Ice Cream and a Lesson In Kindness


--by AndiCas, posted Jul 16, 2017
Last time I was in town with my son and his friend I decided to treat them to ice cream. I long ago discovered that buying a box of individual ice creams in the supermarket is cheaper than buying them individually, but they always seem to come in larger multiples than we need.

This time we bought a box of six, with just three of us to eat them. The boys of course didn't see this as being any problem at all and happily ate two each, but I thought that eating two myself would just be gluttonous and it would be a good opportunity to demonstrate some kindness. I gave the extra one to a young lad who was passing. I think setting a good example to my son and his friend was as important as the act of giving itself.
