Chris, his wife Tara, and their two children were riding in their car when they noticed an elderly man mowing the yard. Doing such an action at such an elderly age appeared exhausting to Chris, who pulled over and lent a helping hand. He went outside and offered to cut the grass. The old man was taken aback but gratefully accepted the assistance.
Tara and her children, who are probably still too young to grasp how much their father’s action meant to the elderly guy, were proud of Chris at the time.
“One of the many reasons I adore my husband is his thoughtfulness.” Chris told me to go home first, and he’d come to pick me up when I got home from picking up our kids today. Even though I didn’t comprehend what was going on, I knew Chris had a plan. He had stopped at a flower shop and bought me some flowers.
It worked out. “I was surprised and delighted by the thoughtful gesture,” Tara stated. Tara hopes her boys will grow up to be nice people like their father, who teaches them the appropriate values by example. Being kind usually doesn’t take much effort, yet it can mean the world to people who receive it. And, as the proverb goes, “when given the choice between being right or being kind, always choose kindness.”
