Stories of Kindness from Around the World

πŸ“š Sharing Uplifting Books To Hospital ShelfπŸ’•

“Looks like you found some good books,” Jessie, the library director observed, as she was about to total the sale.

“I do enjoy your book sale room,” I replied, "and I’m donating these to the hospital’s free shelf, so I tried to choose books with a positive and uplifting message.”

Jesse put her hands on the stack of books, looked up at me and said, “Mindy, please just take these books, with our appreciation, no charge.”

That’s the beautiful thing about kindness and knowledge, the more you give, the more you inspire and encourage, the more it ripples out in such lovely ways! πŸ“š

I am a firm believer of kindness once shared does became a ripple many others participate and enjoy. Giving is so much more rewarding than receiving.

Hospital patients will definitely appreciate the books being donated to them.
