Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Close Friends

--by kiwicat, posted Sep 12, 2015
I arrived at my best friend's house last night (she's got three kids: 2, 4, and 7 years old) and as soon as she opened the door, she said, "Beware the apocalypse has struck." I thought to myself, "My goodness..."

So, I poured two glasses of wine and we started cleaning. It would have been overwhelming for her to do it alone, but together we conquered the mess.

After we cleaned, we started cooking. I had brought ingredients to make her dinner, and cooked it for her then and there. Together, we then made a risotto for her friend who just had a baby. It was a great evening!
