It’s Thursday again which means it’s time to take a pause and appreciate lil things in life and feel grateful.
Share about a kind stranger you met recently.
Last weekend, I thought I’d cook some pasta for myself. When I entered the kitchen, my mum, sis and our househelp were already there. Mum gave something to sis to check. As sis turned around, she noticed I was entering the kitchen. She took out her hand towards me to show me a glass. But instantly took her hand back to herself saying that my eyes are weak, I won’t be able to check. (I recently started wearing specs.)
In a playful way, I told her, “Yes, I’ll be going blind soon. You should help me with all the work.” Before sis could react, our househelp said, “Nahi bitiya, aise mat bolo. (No daughter, don’t say like that.)” I told her that it was just a joke and we were just teasing each other.
The househelp started working at our place only recently. She touched my heart. Yes, I know I shouldn’t be taking my previliges for granted. I’m sure that she would have known that we were just having some sibling fun. But the warmth and concern with which she said it, she won my heart.
Did you meet a stranger who touched your heart? Would love to read your personal experiences.
