10 THE ACT OF KINDNESS AND A PROMISE

Never underestimate the simple act of kindness.

Last Thursday I picked up 4 Vim bathroom cleaner on sale for $2.99. I had mentioned the sale to one of my colleagues who ask me to pick one up for her. So I did. I took it home as I bought it when I left the office. When I arrived home I left one right by the door so I wouldn't forget. Monday as I prepared for work I did not remember about the bathroom cleaner. As I rushed upstairs to put on my shoes, there it was sitting right next to it. I immediately put it in a bag and took it with me.


It sat next to me on the train along with my hand bag. I arrived at my stop and exited the train. I heard someone say, "Miss" as I rested my handbag across my body. I turned just in time to see a young African-Canadian women stretch her and out the closing door and rest something on the subway platform. I looked and to my surprise and delight it was the Vim bathroom cleaner. I had completely forgotten it on the seat in the train and the quick thinking young woman was gracious enough to not only to call my attention but to be forward thinking enough to rest it quickly on the subway platform.

I was so grateful for her inginuity, it kept a smile on my face the whole day. With her help I was able to keep my promise! Such a simple act of kindness had a wonderful impact on me.
