Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Taking the risk to be kind


--by caroldessen, posted Feb 15, 2016
Inspired by some ideas I read here in the website today, I decided to pay the bill for the woman behind me in the supermarket line. She was around 60 years old and had a frown. 

I introduced myself to her and told her I wanted to give her a gift and asked if I could pay her bill. She couldn´t believe this was happening and waited until I said goodbye (I think she was expecting I would ask her for something) - then she came to me, gave me a hug and thanked me with a smile from ear to ear. Felt so good!
