Stories of Kindness from Around the World

You Never Know Who is Watching

--by lewski711, posted Oct 3, 2018
I was at the grocery store today and there were two lines; one short and one a bit longer. Of course, I chose the shorter line. I started to unload my items when a guy came up behind me with only one item to purchase. I told him to go ahead of me.

Here's the cool part. In that longer line right next to mine, there was a guy with a decent amount of groceries, and behind him was a guy with just one item. Next thing I know, he tells the guy to go ahead of him.

Maybe that gentleman saw what I did and he decided to follow suit. Or, maybe he did it all on his own. It doesn't really matter. It does give me pause to think, though.

Our acts of kindness don't always just affect the ones that we are being kind to...they may inspire others to be kind as well. We may not think of that, so a reminder is sometimes in store for us to kick start our kindness. That's why I think this page is so important. All of your posts inspire me and others, even when you don't know it.

Just reading the comments of other kindspring toward what i considered a little, insignificant act of kindness in the past, Made me realize, how important it is to be able to share the Joy here. It takes time for people to get used to someone being Kind to them and we need support to continue to give even while others are yes distrusting.
