While you were out having a good time with friends and family on New Years Eve, did you notice the people working? They have friends and family too, but they gave up their night (whether it was by force or by choice) to serve you.
The police and fire departments were on call the entire night just incase you got into trouble. They never get a real holiday; they always put the well being of their city first.
Although many businesses were closed for the holidays, several others stayed open for your New Years celebrations. Whether you hit the bars or went out to dinner, you experienced the kindness of those who gave up their night so that you could have a better New Years Eve.
On New Years Day when the night before got the best of you, who delivered your pizza? Who handed you your coffee at the drive-thru window? They probably celebrated New Years the night before too and they also made it to work to next day.
The people on the clock while the rest of us were ringing in the New Year deserve a figurative round of applause. God bless them all!
This week’s Character Patrol was brought to you by me, Jessica Root.
Be inspired to notice the random acts of kindness that are part of every day.
