Last week I flew to Washington, DC. and my seat was to be assigned at the gate. The flight attendant had my boarding pass already printed and let me know he had given me a window seat in the last row. Prior to boarding time, I was called to report back to the desk where I was told that the people in my row had a service dog. I said it was OK, that I love dogs! The attendant kindly explained that the new window seat was better because the seat can recline and I would be more comfortable. I felt cared about! How important it is that we each feel cared about as we care for others. Kindness matters! We can offer and receive kindness for free - even in these tough economic times!
