Stories of Kindness from Around the World

There are Always Blessings

--by Mish, posted Sep 4, 2021
I was asked to accompany someone when they went to their doctor for an annual wellness visit. They didn’t want to go alone. Sitting in a doctor’s waiting room is not something I really am comfortable about right now, during the current covid variants, but I wanted to be supportive, so I went.

It was a long wait. The seats were spaced out & everyone wore a face mask 😷

I got a lot of reading done & when I began to get fidgety I closed my eyes, did some deep breathing & silently mantra’d. I reached for my companion’s hand when he appeared nervous & encouraged him to do the same.

We rewarded ourselves with a leisurely lunch after.

So, the blessings that were found there included getting a lot of reading done, comforting someone, meditating, shining light on everyone in the waiting room & a nice lunch. Always blessings to be found.
