Kindness

.



     Today Karla took me to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned.  When we got there, the parking lot was full except for two spots.  A man with a cane and his two kids had just pulled into the handicapped spot.  Karla was going to let me out and then park.  The man saw this and insisted that he would move and let us have that space.  He was legally valid to occupy the parking space and we could have managed but his kindness was an example to both his kids and to us.
     His example had obviously been previously taught to his kids because his young son opened the door for an older woman without her asking.  Kindness is both taught and watched so let it be part of the joy in your day.

  2. Oh, that all of our children and grandchildren, through our example, were as sensitive to others as that family was!
