Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Precious Time


--by DANCE, posted Mar 27, 2023
My niece has left after 2 months of a beautiful and sometimes challenging stay with us in UK. She's a teenager, so you can imagine.... A very good heart and very smart but still lots to learn.

I'd like to believe I was kind to her, I looked after her, 'spoiled' her as much as I could but also tried to teach her to be and do good. I've also learned a lot from her, not only patience!

I'm so lucky to be able to create these memories with her so that she can cherish them as she grows up.We had lots of fun taking pictures. Below, by a beautiful lake in Italy, freezing day but glorious.

I gave her a parting gift to open on the plane: a beautiful journal in her favourite colour, pink, which says JUST BE KIND in the cover (forgot to take a picture). I wrote a long and loving letter for her to reflect on...She sent me a lovely thank you message 20 hours later when she arrived home after her flight.

Now ready to use more of that energy to continue to be kind to others...
Always happy to read your beautiful and inspiring stories, thank you all for being here
