Motivation Monday

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.”

Tiny Hands, Big Hearts

In the bustling recreation area of the IKEA store, children were laughing and playing, lost in the world of make-believe. Amongst them was my five-year-old granddaughter, a whirlwind of energy and curiosity.
On this particular day, as the children scampered around, my granddaughter noticed a small boy struggling with his untied shoelaces. Without a second thought, she motioned for him to stop and knelt down before him. With tiny hands and a determined spirit, she carefully retied his flopping shoelaces. It was a task she had recently mastered herself.
No words were exchanged, but a silent understanding passed between them. A genuine smile brightened both their faces, and they exchanged shy grins before darting off in different directions, continuing their playful adventures.
In that simple act of kindness, amidst the colorful chaos of a play area, two young souls connected. It was a sweet reminder that compassion knows no age, and even the smallest gestures can create beautiful moments of shared joy and understanding.
