I am so upset!!!! Where have manners gone? My husband and I were given a card to eat at a favorite resturant for a Christmas gift. We went there today. It is a buffett type resturant. I was walking back to our table and noticed this little old man. He was trying to use the ice cream machine and did not know how to use it. People were standing there waiting for their turn to get ice cream but no one was offering to help him. I was in total dismay. Of course he was not asking for help (as older people are embrassed to do so)but as they could see he needed help they could have offered. I went over to him and gently put my hand upon his and we got the ice cream together. When I got back to the table I was in tears. What has happen to kindness. I am sure our Lord was sadden by the lack of caring these people showed to a child of his. I pray I never get so wrapped up in myself I forget to help others.
