When you do an act of kindness you never know how much it affects the receipient. Sometimes a small act of kindness can make a big difference.
I know that many folks think that unless their act of kindness is big or expensive, it really doesn't count. But the little things do make a difference.
Consider this checkout clerk's act of kindness. The receipient was going through a rough time with her youngest child in the hospital. And it was the holiday season. She and her older son went grocery shopping. Weary from worry, she didn't expect to be treated special. Take a look, it's a short clip:
So, this clerk, who was probably dealing with all kinds of frazzeled shoppers during the holiday season, was attentive to her shopper and her shopper's child. And she took the time to treat them as special. It made all the difference.
So who might you treat as special today, or tomorrow, or the next day? Let's all practice paying it forward.
