Life Vest Inside has had the very good fortune of finding writers willing to share their Kindness Stories/Articles with us. One of our special recurring writers is David Jablinowitz, Op-Ed Editor at Jerusalem Post, who is famous for his “bus stories.”

Grandfather’s Garden

A boy named Jake loved spending time in his grandfather’s garden. One day, he noticed that his grandfather seemed to be struggling to keep up with the weeding and pruning. Jake asked if he could help, and his grandfather gratefully accepted.
Over the next few weeks, Jake spent every afternoon working in the garden with his grandfather. He learned about the different plants and how to care for them. He listened as his grandfather told him stories of his own childhood and the adventures he had growing up.
One day, Jake’s grandfather fell ill and was unable to work in the garden. Jake knew how much the garden meant to his grandfather, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. He recruited some of his friends and together they worked tirelessly to get the garden back in shape.
When his grandfather saw the garden, he was overcome with emotion. He hugged Jake tightly and thanked him for his kindness and hard work. From that day on, Jake made it a habit to help his grandfather in any way he could, knowing that his simple acts of kindness could make a big difference in his grandfather’s life.
