Hi guys, trying to start a fun/happy thread topic here if I can. They say the eyes are the windows of the soul. They do witness a lot! I think
kindness is food for the soul! It is always a good thing to "feed" the soul with good works and deeds,
The other day, I brought a bowl of chicken
soup and some fresh baked rolls to an ailing neighbor lady. She seemed thrilled beyond measure! I was happy to do it as I once saw this lovely woman
when she was feeling well, pick a bouquet of pretty, fresh flowers from her garden and give them to a little neighborhood girl who always was admiring
the garden. That lil girl ran home so excited. Two weeks later, I saw the little girl rescue a tiny, scared kitten and she has cared for it to this
day. Random acts of kindness and "paying it forward". I love that!!
I bought a brown couch once but didn't care for it and offered it to a young, struggling military couple that didn't have much. When they saw the
like new brown velvet coach, they literally jumped for joy. Fickle me wanted a sectional yet I was happy I seemed to make them happy too.
One time, I was shopping and a fireman was getting a cart and I was near the flower concession. I mentioned how pretty only one rose can be sometimes
and have more impact. Later, on my way to my car, the young fellow approached me with a rose and wished me a good day and walked on....wow!
Another time, a lady at a check out line ran outta money and started to put things back, the gentleman behind her said no and paid for the rest of her
purchases, She and her 2 kids had tears in their eyes...so did I.
Husband and I watch the birds from our porch and we have seen folks be very kind at times. It warms the heart and feeds the soul. I hope others here
have nice stories to share relevant to such things. I thought it would be a happy kinda topic for a change and who knows...it may give some folks
ideas of how to pay a kindness forward and make someones day. I hope so!
