As a young adult one of the many different jobs I held was at a sewing factory- as part of our wage we received a bonus for each of the correctly completed pieces we sewed together daily. The more pieces we produced, the more we were paid.
One day- it was my responsibility to put the "zipper" on two pieces of fabric...which would become a pair of shorts.
I quickly went about my work....sewing as fast as I could...putting together the three pieces , hoping to have a big pile done by the end of the day.
Mid-day my pile was huge! I was the envy of all the other ladies next to me (and I have to say I was sitting pretty tall and pleased with myself....thinking I was all that.)
Then it happened....my bubble busted. I had sewn all the zippers on up side-down! (you see... I was in such a hurry to win the zipper count that I did little to pay attention to that little piece of detail-the blue dot that let me know which way was the top...I could just kick my 18 year old self}
Now, before I could leave...I had to fix them all!
So, I began to correct my mistake- I didn't blame the few ladies that laughed at me, and the couple who even seemed a little mad.....but I will never forget the sweet little older lady that stayed and help me take apart the pieces of the zipper and put them back together.
She didn't have to...she didn't get paid anything extra. I just love that she showed me kindness...even when she really had no reason to.
I love all the pieces of my life...even the ones that are hard....and I believe there is a special place in Heaven for those who show kindness with no expectation of a reward.
I learned that day that pieces and kindness matters.
