Looking for Anna

Ellen Canty - coffee

My daughter Ellen is in great form …I am so thrilled for her that life is going so well. She is enjoying her job, she is doing really well in a beauty course that she is doing at night and personally things seem to be fitting into place.

You’re doing great” I said to her early one morning when she grabbed a lift from me to get to work.

I am” she admitted, “I’m in great form

As usual, not leaving anything alone I probed to see why life was so good and it was a mixture of everything that was going on in her life.

Coffee Pod, Winthrop StreetOne tiny but huge factor she attributes to her daily happiness is Anna – every morning before work she grabs a coffee at the Coffee Pod on Winthrop Street in Cork and Anna always sets her in great form with her cheery manner and warm greeting …isn’t life simple ?

Well done to Anna and all the other Anna’s out there, who put us in good form every day by the little, but huge things that they do …. I’ll be calling to the Coffee Pod soon to look for Anna to say thank you.

The small things we do can make a huge difference..

    Greg, great story!

    I was in Starbucks on College Green last week and I was so pleased to get a nudge on the shoulder from a barista whom recognised me from her time at the Liffey Valley branch and she was also (like most in that branch) extremely courteous – every visit. It was regrettable that I didnt catch her name, nor did she have a badge on and my 3yr old was moving about quite a bit whilst I waited so I had to dash quite quickly.

    It really is the simple things and communications/pleasantries is key.

    hashtag positivity !

    There used to be a girl called Kim in our local café out here in Northpoint who never failed to cheer me up when I went over. I miss her!

    Those kinds of warm, banterful conversations can illuminate a black day. I went to a women’s gym a good few years ago. After a day of writing alone, the cheerful chat of the staff reminded me that it was good to be alive.

    One also helped me get a taxi when I was in a tight spot and waited with me till it came. So in recognition of her warmth and generosity, when she left to go to America, I bought her chocolates.
