I Witnessed An Act Of Kindness!

I witnessed an act of kindness at Starbucks today. I met a client to explain my Origami Owl Hostess Rewards and had a cup of tea. We had a good visit and talked for a few minutes.  As we were leaving, I noticed an older woman stop to ask a younger lady if she was done with her food.  She (older woman) offered to take her (younger lady) empty container to the trash can. The younger lady was on crutches. The young lady was visibly shocked that someone would be so kind.  I thought to myself..that’s what it is all about. It made me smile.
