Hope all of you are doing really good. After a long time, I am back with another act of goodness, which I experienced last week.
These days the weather is very good in this part of the world. The winter is mild and enjoyable. If the weather is this good, we usually prefer walking than hiring a taxi.
On Friday, as usual we decided to walk to the super-market. But as we stepped out of our building, we realised, that the weather had turned extremely cold and windy. So not risking our health, we decided to take a taxi. The whole town seemed to be affected by the weather that day. The road was full of traffic. It took us many minutes to cross each signal. We were enjoying the comfort of a warm car and beautiful songs, which were being played on the radio.
At a particular signal, while waiting for the signal to turn green we saw a guy cleaning the road sides and footpath. He was wearing a uniform which meant he was on duty. In that cold weather, watching him clean up the road left us shivering. Just then, just before the signal turned green, our taxi driver gave the guy some money for the work done by him. We were really surprised by this act of our driver.
Instantly, my husband said – He had such a noble thought of giving, that itself is a very good thing.
I was really blown away by the generosity of our driver. The money may be small, but the intention was good. And if the intention is good, the money will be useful too. The drivers in this part of the world don’t make much money. They, infact, struggle to reach their target sales each month. But still, this driver had the intention to help out which is an act of goodness.
I am happy to be able to learn something wonderful that day. The intention of giving itself, makes one, a great person at heart. I thank the driver for teaching us something wonderful that cold February evening.
