Holding The Elevator

I was more than glad to do this, but at the same time panic rose up inside me. The "door open", and "door close" symbols on many elevators often lack the words open and close. My brain has problems deciphering symbols and I often press the wrong button.
Thankfully besides the symbol, it also said open, so I was able to press the correct button and then told her to take her time getting on, making sure she was steady before I released the door open button. I pressed her floor number and since she got off on the floor below me I did the whole thing in reverse. She immediately saw someone who could help her open the office door up ahead.
She thanked me and I wished her a blessed day. This whole interaction probably took me 5 minutes but I felt so warm inside afterwards.
