Wonderful Wednesday - Unexpected Kindness

Wonderful Wednesday - it is wonderful when our children do unexpected acts of kindness.

Each Wonderful Wednesday throughout the month of September I will be celebrating unexpected acts of kindness. This week I am celebrating unexpected acts of kindness from my children.

The first unexpected act of kindness was done by my teenie bopper when she was six years old. My husband and I had been married for twelve years at that point and he took me shopping in order to upgrade my diamond engagement ring. We saw a ring that was to our liking and asked the sales woman the price. She said, "It costs six." My little girl, reached into her pocket, pulled out six dollar bills and said to the sales woman, "Give my mama that rock." We all had a good laugh. The sales woman had meant six thousand dollars, not six dollars.

The second unexpected act of kindness was from my son. When he was about three years old I started to choke for some reason I do not remember now. My husband and teenie bopper sat and watched me, they knew it was not serious. My son jumped up, got me a glass of water and said, "Mommy they don't care if you die, but I do. Here's some water so you will feel better. I would be delighted to save your life." While I was not near death, I was touched that my baby boy wanted to save me. I am still tickled about the fact that he was "delighted" to do so.



The third unexpected act of kindness came from my big twin girl. One morning the twins got into a fight over a toy and the little twin beat up the big twin in an inappropriate way. I started to discipline the little one when the big twin ran over and hugged her sister. The big twin said, "I am mad at you mommy. You are mean to my sister. No one can be mean to my sister." She did not care that her sister was being punished for hurting her. No matter what, no one can ever do anything wrong to the little twin when her big twin is around.

The final unexpected act of kindness came from my little twin. A month or so ago, my husband and I were having a disagreement about something. All of the sudden she started saying, "Give your husband a little respect. Give your husband a little respect. Give your husband a little respect." It was funny and sweet the fact that she thought her father should be given respect. It was a kindness in defense of her father that I liked.

Our children do many things for us. One of the sweetest is their little unexpected acts of kindness. So, the question for you this Wonderful Wednesday is what have unexpected acts of kindness have your children performed recently?
