One Father’s Act of Anonymous Kindness

toyHere’s another great post I first read on The Kindness Blog. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did…

One Father’s Act of Anonymous Kindness

My dad took my brother, sister and I out for lunch at a local diner/ice cream shop.

About three tables away was a very bedraggled mother with twin infants in carriers and two other small children, and it looked like today was the day for all of them to act up.

After I was done eating, I went to look at the pinball machine ( a lifelong obsession) and on his way over to collect me, my dad stopped at the counter, paid our bill, and the lady’s as well.

He never mentioned it later and did it in a way that no one other than the cashier would have even known, but I managed to catch it.

I know it’s a very simple act, and it probably wasn’t very expensive, but the fact that he did it without much thought, and not even to use as a kindness lesson to us kids, always stuck with me.
