This is my story ! here is our maintenance man ... a consistent compliant about this person all across our new community about him and he turned out no different , very tough , yet strong old man who turns up at my door , literally banging the door while my lil one is taking his nap who is sick running temp and he woke up with all the noise and chaos . He looks at the window from outside the home and as I still open the door with my kid in my arms he starts " do you have the window mesh and did you raise the ticket for the repair " (BTW my lil one unhook the mesh off the window on Day 2 🙂 tell me about a 4 year old ) and with all that not so friendly look on his face. For some reason , I only saw a tired , weak , frustrated man in that rude tone of his ... I tried answer all his questions . Next , he goes upstairs to the cupboard and shouts "Ma'am do you have the hinges to this ? " (twice - thrice , even though i told him I will be up in a min. I walk up and find the hinges right by the door 🙂 He says "ok got them" . While he fixes all of the other repairs at home he uses all of the Fs and Bs and walks out of the door saying its all done and gets into his lil Golf Caddy (vehicle) ... let me remind you there is not a single moment I saw him relaxed this entire time .. I went up to to the door to Thank him and he did respond "no problem Ma'am". Before he started the vehicle , I asked him "Sir would you like a cup of coffee?" and his response was exactly what I was looking for - he smiled 🙂 and said "no ma'am , Im ok". He must be as old as my dad if he were alive ,he has no business to call me Ma'am but he did maybe sarcastic or otherwise but thats his job today. Every person who is possibly not kind is the one who needs the most ! His smile made me feel better today ! He was too tired , he was exhausted , its been crazy weather out here pretty cold and I hear he is the only one who handles all of the maintenance around ... maybe he is going through a lot in hislife right now , I'm sure he has seen a lot more too ...Being kind doesnt hurt #randomactofkindness #ROK #Spreadhappiness!

Every day try to do something nice for others instead of dwelling in the negative. Be kind to others
