Next Generation of Kindness

I was with my kids at the grocery store. They are 3 and 5.
We were doing our grocery shopping, when we saw a 75-80 year old lady in one of those motorized scooters, doing her shopping. We saw that she was unable to reach something, so I reached it for her and she said, "Thank you."
The old lady also mentioned there were other things she was unable to get because she was confined to her scooter. So my 5 year old son spontaneously tells her, "Oh, we can help you get the rest of your groceries."
And we did. We went through the whole store with her, until she had all that she needed. When we finished, the woman blessed us and told me that it was nice to see that little ones still have manners.
As we finished our own grocery shopping, I felt so very proud to know my children will not be selfish people.
and I'm sure that your kids will continue to help others. Bless all of you!
