Small Acts of Kindness

   A Legacy to His Children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren

Over the last several years I have witnessed my dad in action delivering small acts of kindness to those around him. –– For Sunday evening meals I, and other family members, have the pleasure of getting together with my dad. When he sees a family with young children in the restaurant, on our way out he’ll make sure to tell them they are a nice look’n family. –– When at a doctor’s appointment, he tells the nurses and doctors that they are nice people and they do good work. –– When greeting the staff where he lives he let’s them know they do a fine job caring for him. ––  Always kinds words and a Thank You to his family during our time together. 

His small acts of kindness are occasionally accompanied by light-hearted kid’n around. He always tells me, “I like kidding around and I like to be kidded back.”

On our last outing I asked my dad if he could go anywhere in the world, where would it be. He replied, ” I’m happy right where I’m at, I don’t need to go anywhere. I am happy.”

In essence, each act of kindness is an expression of his heart’s pleasure. My dad sees the good in all. He is happy.

Nature’s Sweet Grace.
