Manners Matter

A few weeks ago, my family was waiting to be seated at an Olive Garden.  The front entryway was filled with people desperately wanting to just get a table and eat some food. 

Then, a family walked in with a couple of kids and the mother was pregnant expecting another.  My wife and daughter were seated on a bench and my son was sitting on a chair next to them.  Immediately, my son jumped up and said "Here Ma'am, please take my seat."  The woman gladly accepted and many other women in the room told my son what a great gentlemen he was.  All around the room, other men sat on chairs and benches and no one offered their seat.  It was a 10 year old boy who has been raised with biblical morals and values who knew what the right thing to do was. 

Afterward, I whispered to my son what a wonderful thing he did and how proud I was of him.  He glowed all night because of all the recognition from his simply act of kindness and chivalry.
