    Yesterday while I was getting gas at the local

    station. A fellow came over and asked if he could borrow some gas money. His credit card was declined. He had no cash. His car was on empty. He was on his way home from work. I gave him ten dollars. He asked if he could mail the money back to me. I told him to pass it on the...

    The other day, I overheard a conversation about

    the small kiosk at the corner having to shut down. So as I was heading to work this morning, I stopped to speak to the tenant, who had often helped me out by letting me leave my keys there to be picked up in the afternoon. He told me that his business had been going bad for a...

    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...

    I let a spider live instead of murdering it,

    I give someone I care for my last, I compliment someone that looks like they need it, I help an old woman with groceries, I fix something messed up in a store... Someone has to generate happiness because it doesn't generate itself.

    for the 60 Days of Kindness Challenge and posted this story there. I thought I would post it here too though and challenge others to do it with me! Whether you want to focus on performing one act of kindness each day or do like me, it's fine. I would just love to hear all of...

    I'm continually experiencing the harsher

    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...

    person who had a flat. he had no money and didn't know what to do. even his spare was garbage. so I hooked him up and towed him to a tire shop. bought him a used tire. I hope he pays it forward one day. if we all help each other. life will be so much better.

    The worth of a person is not in what they own

    or how much they make, yet in how much they give without need for anything in return.

    and I noticed this homeless man. It was very windy out and getting darker. With hardly a penny to my name, I didn't have anything to give him. So I made my husband park the car, so I could run to the trunk and get the warmest blanket I own. I ran it to the man and he looked me...
