When you think about it, it is the kindness that we offer to those around us that makes this world a much beautiful place. Whether it is the smile we offer to a neighbor or someone who’s feeling down, or we go to greater lengths to help someone in need, being kind is the most rewarding trait a person can possess.
A man named Chris was taking a ride with his wife Tara and their two children when they spotted an elderly man mowing the lawn. Doing such an activity at advanced age seemed like a tiring task to Chris who stopped his car and landed a helping hand. He got outside and offered to mow the lawn. The elderly man was surprised but gladly accepted the help.
At that moment, Tara and her kids, who are probably still too young to understand how much their dad’s action meant to the elderly man, felt proud of Chris.
“There are many reasons I adore my husband, but one is his thoughtfulness. Chris instructed me to go home first, and he would come to pick me up today when I returned home from picking up our kids. Although I did not understand what was happening, I knew Chris had a strategy. He had stopped at a flower shop and purchased some flowers for me. It turned out. I was pleasantly surprised and delighted by the lovely gesture,” Tara said.
Tara hopes her boys will become good people just like their dad who teaches them the right values through examples.
Most times, being kind doesn’t require much effort and it can still mean the world to those who receive it. And as the proverb goes, “When given the choice between being right or being kind always choose kindness.”
