Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Halloween Kindness Received

Halloween is not the big event here that it is in some parts of the world, but I want to tell you about some Halloween kindnesses that we received yesterday.

My youngest son has been introduced to the idea of Halloween celebrations via the school (not something I applaud, but that's another story). Anyway, I had no plans to do anything special. However, he was banging on about Halloween to our farm volunteers and a wonderful American girl organised a scavenger hunt for him yesterday. He had clues that sent him all over the farm (minor panic when we thought the goats may have eaten one of the clues!) and culminated in some treats hidden in a bowl of garlic!

He also wanted to do a Halloween party, but we're lacking the space and the people to provide one. But we managed to clear a space on the patio where we could set up his little laptop and the wifi could reach so that he could treat us to his 'DJ'ing, he stuck up some pictures and made some dips and a desert and I called our spaghetti dinner worms with brain sauce. But the kindness was from our wonderful volunteer crew who honoured his wish and all put up with standing around in the dark and cold to be his guests. They willing flashed their headtorches for him to be a lightshow, they oohed and ahhed about his 'zombie snot' dip and they manfully waved the sparklers I produced.

I am SO grateful to these wonderful people who made his evening. They could have taken their meals and gone and eaten somewhere warm, but they hung out to make a little boy happy and that's worth more than anything to me.
