Over The Top (#691)

Dropping a package at a UPS store the other day, I experienced something unusual and very exciting.   The young man working there came from behind his counter and walked up to help me with my package.

As I was getting back into my car, I saw a man with a cane walking toward the UPS store with a package.  The same young man came out of the store, took the man’s package and held the door for him.

How very kind.  I am so happy to have been part of such over-the-top service.

Love is a Rhododendron

We do not exist singularly 

In this vast and vibrant world

We rise as we

Lift each other

    Every where I go people are nice to me. We walked in a restaurant tonight. It was packed. A lady told me to sit down, she would stand. I said are you sure, she insisted I take her seat. I did get into an argument the other day. I lost my cane. I got out of the car and saw some carts. It had a coke can stuck on it so I moved it to the ground and fought the carts to pull them apart. I lean on it because my balance is not great. This old guy started screaming at me to pick up the can and throw it in the trash. I told him I have balance issues and if he was so worried about the can he could pick it up and put it in the trash. He didn’t. He just wanted to yell at me.

    What a beautiful story. There are still some very nice people in this world. We just don’t always encounter them in our daily lives. You were one of the lucky ones.

    After leaving the workforce, I stopped dying my hair and let it go white. Since that time I’ve been the recipient of the most wonderful random acts of kindness from various people. I must remind them of their grandmother! Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone were that kind to people of all ages?
