The greatest gift

The greatest gift you can your time.
Time to listen to someone hurting.
Time to an animal shelter to be a dog walker.
Time to go to a rest home and talk with those who have no visitors.
Time in your church children's dept. to allow parents to enjoy the services.
Time to take a shut in to the Doctor. Time to pick up trash along the highway.
Time to knit or sew for charity.
Time to help at a soup kitchen.

While riding the trolley recently the driver stopped to pick up some people of whom one, was an older man in a wheelchair. They helped him get up in the trolley and the driver hollered "someone give this man a seat"! Immediately a young woman who was in the very front seat stood up. The man hesitated and really didn't want to take it (am sure he had been raised to give up his seat for a lady) but out of sheer necessity sat down and quietly said "thank-you".
Kindness needs to be recieved as well as given.

Car wash

The other day my hubby and I got my car washed and when you are finished and drive out there is a man waiting to give it a towel dry....This guy had tattoos all over his arms and it would be easy to judge him but he worked real hard and did a good job. Hubby only had a $5.00 bill on him and asked the man to give him back 3 ones which would give him a $2.00 tip...the man said he would have to go inside to get the change, came out and handed my hubby the ones and we headed home. About half way home my hubby looks at the ones still in his hand and realizes the guy gave him all five ones and didn't keep the two for a tip..... Hubby said a bad word, turned around and went back, parked the car and walked around the car the guy was currently wiping down and handed him the two dollars.....I wished I would have had a camera! The guy was absolutely gleeful. Now, I don't think it was over the two dollars because he said over and over "Thank you for your honesty"....he waved at me and gave this big thumbs up and was just beaming.
It took very little effort and seemed to bring him such joy just doing what is right.
