Tag Archives: random act of kindness

quote_the real things are simple_laura ingalls wilder


This video will lift your spirits, make you tear up (especially if you are an empathetic person), and restore your faith in humanity.  It is hard to simplify the concept of Empathy in its broadest sense, but this video will fill your heart and spirit with gladness and a desire to help another.  There are battles that we each face, and most of us do it alone, or struggle in silence.  As you watch this video, and see the faces of the recipients of this kind of compassion and charity towards others, you will see how starved for compassion and a helping hand during daily struggles.  Challenges can cause mental and physical health symptoms, but kindness and empathy create such powerful healing.

Simply acknowledging our humanity, and restoring our faith in the inherent goodness of some people, gives us the strength to keep going when we have witnessed or felt pain.  It is a blessing to know that such people exist and seek opportunities to do good for others and the inspiration to pay it forward.



Thank you for stopping by.  I hope that you enjoy this and share with a friend who needs a lift too.





Sometimes, we need some inspiration and an unexpected act of kindness brought me the sunlight that I was missing on a gloomy day.

I left my office for a quick walk around the building. I brought my phone with me, trying to keep my eyes open, like Lisa at seeking a view with a new perspective for me. While some daffodil shoots have sprung up in the February climate confusion, I still couldn’t find the boost that I needed.

When I came back into the office building, a florist was replacing the plants in the front lobby and adding new blooms. I stopped to look and said “Hello. I need some inspiration on a gloomy day.” This kind and patient man said to me “The sunshine needs to be in your heart.” Then he lifted a plant of pink blossoms out of his box and asked if I wanted it.

I hesitated, as my eyes tried to soak up all the budding Springtime in that plastic container. Then, being as courteous as I was raised, I replied “Thank you, but you can’t do that.”

‘I just did’ he said. He put plastic around the plant that was wet and muddy from watering and handed it to me for safekeeping.

How can kindness fail to touch the heart? I was in need of an attitude attunement, and after earlier frustration with someone else’s apathy, it was so nice to see and receive the light of a stranger’s caring.

Hopefully, both the plant and I will continue to grow well over time with strong roots.



Thank you for stopping by!  I hope that you enjoy your visit.
