A Simple Act Of Kindness

My daughter had basketball practice on Friday evening at Bailey Elementary School in Woodbury. During the one hour practice at 9-10 pm, I waited in the hallway and checked my emails.

The custodian saw me standing in the hallway alone. He stopped by and asked if I needed a chair. I said: “No, I am OK. Thank you.”

A few minutes later, he came back, set a chair behind me, without saying anything. When I noticed the chair, I was really touched.

I had a bad day and was feeling down. But this custodian’s simple act of kindness really warmed me up inside and made me feel better.

Thank you, Bill or John or Joel or Doug (Sorry I didn’t get your name) for your kindness. Through your example, you showed that no matter what you do in life, whether you are a principle or a custodian, your actions can touch people and make a difference.

Your simple act of kindness made a difference in my life.

P.S., I want thank all custodians at Woodbury schools. For my two kids’ basketball practices and games since last November, I have been at different schools several times a week. The custodians are mostly very nice and helpful. Thank you all for your kindness and for keeping our schools clean.
