Gloria had been admitted to the hospital and one day was just looking outside her room window watching the ironworkers hard at work, despite the poor weather conditions. She noticed that one of the guys in the group actually looked up and waved at her—so of course, she waved back. He even had a little message written on the beam for Gloria. She says, “I looked down on the beam and he had written, ‘Get well.’”

So she decided that she should also write a little message to the worker, Jeff, and thought quick before scribbling “Stay safe” on a piece of paper and displaying it in her window for him to see. This gesture struck Jeff almost immediately. “That sign kind of crushed me. I don’t know how she knew ‘Stay safe’[…]It’s kind of like ironworker lingo to stay safe.”

His entire crew of workers was touched by this message and Jeff later took to Facebook to share his experience with Gloria with everyone else. The acts of goodwill though didn’t stop there. After reading of their interaction, a complete stranger dropped off an envelope to Jeff and the crew; inside was lunch money.

It’s amazing how a small act of kindness can start a magnificent domino effect.
