On the way through the international terminal at LAX, I cleared security and saw an elderly man looking quite perplexed. He walked toward a security guard as if to ask him something, then thought differently, and backed away. I went on toward my gate, so I wouldn’t be late.
I hadn’t taken ten steps when I knew I had to go back...
Sure enough, he was still standing in the middle of a river of people, who were swarming by him. I asked if I could help him. Turns out he only spoke Spanish, and had no idea what gate had his flight home to El Salvador. I found out and helped him get there.
My simple act of kindness was a beacon of light to him in a strange land. We all get in a spot like this sometimes and need someone to reach out and help us.
Remember when someone helped you out? Maybe today is your turn. In fact, I’m sure it is.
Your kind word or small act of kindness may be just what your spouse, child, best friend or even a complete stranger needs today. Why not make it a point to find someone to share your good with today? It’s a splendid way to circulate prosperity.
