THOUGHTS FOR THE 4TH OF JULY On Memorial Day we celebrate our veterans and for some of us those that meant the most to us, no longer here. Labor Day we celebrate the people that are the backbone of this…
RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
That is a lot of hands up. What spirit that crowd had. That man may have forgotten for a moment that his disability was something that kept him from really living life. It isn’t a disability it is an ability to do things differently and look how many friends you can make.
This kind person saw a car with a window down and it was raining. She or he placed a grocery bag over the window to keep the car dry. If you can’t read the note it explains it all.
If it were not for this man those kittens he was carrying across a flooded river would have drowned. Mommy, swimming behind him could never have gotten them all across
I am on a kitten run now. This fireman saved this kitten from a burning building and had to treat it for smoke inhalation or it would have died. Thanks to all our firemen.
I could go on with this for hours. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of these types of pictures available on line.
Take a look it may give you an idea on how to pay it forward.
AN UNEXPECTED KINDNESS
I was in a discount store shopping for groceries. After the tab was rung it was over my limit.
I offered to go to my car and see if I had the balance of $7.38. The young man cashiering said “wait, Miss,” Miss at my age was a compliment already, “I can take care of that,” he said.
I thought the store was the one to overlook it, but no he took his own bank card out of his pocket and paid the balance for me. I was nearly in tears at his thoughtfulness. I told him, “that is the kindest thing anyone has done for me in a long time.”
No matter the amount, for him it was generous, I felt privileged to have met this young man.
I am still waiting for the appropriate way to return his generosity; he has refused so far.
Not more than a few days later I was shopping again. I was in line behind a man at the check stand who was buying local honey. I commented that local honey is good for allergies in the area. He assured me that was exactly the reason for the purchase, his own allergies.The conversation continued and I mentioned a honey being brought in from New Zealand that was to be a healer for many conditions. A friend had told me about this following her own chemotherapy and the help it had been. I must have mentioned that I was hopeful of similar healing potentials.

When I exited the store the man, Marvin was waiting by his bike at the door. “Would you mind if I prayed for you,” he asked. The only answer could be of course. Marvin hugged me and said a kind prayer for my health and recovery.
I believe it has worked I have felt improvement since that prayer.The kindness of strangers is overwhelming. Two saints in one week. I consider myself a fortunate woman.
