I really try to live a happy and joyful life. I am working hard on being more balanced so that when life throws some curveballs at me, I can take things better with stride.

However, no matter what may be going on inside, I always try to have a genuine smile on my face, and that is one of the things I am known for. At work, I am “Sunshine.”

This week, I have started working full time again in the office since medical leave. I got the “how are you?”, “welcome back,” “nice to see you,” etc.

During break, I got a “how are you doing today, Mercedita?” with a genuine smile from a Contractor helping me out on a project, and I felt his genuine concern for my wellbeing, also. I truly felt, at that moment, that someone cared.

Usually, I am the one who asks after everyone, so to get asked that, with a genuine concern to boot, it really warmed my heart.

So I am grateful that this person, S, took the time to ask after me, because sunshines like me, need that too, and we are absolutely floored and grateful when asked.
