The Smiling Magnolia

Exchanges with someone you see every single day, translated…

There are three exits of my building, and the super’s office is in the building I live in, because of going in and out a lot, we’d become closer to the office.  Especially for my father, after he finished his meals, he’d always gone downstairs to chat with the workers, and, everything that’s so minutely detailed about my household, the super would know well.

The super is elderly, but, he’s very capable, sorted through the mails quickly, warning the motorcycles parking outside when they’re not supposed to be parking where they parked, fixing up the things that needed fixing……………what was scariest, was that he’d, installed surveillance cameras in our areas, so I’d not acted up, I’d, become more ladylike as I walked.

He’d often surprised me, knew that I loved reading, he’d placed some of the past magazines into my mail; knew how I loved the plants in the gardens, and had put the magnolias he’d planted at his house and every other day, he’d, secretly, placed them on the shoe rack outside my home.  On this day, he’d taken a plate of magnolias upstairs to me, and I was just heading out.  The super told me that the flower season is about to end, that there are still flowers these couple of days, he’d delivered them to me.

Then, thank you for the offerings then!  The smiles those flowers brought to the Goddess of Mercy made her smiled, the super squinted and smiled, my parents waved their hands and smiled, I too, started, smiling as well.

So, this, is the care and concern that a super of a building showed to the residents, and, having someone who actually CARE about his work, someone who’s passionate about what he does working for your neighborhood IS an amazing thing.
