Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Child, Just Naturally, Puts Things Right


--by StarBrite, posted Aug 10, 2009

   I had my grandson for the day and I had to run to the store to pick up some things. I brought him along with me. He didn't complain but I knew he couldn't wait to get home to play.

   At the store he asked if he could go by himself  and pick out something to drink. I said yes since I would be able to see him from where I was. I watched him until it was my turn in line.  Then somewhere in the background I heard a loud noise, looked toward my grandson saw that he was ok and finished up my business. 

   As I went back over to my grandson I found him busy on the floor putting back together a battery display that was tipped over. The batteries  were everywhere. He told me: "I'll fix it Grandma so nobody will trip."

   How proud I was of him to take it upon himself to put everything back together after somebody else tipped it and kept going. He wasn't afraid that somebody from the store would holler at him thinking he did it. He just wanted to fix it.

   I still smile when I see him in my mind on the floor so determined to make things right so others wouldn't get hurt.
