Have you ever had that one very bad day where you want nothing but to just break down and scream everything out? Some people would react to this feeling by bursting into an outrage, some would lie down and curl up. Whichever way it is, a lending understanding company is usually what is needed.
This happened to a fourth-grader from Alvin Independent School District named Kenlee. One day, she was having a rough day and got too overwhelmed that she just fell to the floor and curled up.
Instead of forcing her to stand up and get herself together, the school custodian, Mrs. Esther, who took the hearts of those who have seen, went down and laid down with her. She hugged her and smiled at her. She even covered her in a blanket so she would get comfortable.
One act of kindness
Kenlee’s mother, Hollie Bellew-Shaw, posted this picture on social media to show the compassion and love Alvin ISD employees show to their students. She wanted to show the world that one small act of kindness can mean a lot to certain people.
Bellew-Shaw only had good things to say for Mrs. Esther. "Kenlee adores Mrs. Esther,” Bellew-Shaw shared. “She always greets my daughter with kind words and a hug which is so special to her."
Mrs. Esther not only got kind words from Hollie but from the netizens who commented on their support and awe when they saw what Mrs. Esther did.
They all thanked Mrs. Esther because Kenlee will be remembering the kindness and compassion that she is giving her. Even through her adult life, she will always know that there is one person who genuinely cares for her. What a wonderful gift it is for Kenlee, from Mrs. Esther, don't you think?
Indeed, a little kindness can go a long way.
