Re: random acts of kindness

went out to lunch today - saw a guys wallet on the bench seat across from a gentleman - turns out it wasn't his, so I gave it to the manager.

Afterwards the guy thanked me -even though it wasn't his

Re: random acts of kindness

don't know if this counts ...

DH (aka Paladin) worked 12 hours today getting ready for summer school, he sent me home as my Achilles was bothering me. ... I got him a whole slab of ribs from his favorite restaurant.

Re: random acts of kindness

I am soo happy to see all your replies, to see warmness in this world, although not "my world" since there are oceans among us. Yet all your stories warm me up and make me forget my miserable life for a while, I will also join this and I hope the world will become better

It would be wonderful for you to try this, Rose! Spread kindness!

Maybe you should try to keep a Kindness Journal. Everyday, try to write 3 things that you did, witnessed, or experienced that were acts of kindness or some kind of blessing. Do it for 6 weeks. You'll be surprised at how your worldview will change!

I'll do the first one for you: supporting the acts of kindness shared on this thread.
