Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Welcoming Neighbors


--by petroskryf, posted Aug 20, 2020
Since we moved to our new home a week ago (we rented one for more than 7 years, and it was time to buy our own house...our last address as we call it) I have been busy unpacking boxes the last few days.

It’s exhausting, but also rewarding to stand back and see how a new home opens her arms to you. How everything eventually finds a place to “live,” a corner to exist in. We also experienced kindness from some neighbors in our complex.

I was overwhelmed by a bunch of flowers and a lovely plant for the house that some of the people gifted us. And then there was the plate of muffins appearing on our doorstep. People are so thoughtful!

Most ordinary people care about others. Most ordinary people are kind.

May sunshine and happiness always flow into your New Home.

May your home always be too small to hold all of your friends.

May happiness knock early at your door, stay late, and leave the gift of good fortune.

Wishing you all the best in your new home.
