A Book Brings a Smile

Yesterday I went for my son's karate class. I waited for him  two hours. As I sat there and read books I saw a lady who works there. She is a Filipino.  Most who work here in Kuwait are away from their families and all alone. She was just siting on a chair minding the kids gym, going through the snaps in her mobile. Something told me to ask if she loved to read. I dismissed the idea a few times then went ahead and asked her. She said she used to read but now she doesn't have the time because she works, goes home,eats and sleeps. I told her I would give her a book.  She asked if she could take it. She looked very happy. I said yes and told her she could read it during her spare time rather than just sitting there. She started reading the book, which was Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Kindness Served Up As a Cold Drink On a Hot Summer Afternoon

It's been some time since I logged on here since I live in Kuwait, which is an extremely hot place right now. I was in my apartment overlooking the highway. I saw a man trying to change his flat tire in the hot sun at 1pm in the afternoon.

I could see that he was having a very hard time. I went down to a small store in my building. I bought water and chocolate milk. I asked the store clerk if he would go and give that man the drinks. From my flat I saw the man taking the cold water and drinking it immediately. I felt really good to do this act of kindness!
