Kindness if a wonderful thing.
Yesterday, I saw a woman purchase three new pairs of shoes for a grandmother who was school shopping for her granddaughters. I was fortunate to be a bystander for this magnanimous gesture.
The grandmother was struggling to find something affordable for the two girls, who were probably ages 10 to 13. After a few minutes of looking around, the grandmother suggested to the girls that maybe they try again next week.
The next thing I knew, this bystander stepped in and was helping the young girls find Sperrys (not cheap), and the bystander even bought a pair of shoes for the grandmother.
When the grandmother asked the bystander for her name, the bystander answered only with her first name.
So, with this incredible gesture, this bystander managed to make day of these young girls, and their grandmother. Plus, the bystander managed to unknowingly make my day, as well.
And, I am sure the bystander was pleased she was in a position to help.
That, my friends, is making the world a better place, one small gesture at a time.
