The good we do for others can have a deep impact both on those we help and the onlookers who witness our generosity. By doing good, we make this world a much better place. Always keep in mind that no matter how small our act of kindness is, it can go a long way!

“I had to share this so everyone could see it!

“I was in the Tifton, Ga Publix tonight, when I saw one of the most beautiful scenes unfold before my eyes. A young man, by the name of Roger, was helping an elderly gentleman in a motorized wheelchair; he had the man’s shopping list and was helping him find his desired items. I stood there with another woman who had witnessed all of this and couldn’t hide the immense gratitude I had for that young man, Roger, as I teared up. She said she was coming in when the elderly gentleman stopped the young man, that was hard at work and asked, ‘Are you busy?’ And Roger smiled politely and replied, ‘No sir, how can I help you?’ The elderly man then asked him for his help because he knew it would take him all night to find what he needed and manage to get the items in his cart if he tried to do it alone.

“Roger, without hesitating, told him he would be happy to help. There was no agitation in his tone for being interrupted. There was no rush to his walk to make the man feel like he was a burden. He made that man feel important. He was listening to the man talk and made sure to be attentive and answered with respect and manners. As Roger passed me in the aisle, he greeted me with a smile and asked me how my evening was going and proceeded to help the man. It is so rare to see such a young person have such respect for his elders. I had tears knowing that the elderly gentleman was probably happy to have someone help him AND to listen to him. You don’t get this kind of service at just any grocery store but Publix, specifically the Publix in Tifton, Ga. This young man’s act of kindness meant so much to me and I am sure it meant so much to the gentleman he helped.”
