“Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.” —Barbara De Angelis

Do you believe that each day, life gives us opportunities to be kind or share our blessings?

Unfortunately, most of us are too busy with our gadgets to notice them.

If you see someone asking for help, look around you.

Most people would either be recording or just staring at the person needing help.

Many people think that kindness is slowly disappearing.

Just last year, one woman proved that kindness is still alive.

T’Yanna Sims always believed in kindness and when she landed the job she loves, she made sure that whenever she can; she helps people in need.

“I’ve been driving for Miami-Dade Transit for one year, five months,” said T’Yanna in her interview with WSVN-TV.

Driving the bus every day allowed her to meet different people and also let her to help those who were in need.

T’Yanna would gladly help people, no matter how big or small their problems were. As long as she could offer help, then why not?

“I get to help people, I motivate people, I talk to people,” T’Yanna shared.

One of her many acts of kindness went viral when she assisted a blind man who was having a hard time crossing the streets.

Going the extra mile was never an issue for this kind-hearted bus driver.

“I was watching the passenger, the blind passenger, as he was getting off the bus, and I noticed he was a little wobbly,” T’Yanna recalled.

She immediately asked the passenger if he wanted her help to cross the street. With a smile, the passenger said yes.

According to the man T’Yanna helped, he really wanted to ask for assistance but was scared to do so.

It’s sad that people who need help don’t feel comfortable asking for it because they feel scared.

T’Yanna stopped the bus and helped the man get off the bus and cross the street.

“I let him grab my hand, and I proceeded walking him across Fifth Street,” T’Yanna explained.

The kind bus driver made sure that the man felt safe. She put his hand on a wall to let him know that he was already on Washington and Fifth Street.

“Yes, I love it,” T’Yanna said, smiling. “I was happy. I was full of joy. I just felt good. I felt like a hero, and I felt like I promoted good energy.”

She also wishes that more people would have the same mindset as her and that her viral story would inspire others to help.
