Little Miracles Everywhere 2

Spotted today on the "L" train:  A man sat alone on a two seat section of the train.  A woman got on the train, started to sit down next to him, but stopped herself as she saw a tiny puddle of a liquid object on the seat.  The man saw this, took out a kleenix, wiped the seat down, and motioned to her it was clean.  The woman said, "Thank you" and sat down. 

No dialogue after that.  Nothing bad happened.  Nothing outstandingly good happened.  Nothing that would ever make the "news." Just the under-the-radar basic human acts of kindness that take place all around me every day in New York City.

There are little miracles everywhere.  Is anyone else seeing them?
