Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Extended Hand In Friendship Today.

--by bearwoman1501, posted Sep 26, 2015
Our neighbor has two sweet, formerly abused rescue dogs. For several days, I have been able to coax them to come near me by offering "doggie treats". Today they both took treats from my hand. I was happy that I was able to finally gain their trust. I occurs to me that there are people in my acquaintance
 who also seem fearful, distrusting and distant with me. I vowed today that I will not judge them, but will simply extend my hand and hope that they will trust my attempts at friendship.
