    We lost a friend recently and I took a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup to them.

    My 6 year old son and I were waiting our turn to pay for our groceries. The woman in front of us was short on money. My six year old saw that she was feeling uneasy and offered to pay for her instead of buying his candy bar. His offer was so genuine as he looked at me for approval. I love that my son is so kind.
