Dear Topix Readers:

So many times I come on here and read negative topix that are slanderous and hurtful to others. For once, why don't we have a thread where we say NICE things about other people.(If you have something bad to say about anyone we mention in this thread, I would really personally appreciate it if just once, you would refrain from saying it.) I would like this thread to contain ONLY nice things about other people.

Okay, I will start.

1) Chris Cross:(the Manager at Family Video on the By-Pass) Mr. Cross is always very nice and pleasant whenever we go there. He is always ready with a smile and kind word. Also, one night I was awake and couldn't sleep. I had some movies to return and wanted to rent another one, but didnt realize it was closing time. So, I put my movies in the box and started to walk away. But, Mr. Cross actually very kindly unlocked the door and invited me in! He said he had a few more closing duties to attend to and if I would like to rent something, then for me to please come on in and look around. I couldn't believe it! Such random acts of kindness are so very rare! I thanked him profusely, but he just humbly shrugged off my praise.

(Oh, one more thing I best mention for you cynics! I am just a middle-aged overweight Mom, who had on no makeup and unwashed hair. I looked rougher than a night in jail! So, he had no ulterior motive at all other than kindness.)

2) Diane Eison-Simmons: She was one of my high school English teachers. She was always prepared for class and was very smart and witty. She made the dullest subjects interesting and engaging. I was a shy, quiet wallflower, but she made an effort each day to make me speak and helped to draw me out of my shell. She was also such a kind person, that she made me want to be a better person, just to live up to the expectations she had of me. Although I haven't seen her in 25 years, I will never forget her. The world needs more people like her.

3)Anita Sandidge Simpson: She sent me a card once after I got home from the hospital, and felt all alone, and like no one cared. She will never know how much that simple gesture meant to me.

4) The thin, black woman who cleans the rooms on the 5th floor of the Medical Center: I wish I knew her name, but I hope someone tells her about this thread. I have been on that floor many times (7 last year), and each time, she has been the housekeeper who cleaned my room. Even though she has a crappy job, each day she entered my room with a smile on her face and always went above and beyond her job. She was always so helpful, kind and cheerful that each time I left, I wanted to pack her up in my suitcase and take her home with me!

I can think of so many more, but my meds are starting to kick in and I am starting to get pretty sleepy. But I hope when I wake tomorrow, I see that this is a very long thread where people raise each other up, instead of tear each other down.

Let's use this thread to perform random acts of kindness by praising other people!:)
