Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Simply Opening The Door

--by Flowers, posted Jul 10, 2007
Just a little thing.

The other day when I was in the local bakery buying my 2 year old a treat, there was an older gentleman with a cane in front of us.  He bought a couple of bags worth and then had to manage with his cane so when he went to the door I rushed over to open the door for him. When I opened the door for him the biggest smile came on his face as I believe he had  totally not expected me to open the door for him and he gave me a big thank you.

Gosh it felt good to do such a little thing but to get such a wonderful response back.

I guess it is even the smallest of things that can make a difference in someone's day!

This is a gift from GOD that he made you make someone smile and specially when you make an old man/woman happy or bring a big smile on her/his face. May GOD keep you always smiling and helping others.
