Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Smiles from the Hospital to Fabric Store

The other day, I had a magnificent experience of giving and receiving!

It had come to my attention that a lady was going into hospital for an extended period of time.  The hospital had provided her with a list of clothing items needed to participate in the rehab program for her recovery. Because she lived on a very limited income, she didn't know how she would afford the required clothes.  I had extra almost-new clothing that were her size, so I packed up the freshly washed clothing, added several toiletries and an angel pin, and delivered them to her.  When I presented care package to her, she was completely caught off guard. :) Hopefully the extra clothes will make her recovery a bit easier and less stressful!

That same day, I had inquired about a bolt of fabric for sale and made arrangements to pick it up.  When I went the fabric store, the woman who owned the store spontaneously decided to give me the bolt of fabric for free. Now I was the one who was completely caught off guard!  One of her family members then offered to drive me to get the fabric, and her husband even carried the heavy roll of fabric out to the car for me!

Not only had I originally expected to pay for the fabric, but I had also planned to take a long bus ride to get it and carry it home.  I was so surprised to have suddenly received such a generous gestures from not just the store owner, but also her husband and her relative.
I guess what goes around really does come around!
