A Cup of Kindness

Your-Communication-Connection-Speaker-Colette-CarlsonEven motivational speakers gain inspiration to be a kinder, more generous human being after reading about individuals like John Lohan, a 49-year-old Boston bus driver.

During a recent, sweltering hot day Lohan asked riders if he could make a stop at a lemonade stand passed by on the route earlier that day. Thankfully, the passengers weren’t in a hurry and Lohan was near the end of his route.

Can you imagine the joy of the child who had not just one customer, but a busload pull up to buy a cup of cold lemonade? Oh yea, Lohan treated.

Not sure how you feel, but my cup of gratitude for kind individuals like Lohan is overflowing.

  1. I love stories like this Colette!  Makes me want to go out and get a job as a bus driver so I can do this too. :)

  2. Oh, Colette, that is a wonderful story! Thank you so much for sharing that! It made me smile – and quite frankly, I could use a smile today. Yes, even motivational speakers need help remembering to smile!
