Most of the time we are pre occupied by our responsibilities as well as by piled up things we need to accomplish every day.

It’s vital to enjoy every moment and be patient when things don’t turn out the way we expected it to be.

Life is not only about the future and the past; it is also about making things right and wonderful at present. Patience can make you avoid doing hasty decisions or insensible judgment. It can help us triumph over disappointment and could make us see wonders and lessons from little and great things.

Through tolerance and patience we are able to reflect about the situation carefully and make us perceive the bigger picture of a situation.

A story of Sarah Owen Bigler will show us how patience works for her and her daughter in an unexpected way. She posted her inspiring story on her Facebook page.

“Yesterday Matt was sick. I picked up Archie from the sitter and Eloise from school and decided to run to Target for a few things. I had hoped to be in and out quickly.

I found a line with just one person ahead of me and began organizing my items on the conveyor. After placing my items, I look up to see that the person ahead of me was an elderly woman. She was paying for her items with change and wanted to purchase each separately.

Part of me, the part that had a long day at work, the part of me who had a 1 1/2 year old having a melt down in the cart, the part that had set an unnecessary timeline for Target and getting home, was frustrated with this woman and the inconvenience she had placed on me.

BUT then I watched the young employee with this woman. I watched him help her count her change, ever so tenderly taking it from her shaking hands. I listened to him repeatedly saying “yes, mam” to her. When she asked if she had enough to buy a reusable bag, he told her she did and went two lines over to get one for her and then repackaged her items. Never once did this employee huff, gruff or roll his eyes. He was nothing but patient and kind.”

“As I was watching him, I saw that Eloise was too. She was standing next to the woman, watching the employee count the change.

I realized I hadn’t been inconvenienced at all. That my daughter was instead witnessing kindness and patience and being taught this valuable lesson by a complete stranger; furthermore, I realized that I too needed a refresher on this lesson.

When the woman was finished, the employee began ringing up my items and thanked me for my patience. I then thanked him for teaching us patience and kindness by his treatment of that elderly woman.

And although my timeline for target was askew, when he was finished I pushed my cart through the store trying to find the manager.

I wanted her to know of the employee’s, kindness and patience, and how much it meant to me. After tracking her down and sharing the story with her, we left Target with a cart full of consumable items, but what is more a heart full of gratitude for such an invaluable lesson.

If you are ever in the Glendale Target, give Ishmael a smile and a nod. The world could use more people like him.
It’s nice that this simple gesture of the cashier made a stranger realized the value of patience.”

Sometimes we really just have to pause for awhile and have a break from our busy world, to realize and notice the wonderful things around us.

These little acts of kindness and patience are good inspiration and examples especially for children who are observing. These children are our future; let us continue showing them proper character traits by being a good role model.

Don’t forget to SHARE this to your friends and family! Remember both great and little acts of kindness are eye opener for young children and adults!

Located in Nairobi, Kenya is a small hotel, the Giraffe Manor. Guests get the chance to spend time with the endangered Rothschild giraffes that circle the entire estate. It's not every single day that you can actually live, walk and possibly dine with a giraffe so imagine the surprise it brings guests whenever a giraffe decides to drop by and say hello for breakfast.

The giraffes live in harmony with the guests in the Manor.

The giraffes live in harmony with the guests in the Manor.

The Giraffe Manor was built in 1932, orginally as a home for Sir David Duncan. Now, the property serves as a tourist attraction and a conservation site for endangered species. This inconceivable place is now a beacon of hope for the Rothschild Giraffe that is nearing its extinction. The hotel sits on twelve acres of land with at least 140 acres of forest surrounding it.

Despite every chaos and adversity happening around the world today it's amazing how simple and random acts of kindness continue to transcend all these negative things. There are countless ways to show kindness and be reminded of the goodness of humanity. Meanwhile, YouTuber Josh Paler Lin shows us exactly that in a social experiment he performed himself. In a powerful and inspiring video, Lin gives us an overview of how easy it is to make someone's day through simple acts of kindness.

A little good deed that can make a big difference in someone else's life.

It also depicts the challenges that people go through everyday and a little something to give them back and cheer them up. Kind acts like giving food to the homeless, paying for whoever is behind you in the drive thru or for a stranger who is having a rough week (and the list goes on). It doesn't always have to be a grand gesture but a deed done with the sincerest intention like paying it forward.
