“A picture is worth a thousand words.”

PictureWhat appears to be a photo capturing an act of kindness is, as many things in life are, so much more than that once you know the details of the story.

Angie, our new office manager, was having a very hectic day. She was trying to balance her new job, errands, phone calls, etc. About an hour after she was supposed to take a lunch, she told her coworker that she was going to quickly run to the bank, but would be back in time for her next phone call. As she rushed out the door, she saw one of the residents sitting on the sidewalk. Instead of speed walking past her, Angie stopped and noticed sadness in her eyes. This resident was waiting for her daughter, who had terminal cancer.

Angie sat with her, and could bring her more comfort than most other people can, as Angie is a cancer survivor herself. While she knew she could not fix this woman’s situation, simply being present could at least bring comfort! A coworker saw this happening out the window and was able to capture it on camera without either of the two women knowing.

Many times we have opportunities to be the light in a person’s day—to say the words they need to hear most; I am thankful that I work in a place where people are sensitive to that take the time to pour into those around them, even when no one is watching.
