Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Ripples At The Bakery

--by RoseMarie, posted Nov 27, 2017

They came into the bakery with their father. A little brother and sister; both were very respectful and receptive to the man who held the door open for them. Their upbeat "thank you's" really made an impression on me.

When I received my change, I gave each of them  £1 and explained that I was so impressed with their good manners. Their dad was not buying pastries, only bread. He allowed them to take the money.

I left the bakery and as I was coming out of another shop I bumped into them again, each carefully carrying their little treat in a little bakery bag so that it did not get damaged. They waved to me and smiled; we were now friends. As I smiled back and walked to my car I thought of their eagerness to relay this event to mum. A simple act of kindness starting with the man who held the bakery door open. Who knows where the ripples will lead.

We are here to love and serve each other and allow this positive effect to ripple through us into the lives of others. Let the kindness spread!
