Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Big Ripples

--by woodfields, posted Jul 20, 2014
The parcel I sent to my friend, arrived at her home, yesterday. Here is what she said: "Thank you Ruth, you brought tears to my eyes! You're such a kind and loving lady ♥♥♥" and then "When you know that someone still actually cares and thinks of you, it makes the day more bearable".

I really only sent a tiny gift, a little necklace I made and a pack of popping candy. Teeny things have big ripples... I'm slowly learning that the teeny things matter.

Today, I helped a friend with her schoolwork for several hours and didn't have much time for anything else. I sent a message via Facebook to a friend to tell her that I think she's amazing. It is enough.

Tomorrow I'm delivering a present to another friend! I'm very excited!
