While mom Dianne Hoffmeyer was standing in line at a coffee shop, she could hear the two women standing directly behind her making fun of every part of her appearance and even her order… basically making no efforts whatsoever to conceal their insults.
Once Dianne got to the register, however, she did something that shocked the cashier. Dianne said that she wanted to pay for the two women’s coffee – giving back in the most unexpected of circumstances.
Dianne wrote about her encounter and response on the internet and the story quickly became viral. The reason why? She wanted to show everyone that words truly do hurt, but just because someone hurts you, that doesn’t give you the right to reciprocate.
“Be kind, don’t judge, and have respect for others. If we can all do this, the world would be a better place. The point is to teach this to the next generation.” – Jasmine Guinness
Dianne’s response is a beautiful picture of unconditional love — that is, receiving kindness when you don’t deserve it… in the slightest!
