Stories of Kindness from Around the World


--by silver, posted Nov 18, 2006

My grandmother who used to be a social butterfly has gone back in her cacooon.  I think it is due to the fact that a lot of her friends have died over the last 4 years.  Her only existing friend also died 2 months ago.

She was extremely funny, charming and talkative.   Now she has grown quite and barely says anthing.  It's hard to keep a conversation going with her for more than 5 minutes as she mainly responds with "yes" or "no"

I called her this morning and mentioned about random acts of kindness at Yale.  She actually gave me a lot of ideas and talked to me for over 15 minutes.  It made my day and to some extent I am sure it made hers. 

She even cracked a joke - "So should I be watching out for a care-package from you?"  :-)
