Strangers Being Kind to Strangers

An elderly friend has a very long, steep driveway. She was expecting a package and got the notification on her phone that the delivery arrived. The transport person threw the box in the driveway almost at street level. She walked down the “hill” with her cane and wrestled with the box, her balance, and her will to lift or push it up the driveway.

She told me how a young man driving down the street saw her struggling. He pulled over, got out of his car, and lifted the box and carried it up the driveway.

WOW! That shouldn’t be such a big deal, but it is.

In today’s world where we hear about violence on a daily basis, moments of unsolicited, unconditional kindness renew my faith, hope, and belief that we are in this together and have more in common than not.

I try to be constantly aware and ready to help neighbors, friends, and strangers in some way, big or small.

I bet you do it too!

The little things are really the big things and the ones that will be remembered.
