Patience gives everyone a boost

My dad is now walking with a walker. I’m always taking him to doctor appointments, the food store and lunch. I have been so moved by all the kind people who slow down, stop, wait, or offer to move their cars for us when we’re fairly pinched in. People are good and getting Dad around has been a great reminder.

The other day, a young kid waited about 3-5 minutes while I got Dad settled in the car. I kept thanking him and he kept smiling. It gave me a real boost and allowed Dad and I to talk about what a nice kid he was.
