Random acts of kindness
Today I decided to head out to McDonalds for a cup of re qiao ke li (hot chocolate) and some serious writing time. As I was walking to the bus stop, I saw the bus pull up while I was still far across the street. I assumed that I would miss it and have to wait for the next bus, but I nevertheless hurried across the street.
And as I assumed, all of the people waiting for the bus had boarded before I was even halfway across the street. But…
the bus driver saw me hurrying and decided to wait for me! It made me smile! 🙂 The bus driver’s small act of kindness made my day! I was reminded of how small actions can really affect people. A smile, an opened door, waiting for them, etc. It doesn’t take much to encourage people and make their day! What acts of kindness can I show to the Chinese? Or just anyone around me?
