Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Moment of Truth... and Ice Cream


--by strugglingmom, posted Sep 1, 2013
I recently had a touching moment with my son.  These past few months have been a huge struggle for me due to medical issues that put me behind on by bills.

Finally, I had $10 in my purse for once, and I decided to give it to my 11 year-old son. He is always asking me for a simple dollar to buy something from the ice cream man. :)  The ice cream man came and I watched through the window as my son and his friends bought ice cream and candy.

One boy stood in the back and happened to have no money. This boy has been in school with my son since kindergarten, and his mother had passed away when he was only in the first grade, at 6 years old.

Out of all the children, my son was the only one who handed him money to buy ice cream. Upon seeing this, my eyes filled with tears. In that moment, I was the proudest mother ever!
