"A few years ago I crashed my bicycle near the downtown area of my hometown when my wheel got stuck while crossing a freight transport railroad track. I went down hard and I was stunned, as I never really rode in this neighborhood before. I stumbled my way to the curb and sat there to take inventory of my body when a few people who saw the crash came to my aid and assisted me. Another person came over with an unopened bottle of water and gave it to me. These people didn't even know me, nor did they speak my language in anything more than broken phrases, but they showed kindness to me, simply because I was a person who needed it."
"Our neighbor asked if I knew anyone who could check in our their cat while they are away. She said she would pay the going rate. I asked my son (a HS senior who ADORES cats) if he would be interested in the gig. With a huge smile he said “of course!”. When I asked him what his rate would be, he said, oh, that doesn’t seem like something I should charge money for. I would just like to help, and get to hang out with the kitty. 🥰 "
"My daughter just started her freshman year at college over 600 miles away, where my sister got her undergrad degree in 2015. Out of the kindness of her heart, my sister went way above and beyond: she planned our 4-day move-in itinerary, caravanned with us, stayed with us, showed us around the campus and neighboring towns, carried a car-full of stuff down the street and up the stairs for move-in, bought last-minute supplies, documented the trip with terrific photos, and was an all-around wonderful companion for this momentous occasion. "
"One of my colleagues honored my work anniversary this month by personally bringing flowers to my home, with a note from the whole group. "
"My husband always makes sure our birdfeeders are clean and full – kindness to our bird friends."
I went to a local gift shop for the first time and saw a bracelet. When I told the owner that I might be allergic to it, she gave it to me, told me to gift it if I couldn’t wear it!
I went to spend some birthday money, then needed to return something. I asked how much a purse was and she gave it to me! The item that I returned was $13, and the purse cost between $60 and $65!
