Morning in America
She gave me the news this morning, along with my large French Vanilla coffee.
My Dunkin' Donuts lady is leaving. In two weeks.
She got a better job, one with more humane hours (and bosses), one that is better for her and her family. It's at the local hospital. I'm not sure what exactly she'll be doing or if my generic reference letter played a part in this, but there was no mistake from her smile that this is a step up for her, a better move.
She saw what she needed to do, and she did it. And I couldn't be any happier.
She gives me an espresso shot of hope, that somehow, maybe, things in this crazy negative world might get a little bit better.
That for at least one person I care about, it really is morning in America.
