A little bit of sunshine on a rainy day

I work with a delightful lady called Diana. Yesterday, a young couple looking for a rental property with two small children came into our friendly real estate office sopping wet from the rain. My husband and I own and run our little office.
It was raining heavily and this young couple had an 18 month old little boy and a baby girl in a pram. My husband took them in our car to see a little house we thought they may be able to rent. Diana offerred to mind the baby in our office.
The little girl's mother was embarrassed as she explained why her baby was naked except for a nappy - wrapped in a bunny rug, as all her clothes were wet. After the couple left, Diana said "I am going to pop out and get the baby some clothes". Sure enough she did just that and 20 minutes later was back. We dressed the sweet little thing and her delighted mother couldn't believe what Diana had done. She wanted to know would Diana like the clothes back? Of course Diana said no. It had been her pleasure.
The next day this young mother came in and told us that no Real Estate office had ever treated her or her family with such care. I would like to think that every Real Estate office would have done the same thing.
