Stories of Kindness from Around the World

You Never Know the Effects of Your Actions


--by Mish, posted May 3, 2018
It was driven home, to both my husband & myself, that we really never know how our small acts of kindness may impact someone.

We were at a Wake yesterday, for an acquaintance we knew from our local park. My husband used to walk around the park with him & they would talk on the phone once in a while. When we went up to his wife to share our condolences & introduced ourselves to her as her husband's park friends, what she said to my husband amazed us.

She said her husband always spoke about Harvey (my hubby) with great fondness & had a picture with an inspiring quote on it that Harv had given him on their fridge & wouldn't let anyone remove it. And that he was always sharing things Harv had said with them. We were blown away, as we had no clue about any of this. I almost cried & I could see Harv was visibly moved too.

So, never doubt the power of your "small" acts of kindness, because they can have a HUGE effect on people.
