A lesson in kindness and understanding

Today I went to the store to buy coffee.

The woman in front of me was getting impatient with the man making the coffee.
He asked her more than once about her order,she gave him attitude and raised her voice. She began to talking down to him.
The man apologized and asked for forgiveness as he got in some news from home. His mind was preoccupied.
The woman left (visibly feeling bad for raising her voice.)

I asked the gentleman if he needed a minute, he looked at me (he held it together) and told me his wife has cancer.
They just found out this morning.
This man was in pain and his eyes weld up. I told him I was sorry to hear this news and maybe he should go home to be with his wife.

I know we are all in a rush and have busy lives.
Just keep in mind, some people are going through something some of us couldn’t comprehend.
Someone this man loves maybe about to fight a battle for her life. I am sure if this woman knew that she would have be just a little more kind.

People need to stop acting as if the world is out to get them!
We all can have bad days, just don’t take your bad day out on someone who isn’t deserving of it.
It cost nothing to be kind and considerate of those around you.
Just food for thought.

Love + Unity
