Inspirational Real-Life Story
Importance of Thoughtfulness and Kindness
My daughter travels abroad often and on one such journey, she got a chance to put the value of kindness to good use.
On her last trip going abroad, she was standing at a queue in front of the foreign exchange counter at the airport at eight in the morning. It was very hot and everyone was a tad irritated.
People were getting impatient as the middle-aged woman behind the counter was trying her best to hurry things up.
By the time it was my daughter’s turn, the woman was so overwhelmed that she gave a sigh of tiredness before smiling her practiced smile.
My daughter asked her if something was wrong. Why was she looking flustered so early in the morning?
The woman told her about her difficult life and that she had to travel for nearly an hour or more to reach the airport. She hadn’t had water for some time as she had finished her water bottle and could only go and fill it from the water cooler during her break.
My daughter noticed a food and bottled water kiosk nearby. She asked the woman to get water from there because the cooler was at the other end and there was a big queue waiting for her services.
The woman shook her head saying it was expensive and she didn’t want to waste money. My daughter excused herself and went and bought a cold water bottle and gave it to the hassled and thirsty woman asking her to drink some before attending to her duty.
The grateful woman promptly drank some water thirstily thanking my daughter profusely and blessing her with a big smile.
