One of my mottoes is to always remember the kindness of others and I have often spoken about it to my family.

Saturday: I had to post a large envelope with a statutory declaration in it, and decided to drop into our local post office. The postmistress often has a quick chat and is a lovely lady. Saturday morning was no exception!

She mentioned seeing me dropping off a young relative to school in the mornings and said that her son had been his buddy and mentor when he first started kindergarten. It was wonderful learning that we had this connection.

She asked me if I dropped him every day. I then told her that I did as his mother was quite ill and couldn’t do it and had not been able to do it for over a year. On learning about the illness, she offered to make a meal or two for their family. I was so touched and grateful at this unexpected offer.

Imagine this folks, I only know this lady when I visit the post office and here she was, offering to make a meal for my relatives. This generous gesture just made my day and moved me so much. I will always remember her kindness.


Sunday: It was a busy day but just on midday, I received an unexpected phone call from a family member who lived an hour and a half away from us. She is an absolute delight and rang to say she wanted to drop in with her baby son and toddler. It can usually be months before we see each other so this was a wonderful surprise.

This family member is a ray of sunshine, is bubbly and has an infectious laugh. Needless to say, the two hour visit went much too quickly.

We have to give thanks for the people who bring much joy into our lives.

  2. Great post. I really have to be better with keeping up with family and friends. Time goes by so quickly. By the way, why are you teasing me with that good looking dish up there? Making me so hungry

    • Gosh Scott – you actually commented for a change! You’ve made my day! Yes, that dish does look tempting. I make a great ‘shepherd’s pie’ and it look like that. I’ll make one next week. Thanks for commenting Scott.

  5. I’ve received the kindness of strangers often, all someone has to do is complement me; “I love your outfit”, “Just seeing you walk by me made me happy”, “I don’t know you but I want you to know, you made me smile today”. ~~dru~~
