I heard on the radio today a story that touched me. It showed how there are still so many people in this world that know how to show kindness!
A lady was at the the Los Angeles airport. One of the largest and busiest airports in the US. She was trying to calm her little one before they got on the plane. Unfortunately her calming techniques weren’t helping and soon this little one was crying loudly, The toddler had thrown themselves on the floor and was refusing to get on the plane. The Mom put her head in her hands and started to cry herself.
No one knew this lady’s situation. Didn’t know where she was going or what was going on in her life presently, besides the fact that she had a screaming toddler on the floor. Without any words passing between any of them, 5 different Moms walked over to this worn out Mom and tended to her and to the child. One got a cup of water for the Mom to drink, one started singing to the child, each one was finding a way to help.
Is that not a beautiful example of human kindness? No judging was going on. They weren’t yelling at her to control her child, they saw a need and they did what they could to help!
Yes, kindness still exists, it really does! What can you do to show it today?
Sometimes there is no need to ask questions, there is only a need for action!
