Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Sweet Words At Walmart

--by kelley, posted Dec 20, 2007
One summer, when I went to stay with my sister for a while, we took a trip to Walmart.

I have always felt like my sister was prettier than me but when we walked into the store that day, an older lady was giving out grocery baskets, and she looked at my sister and I and said "You two are so beautiful.  Are you sisters?"

And she saw that I had freakles and told me this story about when she was my age and she had freakles and she hated them but she said that now she wants them, and she was like "your so beautiful" -- specifically to me!

I will remember that day forever!  It made me so happy!

But it is a saying that always the Grass looks greener on the other side of the fence. You are special

Well, there are things which we might don't like in ourselves but we like it in us when we are old or when we lose them. So keep them and be proud of them. The old lady said things which you will never forget in your life. To tell you something about you thinking that your sister is more beautiful than you. You are very wrong about this one. She might be prettier than you from out side but you might have a prettier heart than she has. We can't all just say that we all are same and we all want to be same. Just be proud of who you are. Think about it again...!!!
