Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Thank You For Your Thank You

--by pluto178, posted May 31, 2012

This morning I received a beautiful hand-made card in the post. The envelope was marked "Thank you!" and I didn't open it immediately whilst I tried to work out who it had come from. Who could be saying thanks to me?  

Happily I had a few choices. When I opened it I discovered it was from a lady I had sent a free gift to on eBay. 
She was completely overwhelmed by this random act of kindness from a stranger and has since joined the HelpOthers family.
She had made the card especially for me with pink butterflies on the front. It was lovely! The thing that surprised me the most was that she actually used the words "I love you" to me. How wonderful to be such a positive spirit as to love so freely . Most of us are very cautious when using those three words.  
I hope she enjoys the stories she finds on HelpOthers and I am sure she will be finding new ways to spread love and kindness too.
Thank you for sending me your love, which I know will lift my whole day!

ziva wrote: Wonderful story! I love your take on saying those words. Saying "i love you" is just like all the wonderful acts of kindness that mean so much to us and we try to pass on. If we hold ourselves back or hesitate -the chance is often gone and all the joy we feel and want to share is stopped. Ziva
