Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Cheerful Givers…..

❤️ Feeling blessed by the great field of love that surrounds us all…..

Now that our kind neighbor has taken to bringing over her homemade foods to us every Friday evening, instead of every once in a while as she used to do, I enjoy finding a little something I know she will like/enjoy each week to gift to her when she visits.

Sometimes I give her something of mine that I feel she’d appreciate…or I order something for her that we had spoken about that I knew she wanted. This Friday I was able to give her something I saw on the Fresh Direct website that was perfect for her & her family.

Receiving is progress for our beautiful neighbor, for although a generous giver, receiving was difficult for her in the past. We had a few conversations in the past where I shared how receiving was a kindness act for the giver. Slowly it has become easy for her to allow her kindness to others to be returned to her.

I enjoy her leisurely sit down chats that take place on these Fridays when she comes bearing delicious full course dinners. She likes to try out different recipes and I always send her rave reviews the next day with a gratitude graphic. What an adorable a person she is. She started emailing me the menu the night before, telling us what she planned on making…it always makes me smile when I see it in my email and I send her back a “big yum 😋 “, or a “can’t wait 😘”

We both marvel at her generosity and feel blessed 🙏
