Stories of Kindness from Around the World

"Just A Smile, Sister!"

--by cabbage, posted Aug 2, 2012

I was walking along a sidewalk in the city. A bit of a distance away I could see a woman walking along with a big signboard around her neck. I was naturally curious about what it said, so I deliberately slowed my pace so I could see.

It read "Trust in Kindness," and I smiled at the lady as I walked on towards my building.

She looked at me and said, "That's all I'm looking for ... just a smile, sister!" 
That totally made my day!
