Aren't they? They just are. I have bumped into so many amazing people throughout my life and i just managed to bump into a few more. How I love my people from Nova Scotia, from Saskatchewan, from Iowa, from Toronto, the UK, Australia, and BC. All so different but so so incredibly interesting and wonderful.
Yesterday I got to meet some more folks that live in New Zealand. Such folks are what my father would say 'good types'. I can see why my brother has made his home here. Not just lush landscape and perfect weather, but lovely folks that are so great to spend time with.
I used to think that the best people only came from harsh climates. I figured when you endure tough conditions as a group a sort of empathy for each other develops and people are kind. I'm not sure I'm right about that anymore.
And as much as we hear all the terrible stories about terrible deeds all of the time, it's good to remember there are armies of kind people with good intentions that aren't doing terrible deeds. Just being kind in the ways that they know how. Every day.
I don't know, there are days when I get mighty discouraged with the world, but today I am feeling optimistic. And why not. Yay to the good kind people of the world. I am so glad to know some of you. I bet there are even more kind folks that we don't even know yet. I can hardly wait to get out there.
Yeah, and I just took all of my back pills, so gimpy girl will be out and mobile any minute now.
