Light in the Darkness

Welcome to my Light in the Darkness meme! (If you missed my post on the inspiration for this meme, you can read all about it HERE.)

This is the place to share good things that are happening in our world...whether it's a link to a news article/video, something from your personal experience...anything good that can bring light into darkness!
You never know who may be watching your actions! An example from my life...

Last week, Matt & I stopped at the grocery store after church. As we were crossing the parking lot, we passed an elderly lady parked in a handicapped space. She was just finishing up loading her groceries into her trunk. I offered to take her cart for her so that she didn't have to go back into the store or cross the lot to one of the cart corrals.

Fast forward to yesterday when Matt told me that he took a cue from me. I didn't know what he was talking about at first. 

He explained that he had gone to the store w/ the Blessings on Saturday. There was an elderly woman in line behind him. He let her go ahead of him. Then, once in the parking lot, she was parked near our van. On his way to put his cart away, he offered to take hers also.

Both of these were simple gestures of kindness that can mean a great deal to others.
