courtesy to a whole new level. Her thoughtfulness elevated my simple act and lifted my heart.
Joy for today: being twice blessed by a courtesy.
