Even Small Kindness Is Never Forgotten
--by Zevelina, posted Mar 5, 2011
I came across HelpOthers few days ago and I can`t stop reading the stories. I want to thank you all for sharing joy around the world and writing about it.
Ever since I was a kid I've believed that a smile is a cure and that kindness spreads around like a (wonderful) virus.
I`m glad to see how many stories of miraculous acts you all have written. I shared some of my favorite to my mom an hour ago. She was a bit down and I wanted to put a smile on her beautiful face and remind her that people can surprise you in a very pleasant way.
After hearing some of the stories from HelpOthers she told me one herself that happened 30 years ago. She was just a teenager on a vacation on the Adriatic coast with her two best friends (they are still her best friends). They were having coffee and ice cream in a local café when an older soldier came up to them telling them he would like to pay their tab. A bit unsure of his motive they hesitated at first. He told them he has a sister their age and just felted an urge to do something nice for them.
I`m writing this for all of you doing things like this so that you realise the effects of your acts of kindness. My mother experienced a small random act of kindness more than 30 years ago and still remembers that with so much warmth!
I hope this will be one more reminder that when you do something nice – you ARE making a difference. Thank you on behalf of all the people you've made smile!
It might be the only sunshine he/she
May see all day!
Spread your smiles and make someone happy! *~*
These stories can be shared with all and give us b'ful time of togetherness.
Thanks for sharing.
