Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Food, Friends, and Visiting


--by Mish, posted Jun 21, 2022
We were invited to dinner at a friend’s home. Our contribution to the soon-to-be delicious meal was a bottle of wine & a cinnamon babka. They are generous, gracious hosts & the chef loves to try different recipes & takes pride in her presentation of the table.

While there I went upstairs to their 97 year old mother’s apartment to visit her. It’s not often an easy visit as she has some dementia & tells me the same stories each time I visit, but I listen to her as if it’s the first time I’m hearing her story. I try to cheer her up a bit when she goes to a sad place. Most times I can get her to smile, or even to laugh. ❤️

It was a relaxing evening with old friends who live nearby. Grateful. 🙏
