This past Friday as I was getting ready for
convention, I had to make a stop and
change roles from adult leader to Girl
Scout leader. I was meeting with my coleader
to go over stuff for our Monday
meeting. As I was leaving Caribou; rushed
because I had other things to finish up, a
woman approached me. At first, I couldn’t
understand her, then she took a
breath and calmed down. I learned she
was driving in from Chicago with her little
girl, having just left an abusive relationship
and was trying to get to Bloomington,
but made a wrong turn and was now
almost out of gas. Did I have any money
Money to spare? I don’t work, so any funny
money I get I covet and horde away
(yet I still don’t seem to spend it on me!).
I had money on me for convention, but I
couldn’t whip that out in front of her. I
got nervous, my co leader had bolted to
her car. It was just me…what could I do?
So, I asked her to hold on a minute, and
walked to my car. At least I felt a bit safer
there as I was looking around, it was
10am in the Walgreens parking lot, cars
and people everywhere. She followed, but
never made a move towards my car. I dug
a ten-dollar bill out of my small horde
and walked it back to her. She almost
started crying and gave me a hug…I
thought she wasn’t going to let go!
I started thinking about the…What if’s.
What if that had been me? Would I
have the courage to go up to a complete
stranger and ask for help? I can
barely talk to people I know in public
situations. This small act of kindness
made a difference to
her. I wished her
well and she went
on her way. Our
paths will probably
not pass again.
While my act of
kindness did cost me
doesn’t always have to. Remember to
be kind, the world seems to be lacking
this now days. Share a smile, a kind
word; It needs to start somewhere, and
I’m glad to be part of the kindness
I hope you have a “kind” day and always
