Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Morning Newspaper Delivery


--by Ode2Joy, posted Oct 16, 2019
On the bottom floor of my building lives an elderly active lady.

She makes prayer quilts for others, which have brought safety, comfort, and healing to others. She also made one for me because of my back problems. She saves the tabs of aluminum  cans to give to an organization that can earn money from them.

When she walks, she looks like she is in pain. She has severe upper back scoliosis, which makes one shoulder much lower than the other. It hurts me to watch her walk.

In the past, our elevator has been known to stop between floors, so she walks up a flight of stairs. I live by the front door of our building at the entrance. In the morning, I take her newspaper down to her and hang it on her door knob for her.

I don't always do it if I sleep late or have to go somewhere, but it is a little thing I do to help out.
