I remember a certain story that I found trending in Facebook. One of old lady went to a restaurant alone and she order food and cake for her. The lady waiter took care of her order and served the food one by one. The cake was served with a candle, maybe it was requested.

The lady stick the candle on the cake, light it and start clapping her, looks like she is singing a happy birthday for herself. As the rest of the customer she is alone and singing a happy birthday on her own, the lady waiter came to her and sing alone. One by one the customer went to her and sing along too. After the song, one by one gave her a hug, that left her teary eyed and happy.

When I saw that, I realized that some people had gone through with life. Everyone of us are having a struggle and problems, and one single act of caring, could change everything.

Another incident I saw at Amber's. This is a restaurant around Makati that is popular in selling Pancit Malabon (pancit is a thick noodle like in white color with a little sauce and some ingredients ) . During payday, since my mother love pancit Malabon, I will drop by Amber's to buy it. As I was waiting for my food for takeout, a mother approach the cashier and drop some coins in front of her. The mother said "these are all the money I have, I want to order pancit for my daughter's birthday so I want your kind heart to please allow me to buy one with this amount". The cashier left her and went inside the office of the owner, I assumed. The mother was waiting there with a weary face.

All of us that are waiting for our order are looking at that scenario. We are waiting for the next thing to happen. Then the owner went out and ask the lady what she want in a very nice manner. Everyone was looking at the mother. She looks pale. She looks tired and her clothes are slightly worn out, it looks old. Her hair was tied but it seems she haven't taken a bath. While talking to the mother, the owner too was looking at her features, and judging her state of life.

While talking the mother cracked her words and it seems she is near if crying, the owner hold her hand and ask her to calm down and her request will be granted. One of the customer gave her a seat and she was bowing to us because she was shy. She silently wait for her order. One of the customers ask how much money she gave and she answered "I have 27 pesos" 27 pesos is not even close to a dollar in our currency guys.

That customer scramble her bag and gave money to her "you can have this as an additional, happy birthday to your daughter". She started crying. Another customer asked her how old her daughter and she said that she is nine. A young girl approached her inside and called her name. The mother said to her daughter that she have a surprise.

Then the staff one by one went out, holding a big pack of Pancit Malabon, one transparent plastic of barbeque and 4 boxes of pichi-pichi. The mother stood in shock. The owner was behind and say, we will deliver this to your house please let us know your address. The daughter cried out loud when she saw the pancit. They both cried when the owner hug them both. I was crying seeing this. They walk pass through me and I was having a river of tears. I guess we are all crying and loving that moment. It is like one of the best movie ever filmed.

It strikes to the heart. It feels good. It feels good that in this world we know we have lots of problems and everyone is busy and all stress with their lives, there will be someone that will be there to lift a single thorns in our heart. That when it was lift, it feels lighter and it feels you can be strong again to fight about your life.

Be Kind, Always!

We all have struggles in life. We all have our downfalls and laid backs, but being kind should always stay in us. Being kind saves someone from their downfall. It give us faith in humanity and faith in ourselves. Even the odds of life changes our perception and how to deal with people, I hope being kind should always stay in us. It gives a great impact not only to those who receive the help, but to those who see the help and the ones who help. We are really living in this world that has responsibilities with each other. We are not born to take care of only ourselves alone. Everyone has it's purpose for saving someone so lets always be kind.

Those two stories make me realize that there is still genuinely kind person who is willing to help others. Yep, we should be kind always, we don't know what and how the person struggling in her life. Being kind is the least thing we can do for them.

Marami parin talagang mga tao na may mabubuting kalooban. Sana lahat ng tao sa mundo ganto nalang. Dapat lahat tayo nagmamahalan at nagtutulungan. Kudos dun sa may ari nung store napaka bait po sana lahat ng boss ganun po. Kahit mataas na narating nila nananatiling nakaapak parin ang kanilang sariling paa sa lupa.😊

Akala ko nga po paalisin kasi nagtawag yun tao nya, yun pala imemeet lang yun nanay. Naramdaman nya kasi yung willingness ng nanay na gawin ang lahat para sa anak.

Hearing stories like that make my heart leap with joy as it shows that there are still good people around that is willing to give a hand. Yung tipong masasabi mo sa sarili mo na "may pag-asa pa ang mundo". You'll get sense of hope to live and be kind too in our own little way. Spread kindness it'll make our world a better place to live in.

Being kind is a great help for those who are having a hard times, we didn't know what people are going through today, so it's better that we are always mindful with whatever we do.
