Tell Us Your Kindness Story
Carrying Marbles

I just want to let everyone know what an act of kindness meant to me. I needed help to carry a bag of landscape marbles to the cash register at ACE hardware in Bucyrus, Ohio, last evening. I found the bag I wanted and tried picking them up but, because of my work in bus driving and home health care, my arm strength is not enough to carry a bag of this weight. My accomplice in this ordeal was an eight grade girl from Bucyrus Elementary. I told her I didn't know how I could get them inside. She said, "Here I'll get them!" I told her they were too heavy, but she lifted it anyways. About half way to the store register, a man came up and offered to carry the bag. What a blessing he was! He even carried my bag to my trunk, after I paid for it. This act of kindness is absolutely UNFORGETTABLE! I told him thank you, but those words seemed so small compared to how I felt! I also love helping others in need; having it returned to me was wonderful. I am very grateful!
