Random Act of kindness: November 29 2017

 

He
was young.

He
needed gas.

He requested
$14 worth.

His card
was declined.

He suggested we try
$10 instead.

The transaction
was rejected.

He apologized for
wasting my time and left.

Silently he sat in his car
pondering what to do next.

My heart sank…

The next gentleman in line
paid for his snacks
and gave and extra $10.

“That’s for the guy
who was in line before me,”
he said.
“I remember what it felt like
to be young and broke.
Go catch him before he leaves!”

I ran as fast as I could.
I was happy to help
make him feel better.
I was elated to witness
such a wonderful act of kindness.

    1. Yes. I agree.
      It was a beautiful thing to witness.
      If humans just treat each other with respect and kindness on a daily basis the world would be such a nice place. In the mean time, all we can do is seek out the beauty in this world we call home.

      How have you been?

      1. You are absolutely right, it’s like paying it forward. Do something good and pass it on, if it became contagious then yes, the world wouldn’t be as sick. But yes, look for the beauty we do see and make the best of it.
        I’ve been good lovely, like you look…. I’ve been fine.🙂. How have you been doing? Good I hope.

  1. There is still a lot of good in the world. The good thing about being down and out, is that once you have gotten on your feet, you don’t forget what it was like when you were hurting. And that makes you willing to help others in the same situation as you once were.
