I witnessed my son’s spontaneous generosity.
Jake and I were moving things from his old apartment when we met his next-door neighbor, a delightful 90-year-old woman from Colombia.
She spoke no English, but we managed to learn she is a nature-lover. She made admiring comments about Jake’s bird feeder. He had planned to take it to his new house.
But without hesitating he made it a gift to the woman, placing it where she could see the birds without leaving her living room.
Jake planted a little bit of good will that day, and a new friendship took flight!
