Stories of Kindness from Around the World

πŸ• Our Kind Of Camping


--by mindyjourney, posted Sep 30, 2022

Since our cabin hOMe is remote, we camp to meet people, experience new things and enjoy a change of place.

In that vein, this last camping excursion graced us with many opportunities to kindly connect.

πŸ•Š Gave flocks of Peace Doves to volunteers at the fish hatchery, clerks, fellow campers, ranger at Devil’s Tower Monument, folks enjoying Kool Deadwood Nights - even one woman who recollected receiving a Dove years ago in a Christmas card from a friend in MN. (Love when the Doves give me a karmic hello like that!)

πŸͺ Gifted restaurant baked cookies to campground office worker along with a Smile card.

πŸ”₯ Camp neighbors invited us over to share their campfire, exchange stories and addresses.

πŸ“š Filled 3 Free Little Libraries in the area with books brought from home, plus added a container of chalk and a child’s cup (from the basket won last month) to a Let’s Play Library.

🐠 Feed for fish at the hatchery to a family whose small child had so much fun feeding the hatchlings!

🌹 Was graciously gifted 2 yellow roses by a passerby in town, who said, “Yellow roses are for friendship. My friend gave me a bunch, so I’m sharing.” Kept one and gave the other to our waitress. *Wonder if all those anniversary roses we give are beginning to return to us? :)

🌧 And to top it all off, there was over 3 inches of rain in our rain gauge when we got hOMe! So needed and appreciated.

Grateful for each and every connection, our cozy camper and the chance to catch up before leaving on another camping trip next week!
