Recently on our trip to India, we were walking towards a temple in Kerala. There were a couple of steep steps which my daughter was finding it difficult to climb. A flower vendor sitting on the ground with his wares noticed this and came running to help us. His Random Act of kindness was so spontaneous that I couldn’t pause to admire this poor (in money) kind-hearted (he had plenty) man. We simply walked away to the temple after smiling and thanking him. On our way back I felt I must do something to make him happy. So I walked over to him. He got ready by asking how much flowers would I need! I simply handed over some money to him and told him to go and have a good breakfast. I left feeling happy with the events of the beautiful morning.
