I am the recipient of a recent act of kindness and would like very much for you to share it with your readers.

One day early last month I answered my doorbell to find a nice gentleman I didn’t know standing there holding a Walmart delivery box. He verified that he was at the address on the box and explained that the box had been delivered to his address and he was trying to get it to the correct destination.

I thanked him, apologized for the mistake, and told him he should have called the delivery service to pick it up and deliver to the correct address.

He responded that he worked in the delivery business and knew if he put the package back in the system there was no telling when it might reach me.

After conversing for a few minutes, learning the general area where he lived and later checking Google Maps on my phone, I discovered that he lived approximately 10 miles from me. He had taken the time to find his way and drive his personal vehicle to deliver the package in person.

What a kind, thoughtful and generous person!  How fortunate I am to have encountered him and been the recipient of his kindness.

May his kindness and generosity be returned to him many times over.

Sherry
