DAY 290: Thanking a Gloria Jean’s franchise profusely

18 Jun

EXPRESSING gratitude, it’s said, is one of the most positive things you can do for your well-being.

Stopping in at Gloria Jean’s this morning, for the sort of white mocha atrocity most Melbourne coffee joints point-blank refuse to deliver, I notice the board plastered with good tidings from happy customers.

Sometimes it’s a customer who is heartbroken to be moving to a different town from their favourite barista. Sometimes it’s a customer sending a postcard from overseas. Customers express sorrow that they will never again see the kind faces of this franchise, or joy that they have finally found the soy latte of their dreams.

I’m moved to add my own missive in similarly bouncy writing. The most honest, positive thing I can say is that I’m very pleased there’s a coffee joint the moment I step off my train. This, still, is passing on the love.

Keeper? Yes. And I think I’ll do a whole day of thanking people later this week. Watch out!
