Acts of Kindness – Connecting With Others!

Today for “Acts of Kindness” I’d like to share a recent post by a fellow blogger and a motivational video.

The post, written by a very caring individual, was first read by my friend Ute of Ute’s Smile (she defines loving with her posts) who then shared it with me and suggested I pass it along to you – so I shall!

Russ from A Grateful Man posted the following experience a few days ago on his blog, thank you Russ!

“My Beloved and I were out on the town with some other couples when an elderly woman who appeared quite down on her luck and perhaps homeless walked up to our group and asked if we were going in a specific direction. We said we were. She asked if we could perhaps give a lift to her because she had someplace important to be and had no car or money.

As we had driven together, the owner of the car said, “Sorry, our car is too small and we can’t help you.” Then he walked away.

When no one was looking, another member of our group took some money from his wallet and dropped it on the ground. He then bent down to pick it up and handed it to the elderly lady. As he did so, he said, “I think you may have dropped this ma’am. It should be enough to hire a taxi to take you to where you want to go.”

The elderly woman’s eyes misted over with happiness and surprise as she took the money. She gave a knowing and grateful look to him as she thanked him.

I’ll never forget the feeling I had when I saw the look in the woman’s eyes.

Those eyes reminded me once again how small kindnesses can make huge differences in the lives of others, and it brightened my evening and lifted my spirit to experience it.”

Russ’s words are a potent reminder. Thank you Russ!

Another talented and caring friend, Michael of Morpethroad, recently shared a video with me, my special thanks. Some thoughts here to think on. Why our acts of kindness are more important than ever today!

Let daily “acts of kindness” be contagious in your own life! Become interconnected. Pay it forward! The rewards are awesome!

Thanks for the visit, have an excellent week ahead my friends!

  1. Wonderful post, Penny, and like the others, it’s good to know kind people are around in the midst of all the horrible happenings in our world…hope you are well, my friend! I’m very behind in reading again! 🙂 Hugs!

  2. Wonderful post Penny. It is so gratifying to know there are so many kind folks in the world. It is easy to forget sometimes when we are bombarded with so much negativity in the news.

  3. Reblogged this on A Grateful Man and commented:
    You’ve already seen the first part of Penny’s post. It is the second part that I wanted to share with you. I love the video. There are so many great messages and it encapsulates many of my beliefs and the reasons behind them. One of my favorite comments (among many in the clip): “…the edge of your courage but not past it.”
    With Love,
    Russ
