This story proves good people are out there. And, that makes my heart so happy.
Here's what happened when firefighters in Petaluma, California responded to an emergency call:
"Engine 81 and Medic 91 were dispatched for a possible medical emergency at a residence. Upon arrival they were greeted by an elderly lady that accidentally activated her lifeline. The lady lived by herself and advised the crew she was waiting for her son to come and make her dinner. These firefighters had a few minutes to spare, so the crew took it upon themselves to prepare and cook dinner for this lady."
Oh how I wish everyone would show more humanity. A little bit of kindness and compassion goes such a long way.
That woman will never forget the firefighters who made her dinner. And perhaps one day, remembering the kindness that was shown to her, she will pass a bit of kindness along to someone else.
Imagine how wonderful the world would be if ripples of love and kindness continuously passed from one person to another.
The Heart: A Symbol Of Kindness
Many of our products contain hearts, the eternal symbol of love and kindness. These fuzzy heart socks are one of my favorites. They never fail to put a smile on my face and remind me that the heart is the source of all good things.
Your Turn . . .
What's your reaction to the firefighters' simple act of kindness?
