Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Flowers in the Communal Hall

--by butterfly, posted Apr 22, 2007
I was thinking that it would be nice to put some flowers on the table in my communal hall in the block of flats where I live so when my neighbours get their post (mail) they will be able to see the flowers and maybe smile.

Recently, I was visiting a friend and she gave me a lovely bunch of daffodils she had brought from a neighbour's house.

Immediately, I put these on the table in my communal hallway thinking that the universe really does provide and how grateful I was.
