“What the world needs is a new kind of army – an army of the kind.”
– Cleveland Armory
A few days ago, on a very hot morning, while walking my dog I saw three sanitation men halt their truck, and pour ice water all over each other from a plastic bucket, frolicking like ten–year-old–boys. When the bucket was empty, one of them placed it on a neighbor’s front porch. When I asked them, they shared with me that each hot day, the homeowner leaves a bucket of ice water for them, not for drinking, but for cooling down by drenching each other. How thoughtful. How charitable. How kind. A simple gesture, to cool down these sweating essential workers on a very hot day. Kindness . . . that’s what all the good books encourage. Bring a bit of heaven down to earth each day. At this time, when we are all carrying such significant extra burdens, we all deserve a few extra doses of kindness. Even one small act of kindness will surely make life a touch easier for someone just like you and me.
This quote was sent to me by Larry F., a truck driver and one of the best human beings I am blessed to know. Just one more act of kindness in his life of doing many such acts.
PS: The house in the picture above is my house. And that is my sign, too. Hope you enjoy it as my neighbors say they do, as well.
