Great things about being blind. The kindness of the starbucks worker.

This morning on our way to yoga class, a woman approached us on the street to say that she worked at the starbucks near me. I had gone in there a few weeks back looking for one of their braille gift cards. They didn't have any left. In the mean time, I did find one at another store. But, this morningg she approached me, introduced herself, and said that she had gotten some more of the braille cards and had put a couple in the back for me if I needed one. I thought it was most kind and thoughtful of her. "After all," she said, "You need it more than the sighted people do. It makes it much easier for you to know what cards are in your wallet and which one the starbucks card is." She is so right. I do appreciate her kindness and thoughtfulness.
