An act of kindness

The right words can make such a difference.

A kind thought can mean so much.

I ran across this wonderful little video over on the i want ice water blog and i just had to share it with you all.

  1. Doesn’t kindness REALLY make your temperature change.

    I heard a story on the radio yesterday. A couple were here (Wellington) to watch a Rugby World Cup match, and had booked a hotel in Eastbourne. They drove around for hours searching for it. Finally they stopped and approached a woman for help. She read their documents and horrified them with her reply.
    “I’m sorry,” she said. “It appears you have booked a hotel room in Eastbourne in England.”
    Of course Wellington was full – like Bethlehem for Joseph and Mary.
    So this woman took them home. She provided accomodation for two days, took them to and from the rugby with her friends .

    I warmed as I listened to this random, generous act of kindness. I was proud to be a Kiwi. And I wondered why it happens so rarely that we extend kindess to others as the norm…

    • The lady really put herself out with her kindness, very few people would do the likes of that.
      I remember years ago, if people on the road side were looking for a lift in a car there was no problem, to-day it is a big problem, people are affraid to do it

  2. So perhaps life is not always a bitch-)

  3. Yes the right words can definitely make a difference, something I need to remind myself now and then

  8. That is strange. Can you not get to my profile picture? There is a link on there.

    I don’t know what else to suggest. There doesn’t seem to be a problem with anyone else. Please keep in touch. Maybe we can sort it out.
