Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Passing on the Smiles

--by Samson95, posted Feb 17, 2007

I have been getting packs of smile cards in the mail, usually a few a week. My daughter who is 10 asked me about them the other day.  I explained what they were for, and what to do with them.

She is going to drop her first smile card tomorrow to one of her favorite teachers.  She is going to write a letter of appreciation to this teacher, and attach a smile card to the letter, and place it in her mail box.  I am going to write the letter for her, so the teacher doesn't recognize her handwriting. Just think of the smile that will come from her letter :)

Anonymous acts of kindness is a great thing, I practice it a lot. However in my small space I am finding out, knowing who cares means a lot to many people. It is only human to want another human to toutch you, I don't think anyone of will ever get out of being human. For me it does make a difference to know that I as a individual I do make a difference, however small that differece may be, I am grateful the shelfish me does not show up everyday
