Kindness of Strangers 07th March
Such a wonderful day today.
I want to publicly say thank you to this lovely gentleman seated on the right at Ogden Point Cafe and to his friends.
Nevaeh would not sit with my family and I as a friend joined our table that she did not recognize. She chose to sit at her own table. In case some of you don’t know my daughter, Nevaeh has Downs Syndrome and is extremely shy. This kind gentleman asked if his party of five could join her. I said sure give it a try. He said that if their joining Nevaeh caused her to leave the table that that they would move elsewhere. She was there first.
This lovely gentleman sat across from her and some how he knew not to look at Nevaeh or talk to her. She looked up at him and then continued to play on her ipad. Eventually his friends joined the table. I was waiting for her to crawl under the table or make a run for it.
To our amazement, there she sat with these five kind strangers for the duration of our breakfasts.
What a wonderful world this can be.
