Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Greeting Each Mile


--by mindyjourney, posted Nov 8, 2022

Grateful that today’s drive of 600 plus miles went well. Rain off and on, light traffic and so much beautiful fall color! Tomorrow - about 500 miles….

Lots of kindness opportunities:

๐Ÿถ Gave St. Francis prayer card to dog owner (today was St. Francis’ feast day - patron of animals), by the Dignity statue at rest area on the Missouri River, inChamberlain,SD.

๐Ÿ˜Š Left a “trail” of Rajni quote cards and some made-as-we-journeyed positive travel themed post-its to share at various comfort stations.

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ ๐Ÿ•Š On a whim, stopped to view the Jolly Green Giant statue in Blue Earth, MN, which has gotten quite the upgrade over the years, and met a Ukrainian family being fostered by the kind woman who offered to take our photo with the Giant.

Gave them some Ukrainian Peace Doves, that luckily I had with me! We shared hugs and blessings.

Then slipped the woman who was fostering the family some cash for them to get an ice-cream at the nearby Dairy Queen.

๐ŸŒŽ Such a kind world, my friends, when we greet each mile with gratitude and connection.
