Dad Salts Road At His 38-Year-Old Daughter's Workplace So She Doesn't Fall

A 38-year-old woman's dad has gone viral for his sweet and simple act of kindness.


A simple act of kindness

No matter what age you are, good dads never stop caring about their children. Case in point, the father of Elizabeth Bautista Boyd.

He went out of his way to drive to his daughter's workplace on an icy day, waited for her to arrive, and proceeded to pour a trail of salt from her vehicle to the front door so she wouldn't fall. By the way, she's a fully-grown adult of 38 years old.

Boyd decided to take photos of her dad in the act and post it on Facebook. Since then, this dad's good deed has gone viral.

This dad impacted a lot of people

In a time when so many haven't seen their dads in months — or even a full year — due to COVID-19, this sweet father's small act of kindness resonated with a lot of people. As I'm writing this, the post has nearly 150,000 reactions and over 12,000 comments.

Georgia Bowen Buchert wrote: "This brings tears to my eyes. What a blessing to be so loved."

Teresa Burkhart said this dad reminded her of her own father. "So Happy you still have your Dad mine has been gone 15 years I miss him everyday."

Kendra Christian Cosey seemed a little bit jealous. "Where are y’all finding these kind of parents? \ud83e\udd37\ud83c\udffd\u200d\u2640\ufe0fPlease let me know because I want one. I slipped and fell and my mom laughed. \ud83e\udd26\ud83c\udffd\u200d\u2640\ufe0f"

Katie Jean got emotional: "I’m literally crying. How freaking sweet. I just can not handle it."

Kindness is kindness, big and small

While kindness can be conflated with heroism i.e., climbing up a burning building and saving a stranger, or rescuing a kidnapped girl. Kindness can also be simple day-to-day things that strung together lead to a wonderful life both for you and for those around you.
