    I was at WalMart Neighborhood Market one day

    trying to grab a few things and was standing in line at the self checkout line. The guy in front me was having a problem. He apologized and said that he had forgotten his wallet and was getting ready to leave his stuff and come back with money. He was on his lunch break. Since...

    Lined up at the queue,

    waiting for my turn to pay. At the neighbouring cashpoint, I notice a group moving together in unison: a thin woman of about 30, two young children clinging to her dress and a young girl of about 16. They were speaking a language I couldn't identify. I observed them as the young...

    I tried to perform a random act of kindness

    and give $20 and a Pop Tart (don't laugh, it was all I had lol) to what I thought was a homeless man sitting on the sidewalk. But the person was actually some middle aged business man with a really ugly coat who was kneeling on the ground picking up his business cards he had...

    I Just Couldn't Walk By

    I was still in a very fragile state of depression when this happened, but it still makes me sad to think about it. I had just driven my youngest son to his hockey game and since we had to be there an hour before  his game started, I decided that I had enough time to go...

    the woman in front of me had difficulty with her credit card. she was on empty and had no cash. I never met her before, but I could tell it was a tense situation. while she stepped away from the counter to talk to her husband on the phone and in tears I dropped thirty dollars...

    A dear sweet, young girl I met at a local

    social meeting, won my affection! She reminded me of myself, but almost twenty years younger. The more I got to know her the more I listened to the trials going on in her life. One day as I was grocery shopping, I heard a little voice in my head that reminded me of this sweet...

    Tips At Pizza Hut

    Well the other day I was with my brother at Pizza Hut and we had a pretty good waiter . She was nice and very attentive to our drinks. My total came out to about 12 dollars since my brother and I only at one pizza. She kindly took my credit card and kind of have a frown because...

    I love helping everyone no matter what the

    circumstance, one day I saw a guy standing out on the corner and he said he was hungry so I went to mcdonalds and bought him a meal and gave him $20 for later. He then walked around the corner and I saw 4 kids he gave them the food.

    I am a very kind soul

    and love to perform acts of kindness toward and for others. I enjoy helping others in life. When someone helps others they will be well rewarded when they need help too. What goes around comes around they say. I totally believe that philosophy.

    I give back when I can.

    I donate money to all kinds of charities (they usually pertain to animal welfare or the environment). I have volunteered in the past at my local VA Hospital. It was one of the most rewarding experiences. I engaged with a lot of veterans, played cards with them, made them laugh...

    I had a sweet and very simple experience today!

    I was at a pedestrian stoplight and made eye contact with a very stern, rude looking woman! It looked like she was glaring at me but I ignored that fact and instinctively smiled at her just because this is what I naturally do when I make eye contact. Anyhow after we crossed...

    I really do these a lot.

    You never know what a person is going through, and that one compliment, or just a smile can make a persons day so much brighter. So please make sure your nice, even if you dislike someone.

    Every Act Of Kindness Counts!

    There are probably many people out there who share the regret of not having enough time - or not putting enough time in to volunteerism. There are also those who never even stop to think about it - who don't hold a door for the person behind them - or help an elderly person load...

    With all the (somewhat earned) negativity

    towards police officers it's easy to forget there are some really good ones out there just trying to do their job. I met some very sweet ones the other night just opening the door for them, then bought my pack of cigarettes and handed the cashier a $20 and said "get them...

    This kid (23 years old) came into my practice

    one day with an infection. His parents are drug addicts so he was the primary care giver of four younger siblings. Essentially this kid had four kids at age 23! Not fair right? He wasn't angry about it. He was happy to handle the siblings and from what I saw in the kids...

    A man approached me at the bus stop downtown

    yesterday. Obviously homeless, and he bummed a cigarette from me. We ended up talking for a few minutes, and I gave him my pack of cigarettes as I was going into work to collect my paycheck. I really hope I made that person's day.

    The Coupon Lady

    At a place I worked in till a few months ago, there was a coworker I'd notice at lunch time or break times, she was always poring through magazines and newspapers, clipping out coupons. She wasn't someone who talked much to me, but I took note of it, kind of thinking "I ought to...

    So there's a guy in my local town

    who sleeps on the street and I feel so sorry for him. He is always begging and looks so helpless! Today, as it was raining, I bought him an umbrella that I never use, a blanket that I don't need really and I got him a McDonald's Big Mac meal with a hot chocolate once in town...

    for coffee with my friends, often I see a homeless guy in a tunnel we walk through, I buy him some food and a cup of coffee. I wonder what his story is. I hope he finds somewhere before the weather gets cold.
