Moving is hard and I had to move on Monday of this week! Fortunately, I have an amazing job with an employer who is very compassionate and allowed me to take the next day off to at least get a running start at getting settled. In the midst of unpacking I received a text from a very dear friend, who now lives mere moments away, informing me that she had about an hour free and wanted to come over to help and bring lunch. I deeply appreciated this. It was just so kind and thoughtful. An hour may not be much time, but it truly held a significant impact. She helped me to complete a task that may have taken me hours and I had a meal to enjoy later! I think these are the simple acts of kindness that matter most. It doesn't take much to make someone's life just a little bit easier!

Reflecting on the kindness of others inspires me to be that to others. December is a very busy time in my life and family and a long time friend kept saying she wanted to do something to help. One day she texted and said she was bringing over a roast beef meal for the family. I felt overwhelmed and touched by her generosity, knowing there are others she could have blessed in this way but she wanted to bless me.

Hi. When my debit card malfunctioned when trying to buy my London today, a lovely woman named Shauna reached over to buy it for me. I was so grateful but told I had no cash to repay her. She said I know and smiled at me. How lovely. What a kind and also interesting person. She is a doctor working in a clinic close to me. Thank you Shauna.

I have tried to write this multiple times. The truth is I realize I have been surrounded by acts of kindness. one of the most practical has been people who have chosen to support my business/work both through active use of my business AND by recommending me to others. I realize that these people don’t have to do this but their choice to do so has been a HUGE blessing in my life. I am so grateful for them.

It's funny how acts of kindness are stamped in our minds, they can even make us think differently about the world and humanity. Very recently while driving on the highway I had a tire gauge pressure alert. Tire pressure isn't a tricky detail nor is checking pressure & refilling with air an issue for me, but admittedly it was a very cold evening, and I was concerned that the issue would be worse than it turned out. I pulled over at the next gas station to check pressure and within just a few minutes of me pulling over to check pressure, a young man walked up, inquired to see if he could be of any help. He encouraged me to get back into the car while he checked the tires and filled them all. We had very little interaction but what he did say after thanking him for being thoughtful was “I just would want someone to reach out and try to help my wife or my sister”. Something so small really, but really was impactful that he would take time to make sure that I was ok, and to extend a kind gesture to a stranger.
