It’s been awhile since I posted one of these, and it’s definitely about time. I love when I get to witness what seems like small moments in day. It’s these moments that make the world a better place, don’t you think?
- A young man walking through one of our city parks walks past a homeless man on a bench. Stops, takes a wrapped sandwich out of his backpack, turns back around, and gives it to the homeless man.
- A blind woman walking on the sidewalk, asking for directions. A young woman not only gives her the directions but walks her — arm-in-arm — to where she needs to go.
- A woman walking from the store to her car, struggling to carry the large box she has and some random stranger stopping and carrying the box for her to her car.
- A guy walking down the street smoking a cigarette gives it to a homeless man who just wants a smoke.
- A woman with the double-wide baby stroller trying to get in the doorway at a store and a guy walking by on the sidewalk stops to open the door for her and then goes in to open the second door to help her.
- A guy on the train paying for my train ticket with his 10-ride ticket, and then giving me the ticket to use or pay it forward.
- My friend surprising me with flowers personally hand-delivered to my door on my birthday morning. It was a great way to start my birthday.
These are the moments that matter. What moments have you witnessed lately?
