I was touched by someone’s kindness and I’d like to share the experience.
I was driving on Luckakuck and went to change lanes, thinking it was clear. I didn’t check my blind spot well enough and heard a honk as I went to change.
The car pulled up beside me; the lady made eye contact and shrugged her shoulders.
I mouthed, “I’m sorry.”
She gave me a peace sign and a thumbs up. I was expecting an angry driver and a very different hand gesture. I was completely at fault with what happened and this kind woman defused what could have been a very unpleasant experience.
I’m so grateful to have been the recipient of such a simple, but profound act of forgiveness, kindness, understanding and acceptance.
This woman’s peaceful response made more impact than anger would have. There is power in peace!
