DIY store kindness provides a revelation.

A DIY store with shelves of various types of tubing and wheels of cords and things. Text overlaid reads “DIY store kindness provides a revelation.”

“I had to collect a rather bulky object from a DIY store. A lady coming into the shop held the door for the couple leaving in front of me and for me, which was kind of her as I had my hands very full.

I think typically I would have labelled this as politeness, but today it struck me that ‘old fashioned good manners’ and kindness may sometimes be one and the same thing.

I’m fond of reminding my children that good manners cost nothing – likewise it costs nothing to be kind or to notice that kindness in others.”

What a great insight from Karen.
