Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Act Quickly on Good Intentions


--by writingmomma, posted Apr 12, 2007
Last week I was asked to go open the church for one of our members. It was a good warm day, so I decided to walk. 

On the way home I had to pass the home of a neighbor that I knew was in the last stage of cancer. I decided to stop and see how the family was doing.

That was on Monday. Friday the neighbor passed away. That made me realize how important it is to act upon those good intentions we have in our hearts.

You have inspired me to reach past my comfort level, past the fear of intruding or feeling awkward & inadequate, for the blessings that lie beyond! Thank You!
