It takes kind to know kind

Picking up my new eyeglasses at BJs I noticed how different my interaction was with Ann-Marie, the optometrist there. She was extremely positive about my new glasses, and frankly about everything else. You can’t fake caring. She was genuinely trying to make my day better, and she did the same to a co-worker that was wandering by. 

There was nothing specific, nothing I could put my finger on. There was no script for her to follow. When you know, you know.

I thanked her for being kind. Without a thought she said, “It takes kind to know kind.”

What an affirming return gift for gratitude expressed! 

What do you notice? And what do you affirm in others? 

If you see a kindness, it means you too…are kind.
