A Frazzled and Thankful Kat

Yesterday I ran into a wall of human meanness and out right rudeness.

I can't go into details as it was work related...but suffice to say--I walked away a very frazzled angry Kat.

I just don't understand the mentality of meanness. Of unprovoked rudeness. At 42 years of age I've smacked up against it from time to time, but every time, every time... it leaves me puzzled and dispirited.

The positive note on this frustrating day is the people that know me who went of their way, when they saw my anger, to help soothe me.

Every little thing that they did to help make my day brighter helped fill up that empty feeling that the frustrating encounter had left me with.

Friends joking with me to lighten my mood, and my loved one fussing over me, making a picnic of snacks and hovering by me while we ate...listening while I ranted.

I pocketed every little act of kindness inside me for I value it for the wonderful gift it is.

And I thank you for making me smile in what was a grey and dismal day.

If I were there, I'd have given you a dollar.

Dollars always make me smile.

I'm returning the favor of doling out *hugs* and *hello kitties*. They made my day when I needed them, so I know they will help you!

Things like that never fail to knock me off my feet--I am always amazed, it is so foreign to me.

I am thinking it is the change in weather. At the least the thought gives me hope. :)

Cruelty to animals falls under this same category for me - just can't wrap my brain around someone who doesn't love cats.

Revenge isn't the answer, but if I could, I'd lock all the mean people up and make them listen to the same Paris Hilton song for eternity.

I hope you're doing better. :)
