In Alabama, some friends gathered for dinner at a restaurant, when one of the men, Jamario Howard, noticed an older woman sitting alone. He invited the woman to dine with them. The woman, Eleanor, was thrilled to join the young men and enjoy their company.
While together, the woman explained that she was a widow and the next day would have been her 60th wedding anniversary.
The kindness shown by Jamario definitely affected Eleanor, letting her know that she wasn’t alone.
But, Jamario says that visiting with Eleanor really impacted him, going so far as to say it changed his outlook on life and how he looks at other people. From now on, he has vowed to do a better job of imagining what others might be going through — and offering to, at the very least, be kind and nice to them.
