  1. It was right before I was moving out of the temporary housing facility to where I am now… One of the social workers had taken me out on her personal day for a day of shopping and lunch. We had developed such a wonderful relationship and she truly assisted me with how to deal with my mental illness, as well as the issues that were always a major factor in that Gawd awful place.
    I’ll never forget her kindness. She was a truly unique, and lovely person.

    1. Aww, that is so cool, Beckie 🙂 I like to see that gestures like that don’t get forgotten! Too often, kindness gets crushed into oblivion to make place for bad memories… This person does sound really nice, glad you met her on your path! xx

  2. The nicest thing I can think of is the people in my house allowing me to sleep in on weekends. Even my mom had stopped waking me up at the crack of dawn which I’ve been telling her to stop doing in forever. Being able to sleep until my body is ready to wake is the nicest thing I can ask for without asking for it.

    1. Sometimes, the smallest acts of kindness make such a difference in one’s life, right? It is really kind of them to allow yourself this simple pleasure that probably gives you a change to catch up on lost sleep during the previous week! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  3. When I was about 25, I got a really great job (the first one I’d ever held). However it was about 45 minutes away and one bus transfer to get to it. A woman I worked with sold me her “college car” for $50. I didn’t ask her for the help, she just volunteered. Said she knew what it was like to struggle to be on time, and she hoped that the car would do me some good as it was just sitting gathering dust. Years later I was able to ‘pay it forward’ when I sold my old car (which was sitting gathering dust) to someone who needed a car for a similar price. What goes around, comes around.

    1. That’s the kind of stories that help me keep my faith in mankind. I love it! And as much the fact that this lady helped you, as the fact that you remembered and did the same when you could afford it.

      A while back I started doing something that now comes as a reflex. When I do something for someone, and they tell me they owe me one, I always ask them to pay it forward whenever they can… Of course, I don’t have any control over if they’ll do it or not, but I can always hope so 🙂


    1. Good examples, Barb! I think these simple ways to be kind are not just about make another’s life a tad bit easier, but it is about aknowledging a stranger’s presence… And in our ”me myself and I” society, that’s always nice 🙂 Thank you for sharing!

  4. Where do I begin?

    A friend sent me to USA on a holiday where I was able to get involved in volunteer work and have an amazing time dancing and eating and visiting fascinating places.

    People I had never met (friends of friends) moved out of their apartments so my friends and I could stay there – this happened in Romania, Sweden, Isle Of Man, Spain, and many times in Wales.

    I have been insured to drive cars by the owners so that I could use them to travel to voluntary projects.

    Surprise gifts, surprise dinners, envelopes with money left in my bag (kept me going all those years as a volunteer).

    I have been treated to theatre, cinema and restaurants. I have been given clothes, shoes, bags. I have been sent flowers, teddies, beautiful letters and cards.

    Crated of apples left outside my front door (which I stewed and froze so I could have apple crumble throughout the cold winter months.

    Friends drove up from London to Liverpool to see me and bring gifts and some of my personal items after I was attacked.

    I have experienced so much kindness – it staggers me!

    1. WOW! That is quite an impressive list! I don’t know you personally, but I believe what Melanie mentionned above… What goes around comes around! If you’ve received this much, I am guessing that you are a very giving person yourself 🙂 (the mention of volunteer work in many of your examples proves just that) Thank you for sharing 🙂 xx
