You may be having a bad time and it can feel like there’s no help at all. The last place you would expect any kind of help was from a stranger. It may just be a passer-by, a fellow commuter or a neighbour you haven’t really spoken to before.
But a simple act of kindness can change somebody’s world. In times of a global pandemic you would expect people to avoid complete strangers altogether but some people, even in these testing times stepped up and helped out humankind.
It’s always nice when you can rely on the kindness of strangers. If you can be anything in this world… Be kind!

So I thought it was a good idea to fly by myself with a 2 yr old and a 5 year old 😐 we were standing in line in security, on the verge of tears because Wyatt was screaming and James was exhausted. Out of the blue, one mom stops the line for security and says “here, jump in front of me! I know how it is!” Wyatt fell asleep and I was trying to carry everyone’s carry-on when another mom jumps out of her place in line and says “hand me everything, I’ve got it”. When I said thank you to both of them they said “don’t you worry, we’re going to make sure you get on that flight.”

While working out at Planet Fitness in Pascagoula a special needs man constantly approached this man about 10 different times in a 45 minute time span with handshakes, hugs, questions, and interactions. Towards the end of the workout the special needs man approached me and pointed to the man in the orange shirt and said “that’s my friend” with a huge smile on his face.
