Little things I remember...
I was checking the mail at the mail box and saw a neighbor of mine - a friendly chinese uncle. A couple of years back, his wife bought us a tub of Meadow Gold's Cookies and Cream ice cream for no apparent reason. And the ice cream turned out to be heavenly. For some reason, that little act of giving struck me. Being the rational person that I am, I just couldn't see why she'd buy us ice cream. But I'm touched nonetheless.
That little act of kindness has taught me that kindness knows no boundaries and a simple seemingly insignificant act can leave a huge and lasting impression. I want to be someone like that. All it takes is a tub of icecream.
Lest I forget.
