Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Above and Beyond

--by myfbil, posted Feb 26, 2020
I read that somebody needed  minor help to get her heating furnace running. She lived in a poorer section of the town in a mobile home park.

In order to help her, I asked my husband if he could do the repair. I knew he had done this in the past for our furnace. He accepted and went to the next town over, fixed the furnace and took no money for doing so.

She had been without heat for two days in a below freezing weather! I was very happy that I read her message and could arrange for my husband to help her out.

Thank you so very much for your kind words. My husband is a real blessing! I try not to "put him on the spot" but i do occasionally ask him if he will help out with something and he is usually very accommodating.
SD wrote: You and your husband exemplified the essence of random acts of kindness. You saw the opportunity and most likely influenced your husband's decision to help. Be grateful he had the skill to make the repair, and not the attitude that you shouldn't volunteer his services (i've known some husbands who complain about that). Blessings to the elderly lady in need, and to both you and your husband - kindness spreads god's love.
