An Act of Kindness

B10 and CW started doing it last year at Christmas time – and then they both started doing it again this year.

I’ve never prompted them, and to be honest – when I’m in a hurry it drives me crazy.

But I’ve also been on the other side, and it’s quite sweet.

When we are out shopping, CW and B10 make an effort to take empty carts out of the parking lot and put them inside the store.  Or if people leave their carts at the end of the register (like at Target), where they are strewn about, B10 and CW will gather them all up and push them back to the corral at the front.  I’ve watched B10 spend 10 minutes collecting shopping carts in a Dollar Tree parking lot, because there are none inside and the employees are busy at registers.

It’s not much, but it means something to me that they identify a problem and a hassle for other customers, and they take joy in making it better.

    I think that is great. Way to go boys!! That is something I am SURE the employees are thankful this time of year and the boys can easily do it and bring a smile to someones face. Very cool. Love it! That will have to make Brother’s list for ARKs…we just started talking about that 🙂 Boo
