Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Just A Visit

--by Ranger2, posted May 22, 2007

We live in a retirement complex here in Adelaide. 

My daughter and I went to visit the couple who live across the road from us. The woman has recently returned from hospital after having a stroke and she was excited to see my daughter.  We spent  a long time with them just talking and laughing.

Our visit really bought a smile to her face.

I really enjoyed making this couples day by spending some quality time with them.

We spent several hours there and I had her laughing...telling stories and jokes and when I left I gave her a big BEAR hug and a kiss. I suggested we go and visit her again later than week and then I was flying back home...I forgot all about it til my Mom's friend emailed me and thanked me for visiting her Mom whom she said has little company and how much my visits meant to them both....such a simple thing...I will do it again and am not inspired to visit a local nursing home and make a new friend there as well.
