In a world where complaining seems to be the norm, it's important to remember the power of compliments and kindness, and how big of a difference they can make in someone's life!


I've never been one to complain about anything, ever.

If my food order is wrong, I still eat it.

If the checkout line is way too long, I patiently wait my turn.

It is so much easier to give compliments and find the positives in everything, in my opinion.  That's why I have to acknowledge a sweet encounter I had with my DoorDasher the other day!

Open Letter To The Sweet Rockford Doordasher Who Made My Day

I ordered breakfast to be delivered to work the other day and it was possibly the best decision I have made in a while.

My DoorDasher, Michelle, arrived with my food and I ran out to get it so she didn't have to get out of the car.

She handed me my food and before I headed back inside she said, "I don't want to be weird but I love listening to you on the radio!"

I was already having a rough morning to begin with, so that comment turned my entire day upside down.  It's just the little things, like that interaction, that I really cherish.

It's not every day someone acknowledges that they hear me on the radio.  It's also pretty rare that someone has the confidence to be kind without seeking something in return.

So I just wanted to give a big shoutout to Michelle for being an overall wonderful human and making my day a little brighter.
