Oftentimes, it’s the small gestures in your life that really hit home. Seemingly minor things that move you deeply. Tara Carter experienced this firsthand one day, when she was on her way home from the weekly trip to the store with her husband Chris.
She was looking forward to a relaxing afternoon and was joking around in the car with Chris, until he suddenly stopped and was silent. He spoke just one sentence: “Take the food home and come back and get me.” Tara was puzzled, as Chris got out of the car. But she trusted her husband and sat herself behind the wheel. Then she realized why Chris had felt called to do as he did.
This attitude is precisely why she had married him. These exact qualities — a willingness to help, honesty and warmth — are ones they want to pass on to their own son. That’s why she shared this story online, where it has moved thousands of people.
That day, Tara fell in love with her husband all over again. Helping someone out like this is second nature for Chris. We need more people like him. Because with a lot of little good deeds, they make the world a better place — for everyone.
