World Kindness Day

Yesterday, I purchased an item for our home that was extremely heavy.  I managed to get it into the shopping cart by tilting it over the edge and letting gravity do the rest.  I wondered how I would get it into the back of my Ford Escape. 

I thought about asking for help, but didn't.  I'm not good at asking for help.

When I got out to the car, and tried to pick it up, I couldn't.  It was just too heavy. 

I was wishing that I had someone to help me, when a stranger asked if I needed help.  Between the two of us, we were able to hoist it up and into the back of the vehicle. 

I thanked the nice man, and as I continue to feel grateful for his help, I'm looking for ways to pay it forward.

Today is World Kindness Day.  What will you do?
