The Little Things

When I pulled into the gas station yesterday, a truck arrived at the same time--he signaled me to go first.

When I was waiting to pull out of the gas station, a car stopped and signaled me to pull into the lane.

And, when I stopped at the traffic light, a different car pulled up beside me to tell me that I had forgot to put my gas cap on.

Three separate, considerate acts in the space of ten minutes!

It meant a lot to me, because when I first moved to Halifax 25 years ago, I was thrill with how considerate and generous the people were in traffic. Everyone worked together. I told people, Halifax is the biggest, small town in Canada (due to their values, courtesy and friendliness). I haven't said this for some time.

Yesterday made me remember why I loved Halifax in the first place. Thank you.
