Stumble Upon Kindness

Stumble Upon Kindness

It was a Thursday evening. My mom and I decided to stop by a place to get some food. Walking back to the car, I saw this girl on the sidewalk who looked ¬†not very much older than me. She was carrying a baby that was probably her sister, asking for money. I didn’t know her story; I didn’t know where she lived or why she needed money but I gave her my bag of food and a few extra changes because she looked like she needed it more than I do. She said, “Thank you. God bless you” and it wasn’t the words that made me feel something. It was the sincere appreciation in her voice that lifted my spirit¬†and enlarged the brightness of my day. They say “an act of kindness can go a long way” and at that moment, I felt like mine did.
