Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Reflecting Love in Our Words

--by autumnsky38, posted Jan 12, 2018
The other day I was going to a doctor's appointment, and I happened to open the door for an older woman as we went inside. She was so lovely; dressed to the nines, nice hair do, makeup and everything and I was taken with her.

As we rode up in the elevator together, I told her what I'd been thinking and she beamed such a bright smile it made my heart dance. She said "Thank you young lady! You've made my day!" And I was like, "No ma'am, you made mine."

Watching her walking away, I noticed she had a spring in her step, and I felt so great knowing that I was part of her feeling that way. Such a nice gift for both of us.
