Many times, we go through life oblivious to those around us. Many people work in thankless jobs that are wearying emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. These include servers, cleaners, fast food workers, garbage collectors, nannies and many more people.
As a child, I began to notice these people who seemed as forgotten as me. Thus, they deserved my thanks and attention. People look at me strange when I thank them for mopping the floor or buckling me into the roller coaster. However, I hope that my short words touch them.
Showing unexpected love to those who are often ignored is very important. This touches not only them but us as well as we become more perceptive and open to the needs of others. We all need to realize every member of our community and how we all make an impact on the world. Even those who have seemingly unimportant jobs are people with struggles, joys, and ways of changing society for the better.
