Say "Thank You"!

We have a UPS delivery man that has delivered packages to the Alamo school about 3 times a week for the past 5 years or more . His name is Joseph and he is really a wonderful guy. Every time he walks into the school his energy and spirit light up the room! I decided to give him an East West Bok Fu Do sweatshirt as a thank you for all of his hard work. More importantly, I said “thank you” and told him how much we appreciated him. You could tell he was truly touched!

The power of saying thank you…

Tomorrow morning we will be doing a BFF workout called “12 Days of Bok Fu Christmas”. To keep it a fun surprise for those coming to the class, I won’t post the workout until tomorrow’s blog! Once it’s posted, I encourage you to try it for yourself!

    In a passing conversation yesterday, I found out that one of my fellow instructors did not receive a Secret Santa gift at the instructor holiday party. With the help of my daughter, we made a Toy Story fleece blanket and gave it to him today. To infinity and beyond!

    My grandmother feels like she is a burden to the family now, so I called and told her I would pick her up take her home and go grocery shopping with her. She looked at me and smiled and said I love you. We will be spending christmas eve together for dinner. I would like to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to my East West family and East West is the best.

    I haven’t found my random act of kindness for today but when I thought about it, just going about your day looking for opportunities to be kind results in many small random acts of kindness. I’m finding that it is just a kinder way of being…letting someone go ahead of you at the store, giving up a good parking spot, smiling as you pass by someone, folding someone’s laundry, giving someone a compliment. It’s a different focus…outward…toward others…and it feels good.

    Some of my brother’s friends were having trouble with their computer, and I helped them get it working again.

    12/24, Christmas Eve, J & I called his dad in Pennsylvania to wish him a Merry Christmas. He told us that he broke his favorite soup spoon and it’s hard for him to eat soup now. J’s dad had a few strokes resulted to partial paralyzed and parkinson’s decease which make it hard for him to move around, and even feeding himself. He love the Asian soup spoon which is deep and is ceramic, so it doesn’t burn his mouth when eating soup. I went to the Asian grocery store and bought a 1/2 dozen soup spoons; we shipped them to him over night so he could have the spoons the next day. I believe they’ll put a smile on his face when receiving the spoons.

    The uhaull line to return the truck was full of cranky people, the computers were down and only one person to handle the customers. When my turn came, the clerk was not going to hear all the complaints about something he has no control. Instead a smile and thank you for doing his best to help prosess things and a wishes for a happy holiday were my interactions.. nothing major but it did the trick.. he looked releved and smiled back.
    Smiles are contagious be a carrier.
