The Kindness of Strangers....

It was a nasty day today. It was so cold, in the 40's and rainy with some snow. Mom and I went to Nana's like we do every Monday. After we had taken her to the foot doctor for her check-up and to get her nails cut, we went by CVS to pick up her medicine. 

As we were leaving, there was a line of traffic, so we couldn't immediately pull out. I watched as a Baptist Church van stopped in the middle of the street and 2 little girls and a woman with a large umbrella got out. 

The two little girls crossed the lane of traffic and approached a middle-aged man who was slowly making his way (in the rain) towards the sidewalk with the aid of a walker. 

They were apparently asking the man if they could help him out in any way and as he started talking to them, the woman with the umbrella walked over and held it over him. It was a sight to see. 

It brought a tear to my eye... You really never see the kindness of strangers much anymore. I was amazed and proud of those two little girls especially. :) Maybe the world is not such a bad place after all....

[Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.]-Luke 6:31
