Utility Worker Saw A Crying Woman In His Rearview Mirror And His Act Of Kindness Started A Wave

One city worker showed a woman kindness during one of the lowest points of her life, and it ended up having a monumental impact, one he did not see coming.

Life can be a trying, unfair experience filled with unexpected hardships. It's during those times when a little love, kindness and empathy can make a world of difference. Random acts of kindness may improve someone's day, but we may never see the outcome or results of that deed. However, one man, Calvin Godette, did. His simple act of kindness changed someone’s entire life.

Calvin is a utility worker in Chesterfield, Pennsylvania, and he knows what it means to fix problems. He also understands kindness and shows constant care, love and consideration for his fellow man. He does it so often that he spends approximately half of his income helping other people, according to a video posted on YouTube.

Calvin knows that a simple act of kindness could change an entire life.

“You never know, Calvin said. “You could do something for somebody or talk to someone and you could change their whole situation.”

When Calvin was in the drive-thru at Burger King, he spotted Denise Walters, a woman in the car behind him. She was sad, obviously going through something painful at the time. Calvin decided to pay for her meal, a small way to try and brighten her day. 

Denise had just lost her husband, Andy, of more than 40 years.

“Somebody to do something that nice for you on that very moment when I thought nothing could make me happy again, it just touched my heart,” Denise said.

So, she tracked Calvin down. She stopped him on the highway and thanked him for his kind act. She also told Calvin’s employer about his act, and got him recognized before a county board. 

Calvin and Denise have remained in touch since that day. Also, Calvin’s act of kindness motivated Denise. She now randomly helps other people, showing them kindness and love. 

Ephesians 4:32 “And be kind to one another, full of pity, having forgiveness for one another, even as God in Christ had forgiveness for you.
