Unbelievable kindness, smiling intrigue

Bah! I missed posting a Smiling Sunday post, but for good reason. ::wicked grin::

So, I'll try to make it up with a multi-part post today.

Unbelievable kindness.
A sincere hug. A kiss of appreciation. A kind word.
These things make my heart swell with warmth that I'm worried it might burst.

* While changing over my service due to my move to a new apartment, the Comcast lady wished me luck on my move. (which was probably a good customer service move, but still)
* While calling Unemployment to let them know that I was now employed, they congratulated me. (which was probably part of their job, but still)
* After offering condolences and tried to cheer up an elderly customer whom had always been extremely kind to me (especially when I first started at the bank) after learning of the death of her husband, she thanked me and told me that she loved me, which quickly brought me to tears.
* The simple act of handholding (timeless, sweet, kind)

Things that make me smile:

A bakery in town, which has been satisfying my want for petit fours has started offering macaron tops for 65 cents a piece.
Delicious, crisp, delicate, f-ing tasty!
My mouth is watering just thinking about them.

I'm probably going to end up buying like a million of them on my lunch break tomorrow. I just hope that I don't shove them all into my mouth and die of a macaron overload. (though that wouldn't be such a bad way to go)

Seeing people not give up on what they want.

And pretty much all of Sunday made me smile.

Also, intrigue!
