Nice story from yesterday, written originally in a text to my family:
My kids could not leave me alone this morning or behave while I tried to get in 2 miles on the treadmill before T’s basketball practice. (They were allowed to run around on the track and had a ball, books, etc to play with)
After 20 minutes (of random stops) they proceeded to try to stop me twice in the last two minutes of my run. I told them to go sit down. Twice.
They did and a super nice older lady picked up a Bernstein (Berenstain) bear book and started reading to them.
When I told her thank you after my last two minutes on the treadmill, she was so gracious. ❤️
She said “I was a young mother once too. It looked like you could use a little help.”
I told her thank you and that was the nicest thing anyone had done for me all week!
Almost made me cry. It was so non-judgemental and genuine.
Good and kindness exist. When you come across it today, please respond with gratitude and pay it forward!
