Being Kind to One Another

So, I asked what I can buy for them. The young woman spoke in a strong accent I didn't recognize, "Sandwich, please."
I asked if she wanted fruit and what kind of sandwich. Through hand gestures, she asked if she could come with me.
So, she accompanied me inside the store. I bought her tomatoes and a chicken breast sandwich.
She started speaking to me in Spanish and I learned that the two were Yugoslavian, and she knew some Spanish/Portuguese/Italian. Her Spanish was better than her English, and my Spanish was better than my Yugoslavian.
I finished my shopping and delivered the tomatoes and sandwich to the couple who had been collecting other grocery items that I would guess were donated.
They thanked me and said, "God bless you."
I don't always do this, but this reminds me that I should more often.
