This is something that happened yesterday. Have you thought about the good deeds you do? : )
As I put my grocery shopping in my car yesterday afternoon and was about to drive away I saw an elderly lady who had just parked next to my car who was getting out. She struggled to get out of her car and had crutches. She was then struggling to open her car back door to get her bags out (re-using bags, environmentally friendly).
So I went up to her and asked if I could help with anything. With a big smile she appreciatively said “That is so kind of you but I should be able to manage.” I gave her company and walked with her to the entrance of the supermarket and brought a shopping cart over to her to take inside.
We chatted while we walked, she mentioned that she should get knee surgery done and we talked and laughed a bit. When we reached the entrance she enthusiastically said thank you and was beaming, smiling and really appreciative that someone had taken the time to think of her, approach her, smile and be friendly, and help her.
Just wanted to share as some of the subtlest things we do can mean so much to others : )
What are your thoughts on helping others? Have you any stories to share on this?
