The other day, a lady who had spent the night scared, trying to sleep in the park while watching out for predators, called me over to give me a hug. She said she felt I needed one. And you know what? I did. That hug went a long way for me that day. I really appreciated her kindness.
Being the recipient of another kindess caused me to reflect today how much it lifted my spirits and "lightened my load." It wasn't what one might consider a " big thing," didn't take the giver a lot of time, but for me it made a difference in my day. While planning on writing this blog, I read Brooklyn Born's blog on her giving away two heart monitors. She wasn't using them, didn't plan to, so she passed them on. Who knows what a difference this might make to someone else. I'm just betting it makes the day for the ones who receive them. And hence my title, " A little kindess can go a long way."
