A little act of kindness goes a long way

​I posted on Kroger’s Facebook page last night, and in less than 24 hours, there have been over 1,500 likes on it!  The comments have all been so positive, too.  It got me to thinking:  we’re all so quick to post the negative, but I’m betting far more positives happen to all of us.  Let’s make 2017 the year we all share the positives that we see.  We could flood the world with so much love and inspire others to share their positive experiences, too.  

We ALL make a difference, every single day, whether we know it or not.  This year, be quick to give a public shout out to those who make a difference in your life.  I’m going to make it a goal to do so myself!

Here is what I posted to the Kroger Facebook page:

“There are still excellent people in the world!

Kroger, today (1/4/17) was Gramma’s 90th birthday.  I was  in the Athens, Ohio, store this afternoon buying a cake for her and talking with the friendly cashier.  He asked about the cake, and when I told him about Gramma, he exclaimed, “Wait right here just a minute please!” and walked away.  He came back a minute later with a rose he’d purchased at the flower stand and asked me to give it to her to help her celebrate.  Instead, I asked him to give it to her because she was there with me, and I snapped this picture!   This young man, Wes, went above and beyond, and his act of kindness really made Gramma’s day.  I hope this message gets to you, and I hope someone at corporate recognizes him for this!  It was just too sweet!”

  1. Yeah! We are so quick to point out the negative in stores and restaurants. I love when people report on the good things too! Our belief is that if I am going to take time to complain we also have to take the time to tell managers about the good things. We try to keep to reporting 2 or 3 good things after we say something negative.
