I have been debating when my first day would be. I guess I wanted to start off my first 29 days with a "bang". Today, however, the opportunity just came to me. I was eating lunch with my daughter and we were sitting right behind the hostess station. The hostess was about 21 and greeted everyone so warmly and happily that I really noticed her. (I must admit I generally don't pay much attention to the hostess.) Every so often, maybe only 2 or 3 times during the hour we were there, she had a minute to breathe between people coming and going and in those moments I could catch a glimpse of how tired she was. Upon leaving, she once again gave us that bright smile and I smiled back while passing her $10. She tried to wave it away with an "Oh, no..." and I replied "You don't get enough appreciation for standing here all day. It's yours." Her eyes widened and she began to thank me profusely, I just gave her a wink and a wave and went out the door. I can't wait for tomorrow!
