#1 This week I am thankful for two girls that I don’t know their name, I will never see them again, I learned very little about them, but we shared a cab to LaGuardia.
I was heading to the airport later than I anticipated because my boss is insensitive.
I searched for a cab for an hour in the cold. (Sadly, this is not an exaggeration.) I walked around. Chatted with other cab seekers. Had a few people step in front of me to grab “my” cab or run over to the one I had my eye on. Cab hunting is pretty cut throat. Especially, when there are so few to grab.
These two girls came over to me on the sidewalk and asked if I happened to be heading to LaGuardia.
Let’s team up to find a cab.
That is exactly what we did. And it still took 15 more minutes before we got one.
They were also there for work, but had both lived in NYC previously. They work in something with models. They went to Nicaragua for work once. They live in Toronto. And that is all I know about them, besides they flew Air Canada. They were the best part of my day and I am so thankful for those strangers.
We both barely made our flights.
#2 thing I’m thankful for is hugs.
This week was rough. Maybe everyone was sick of each other. Maybe some people just had a chip on their shoulder, but I felt at times I could cut the tension with a finger. It was terrible.
We were working on Karen's, one of my friends, account in NYC and I cannot explain how happy I was to hug her when we first saw each other and when I left. I almost cried both times. And when I left, I said, “Well, I’m happy I got to see you.”
Her hugs seriously saved me.
