There are rare moments when people actually display kindness.  Last month my daughter’s truck broke down in the extreme heat.  She did not know that the gas gauge did  not work. She, of course, called AAA who could not get anyone to help us.  Finally, after several phone calls, the receptionist in the office forced the owner to come and assist us. He came with five gallons or .0189 cubic meters.  Once we made it to a petrol station, we filled the tank.  Not a single person stopped to see if we needed help.  Today, the truck broke down again.  This time it overheated and it has a radiator leak.  Three different people displayed kindness today to stop and check if we needed help.  One was a woman with her dog.  We had to wait for it to cool down and then replace the water. My daughter contacted our neighbor who came immediately as we had been returning with groceries.  He took me home and then went back to assist her.  I think it is time for another vehicle.  It was so nice that these people offered assistance and even water. Just to let you know it was one hundred eight degrees or forty-two and twenty-two seconds of Celsius.  I have been at groceries trying to load large cases of water or Pellegrino when a person has passed by and assisted. Of course, taking it out of the car once I reached home was another matter.  What I usually do is open the containers and bring several bottles in at a time.  It works better. With the world today, witnessing kindness is uncommon.  How many times have you walked into a grocery, post, bank or store and a person has let a door slam into your face? Every time a person holds a door for me I always tell them they had a wonderful mother who taught them kindness. After all kindness is free. What do you do?
