Small acts of kindness

blue tartan When I was flying from Romania to the UK, I started talking with a lady who was coming to London, to see her newborn grandchildren for the first time. She was alone and I offered my help. My tiny (very tiny) act of kindness inspired her to offer me a brooch she made herself. I was surprised by her modesty and I happily received her beautiful gift. And I know that every time I’ll wear this brooch, I’ll remember her kindness.

Pe avion, venind spre Anglia, am intalnit o doamna. Mergea in vizita la fiica ei, pentru a-si vedea pentru prima data micutii nepoti. Era singura si-avea putine emotii, asa ca am incercat sa-i fiu alaturi si s-o ajut cum pot. Adica sa vorbesc cu ea in mare parte, sa-i fac calatoria mai placuta. A fost atat de surprinsa si recunoscatoare pentru gestul meu (minuscul, de altfel!), incat mi-a oferit o brosa facuta de ea. Am ramas impresionata. A fost un gest unic si de-atunci port brosa cu placere. Imi aduce aminte de bunatatea si modestia ei.
