Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Friendship Renewed

Friendship renewed with gifts

Friends for about 30 years visited me from New Jersey. I met them about a year ago and stayed with them in their New Jersey home for 4 days. We used to live in nearby towns about ten minutes drive. We used to meet very often and help each other.

Like the sunrise after a long night, our renewed friendship brings warmth, hope, and the promise of a beautiful day filled with shared moments.

They also made a donation towards my kind acts. I am grateful to them.

I gifted them some quote cardsm books and some other items.

Amidst the noise of life, I heard familiar laughter, and suddenly, the colours of our friendship blossomed anew, painting my world with joy and love.--FriendshipY

Helping In Difficult Situation

Day 30:
I was going to donate to a GoFundMe that was close to my heart, but I had an unexpected opportunity to donate to one even closer, as a family at my school had a sudden very difficult situation arise, and a donation would be in order.

Face Paint and Twish Balloon Animals For Joy

Day 26:
Our older daughter has a party business and she has taught my wife (her mom) how to face paint and twist balloon animals.
Our younger daughter lives over a five hour drive from her sister and runs events in her area. She has asked me and her mom to come up next month, my wife to face paint and me, to twist balloons.
So, I've been learning and practice my balloon animals a little each day and have been bringing my creations to the grocery store on weekends or to my school to give to little brothers and sisters (3- and 4-year olds).
Today I gave a yellow dog to Martin, the little brother of a student in my class. Martin has recently turned 3. When I gave it to him this morning his joy brought me so much joy. He squealed, "Doggie!" and ran around the room holding up his new pet.

Filling Martin's bucket filled mine as well.

Knitting And Earth’s Day

I finished knitting and putting together an orange triceratops and I'm going to put him in the box for India. I'm in the process of knitting a pink stegosaurus for my daughter. When she was two we flew to Canada for a conference and we stayed with a family in Calgary with children a similar age to Ruth.

Before we flew home we visited a number of places in and around Calgary. The Zoo had a wonderful display of life size dinosaurs and Ruth fell in love with a stegosaurus. We bought a stegosaurus home with us so I thought it would spark memories for her.

In Celebration of Earth Day, I've put two window bird feeders up. The sunflowers I put in a pot a couple of weeks ago are growing well.

I've put together a collage of photos for you to see.

My Greatest 98-Year Old Neighbor

Day 27:
I have a 98-year old neighbor. She's incredible. You would think she was in her 70s. Very sharp and moves better than I in some respects 🙂.
She gets her groceries delivered weekly, but every weekend I call to ask if she needs something else, and I'll shop for her (usually a few items) and bring them to her when I get done with shopping. She's the greatest!

Flower Bouquets For Administrative Assistant Day

About a decade ago for Administrative Assistants' Day I asked my students to bring one flower to school so we could make a bouquet for our office staff. That year we not only got single flowers but full bouquets as well.
A decade later it has spread to the entire school and the office is like a flower shop. Because we've done it for so long, some classes changed things up a bit, bringing plants, making and signing a poster and making individual cards. The kids love seeing the staff smile.

Moving from deficiency to offerings

Spoke to my cousin for 3 hours. He is going through a difficult breakup and his anxiety was acting up. Through the conversation, helped him feel things he was not allowing himself to feel but also shift him gradually to remember the unique gifts he brings to the world so that he can move to a more open hearted space. We both left the conversation feeling full and nourished.

Be Enchanted 😊

I ordered this book on the recommendation of gardengal and it was delivered this afternoon.

I thought it would be a good book to put into the Happy Bag I posted about earlier, for our neighbor-friend’s Mom. I can order another one for myself. I think this would be a good book for her to read as she undergoes her lung cancer treatments.

📕 One review: “This book has nuggets of gold, great wisdom that will serve in the practice of waking up to the sacred in all.”

Class Wish List At The Door

I went to school with Kara decades ago and we still are connected via FaceBook. I have seen all she does with her community, faith and taking more children into her family. She's very positive and is always trying to make the world better one person, one act at a time.
This week I found some items for my class from my Amazon class list at my front door: Expo pens, a language activity book and calculators.
This is the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you, Kara and family. Merry Christmas!

Package Of Kindness

Richard took some of the items we didn't need to the Food Bank and I had an idea for a bottle of wine which was part of the package. I will drop it off at the Hairdressers as they have moved to new premises and I think it will help them celebrate!

I'm putting together a package for our neighbours too!

The photo shows the book and the raccoon and owl I've knitted to accompany them.
