An Open Thank You to a Complete Stranger Who showed Me Kindness While I Cried my Eyes Out

bathroom stallsJust a few hours ago, I was crying in the bathroom at work softly (or so I thought).

A woman who had just finished washing her hands asked me if I needed some water and I said, “No, thank you. I’m fine,” in what must have been a very unconvincing voice.

She left the bathroom and I struggled to pull myself together. I got up and blew my nose, trying to not blow snot over myself when I heard the bathroom door open again.She was back with a handful of soft tissues. You know those special kind with the lotion on them?

She handed them under the stall door and said, “Here. These are a lot softer than toilet paper.”

I took them and choked out the words thank you and she left me to clean myself up. After she left I just started crying harder than before. Her kindness was exactly what I needed. It was such a small thing to do, but I felt so overwhelmed with the sense that everything will be okay.

I just want her to know how much I appreciate her kindness. Since I don’t know who this person was because I couldn’t see her through the stall, I’ll probably never get the chance to thank her.

  1. You never know… it might have been your Guardian Angel you’re very special friend and whatever cause your sadness no that someone’s watching over you.Hugs♥


  2. I suspect it may have been that somewhat mysterious, “Teary-Eyed Tissue Fairy” that I’ve heard spoken of from time to time, and if not, perhaps one of her equally mysterious, “Teary-Eyed Tissue Fairy’s Teeny-Tiny But Totally Terrific and Terribly Trustworthy Helpers”. They also get around quite a bit from what I’m told. I hope you are feeling much better now. 😉
