Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Helping Celebrate My Colleague's Mother's Birthday


--by brindlegirl, posted Mar 31, 2018
I was able to do a beautiful act of kindness today, one that a year or two ago I never would have done. It wouldn't have even crossed my mind. But thanks to KindSpring and to all the souls that liven it, I am becoming the person I was put on this earth to be.

A work colleague messaged me this morning saying it was a sad day. I asked him why and he told me that the day was his mother's birthday. His mother passed away a few years ago. Through our conversation he mentioned he and his father were going out to lunch to celebrate her life. I asked him where he was going to lunch and left it at that.

After our phone call I immediately called the restaurant and asked to pay for their lunch today. I explained who they were and made arrangements to pay. When my friend and father arrived they were told that their lunch had already been paid for.

Do you know how happy this makes me?

I am so blessed to have found this place and all of you. You all inspire me to do better and be better. Everything I do is because of all of you. Thank you ♥
