Stories of Kindness from Around the World

How Are You This Morning


--by DANCE, posted Oct 21, 2018
You know I put my heart and soul into making my guests and students feel welcomed and looked after. I cooked them homemade meals, helped them with anything they need, spend time with them, listen, surprise them with treats, I ask them every morning how they slept and every evening if they had a good day.

When those who attend a local school come back home I ask them how it all was, help them with their homework...I want them to be happy. Sometimes however I noticed that many of them, even after being here for weeks, don't ever ask me once whether I had a good day, or a simple how are you.

I know it's a bit silly but it does make me sad. Most don't realise probably. Many are very young. And...I am a little over sensitive. These past two weeks I lost yet again two people I loved dearly. But it's not the first time and I felt I'd share it with you. I won't stop being kind to my guests and students, of course, but my heart does long for love just like anyone's.

I do remember one young lady who once after my daily question over breakfast replied "and how are 'YOU' this morning?" I was so happy :-)

Thank you for being there

I am sure that they do love and care for you in return, but unfortunately don't always know how to show it. Thank you for sharing your feelings here and the reminder that every one needs to hear and feel that they are loved and cared for. And about.

Please continue with your dear kindnesses even though others don’t always respond like you would hope. Your goodness goes out into the world every day and touches so many. Bless. 🙏
