Random Acts of Kindness

Hopefully, the sharing of personal stories and experiences will help motivate and encourage others to keep spreading kindness. Whether it is an act of kindness that we have received, or one that we have done, or even one that we have witnessed. Let's try and make the world a better place, one random act of kindness at a time!

 

 

We have a crazy dog. Now don't get me wrong, we love our crazy border collie, but if she gets out of the yard, she runs. It's always a concern for us because she just bolts with no thought of cars or any potential danger. Along with our crazy dog, we also have awesome neighbors that have always looked out for her. There was one time when Luna got loose and we couldn't find her for a while. Just as my kids and I were beginning to worry, our phones started ringing. My son answered his cell, while I answered mine. Then the house phone rang. To our surprise, it was three different neighbors letting us know the recent location of Luna. It was like our own neighborhood GPS system! Thankfully, we were able to "find" and rescue Luna because of the caring and kindness of neighbors.

One cold, winter afternoon I was rushing down the supermarket aisle totally preoccupied with my own negative thoughts. It was right after Christmas and I was trying to think of cheap, nutritious meals to make for my family. All of a sudden I was awakened from my stupor by a sweet old man that was coming the opposite way down the aisle. "Slow down, enjoy the ride or you might get a ticket", he exclaimed with a huge smile on his face. Along with his smile, he was wearing a baseball cap that clearly showed he was a veteran. I smiled at him, and thanked him for his service - and for snapping me out of my pity party.

 

 

 

Please share your experiences with all of us. Don't be put off because you fear that others will think you are just bragging or showing off. Look at it as sharing your personal story so that others may be encouraged and inspired to do the same. So, what's your kindness story?
