My wife, baby Enyu and I were just on the way to cross a zebra crossing when we saw a bus heading towards the zebra crossing. The driver saw us and immediately halted to a stop. He gave us a big smile and gestured for us to go ahead to cross first.
We proceeded to cross the zebra crossing and waved at him whilst giving a nod of appreciation at the same time. What was surprising was how baby Enyu also waved back at him. We could see that he had a wide grin and it was indeed a happier day for all of us!
Kindness always surprises!
There is always an opportunity for kindness, and it is up to us to step up towards it.
My Wife and I were just around Ghim Moh Market area for breakfast and we were both enjoying our meals when I felt a little tap to the shoulder.
On turning around , I noticed that it was an elderly man carrying a bag of tissues who has tapped me on the shoulder. He was accompanied by an equally elderly woman with a walking stick for the visually handicapped.
Immediately, I reached towards my pocket to grab a money note to pass to them and asked how they are doing. They spoke briefly and thanked me before moving on. Hopefully, with time and the effort as a community, we can let our elderly generation integrate seamlessly with the changing facets of our nation!
Whenever an opportunity for kindness knocks on the door, let us be the one to open it give the touch of love to others!
