Saying thanks for a clear walkway

I work at a large university and have to walk a ways from where I park to where I work. It’s been snowing quite a bit this week and yet the walkways have been pretty clear (amazingly). This morning in the very cold temperatures I passed a guy who was busy shoveling the snow away. I stopped and thanked him and told him how much I appreciated his efforts so I could have a clear way to walk. It’s really hard work doing that – and I’m glad I don’t have to do it! He seemed surprised to be thanked – but very pleased. Take the time to say thank you to someone who is doing a job that makes your life easier or better – many times we appreciate these things but don’t tell those people – it’s nice to be appreciated!
