Kind-hearted lady

Yesterday morning when I opened the door to take my newspaper, I was surprised when I saw it was neatly folded and tucked between the door handle.

Usually I saw it's lying on the floor. Maybe the delivery-man was in a hurry to go to another place so they just threw the newspaper out when the lift opened. That's why it was always on the ground near to our door.

So I was wondering who helped me did that. Before taking the newspaper in, I even took a photo of it.


This morning when I opened the door, I saw it's tucked neatly there again! Then I saw an old lady was standing near to our neighbor's door and trying to tuck in his newspaper in the same way my newspaper was too.

So it's her!!! She comes to our place early every morning to sweep the floor, to make our place clean...And she is new here because I know the previous cleaners don't do this sort of things. I waited for her to finish and said "good morning" and thanks to her.

She smiled back gently to me and told me "don't mention it". I closed the door and started to hear her sweeping the floor...steadily...My heart felt so warm ...

That is such a nice story to pass along to the rest of us. I have to admit, at first I thought oh yeah someone probably read your paper then tucked it in your door. How nice to know there is someone just doing something nice and not expecting anything in return. I like the pic of your little dog. I have a little dog too, white with brown and some black and big ears.

To El Charolastra:

No, I don't think she has nothing to do in her life. She has her family and her job(although she's just a cleaner, but that is something for her to do too).

There are still many people like her, just doing good things out of their goodwill but never expect anything in return.

She told me : She help me do that, because she didn't want my newspapers getting dusty when she's sweeping the floor...How nice!!!

VirusHead said...

That was very sweet of her to do that.

When I delivered papers as a kid, we always folded the paper and left it on the stoop - or even in a little box that some people had for that purpose.

Yep, A real feelgood story.
Looking at the comments here it is plain that everybody loves/needs these kind of stories in this bad bad world we live in.
Thanks

Blogmad hit.

That was very sweet and touching. It just goes to show that no matter who you are or what you have, each of us has the power to do little things to make someone else's day better.
