'I want to thank you for your hospitality during our stay at King Blue. The staff at KB were all nice but you made all the difference,' the guest wrote.
Sometimes, strangers touch our hearts in the most beautiful ways and we thank them for making our lives better. It was also seen in a Reddit post, where a hotel valet received a letter from a guest for their hospitality. The letter was uploaded on the platform by u/LCKLCKLCK. They captioned, "I work valet at a hotel and just received this from a past guest!" The postcard had a picture of San Diego. As for the letter, it read, "I am not sure if you will remember me but this is [_] from San Diego. I hope this gets to you. I want to thank you for your hospitality during our stay at King Blue. The staff at KB were all nice, but you made all the difference. If you ever stop by SD, I will be happy to show you around."
People who go out of their way to make others happy and comfortable always hold a special place in their hearts. While most people in the hospitality industry are civil and cordial, people who manage to be kind and generous hold a special respect. Also, the letter read, "I also have a $2 bill that reminds me of you."
According to the Hospitality Net, true hospitality is "human kindness to strangers," especially when our patience is being tested. They also defined this kindness as "Kindness that starts with lasting eye contact and not a quick glance; kindness that causes a warm smile to emerge simultaneously on both faces." This post is proof that kindness stays with the customers for a long time and there is no replacement for it.
In another story about a beautiful note left by a stranger, Ceara Ledwith, an actor in New York City, was quietly crying on the subway, her mask providing some cover for her apparent grief. A stranger noticed the tears rolling down her face and dropped her a note, letting her know she wasn't alone and giving her the courage to deal with whatever she was going through. The sun would rise again, he told her. Ledwith needed it more than anything on that horrible day. She had just quit a class that gave her much hope amid her mental health struggles, and it had all become too overwhelming for her, reported Tanks' good news.

For someone aspiring to be an actor, the class served as her creative outlet, but eventually, she decided to leave the class. She started to doubt herself and her hopes of becoming an actor. She took the train, heading downtown to work, after saying goodbye to her classmates and that's when she broke down in tears. As she cried silently, she awkwardly made eye contact with a man sitting across her. He silently acknowledged and empathized with her situation. "I could just see the empathy and compassion in his eyes. It made me kind of embarrassed, but it was also kind of comforting to not feel alone," said Ledwith.

As the journey wore on, she switched her attention to her phone. Then, she saw someone keep a piece of paper in front of her face. She rejected the paper, assuming they were distributing notes to travelers. "No, thank you," she said. The stranger appeared to shake it once more. She looked puzzled and looked up to see the same man holding it. She took it and he got off the train.
