When 88-year-old Gloria Porter from Pennsylvania in the U.S. suffered health problems, doctors decided to admit the woman to the local Excela Frick hospital for medical procedures.
Away from her own personal belongings, without a car and in a strange environment, the old woman soon got bored. So Gloria decided to kill time by staring out the window of her hospital room.
At that time, construction workers were busy adding an extension to the hospital. They provided the woman with a bit of entertainment in lonely days. To communicate with the construction workers she had been watching every day, she decided to write them a message.
The sick woman had written her message in large letters on a peace of paper and stuck it to the window, so the construction workers could see it. The message read: ‘Be careful’. The concern turned out to be mutual, because soon one of the construction workers decided to send a message back to the woman.
“The men regularly looked at me and sometimes waved, so of course I waved back. At one point I saw that one of them had written something with chalk on one of the iron beams.
“I thought it would be a nice gesture to wish her well. I hope her health improves soon and that’s why I wrote ‘Get better soon’ to her,” said the man responsible for the message.
“That was very sweet of the hard workers,” Gloria said. “It really cheered me up.“ The construction worker was also happy with the small acts of kindness they had shared: “I wish everyone would do these little things, it would make the world a little nicer.”
