Simple Act of Kindness

I am 84 years old and limited physically, but there are still many things I can do to brighten the day for someone else. Just a smile and “Hello” as I see people in a parking lot, a store, the post office, etc., can make someone feel noticed and important.

The other day I smiled at a young man that I did not know who was going into a restaurant, and he then smiled and waved to me. I hope it made his day brighter as it did mine. Acts of kindness bring joy into the lives of both the receiver and the giver.
