The Kindness Chronicles #2

 

Acts of kindness bestowed upon me:

1. The numerous status updates I had on Facebook and in person wishing me a happy birthday..

2. My supervisor being incredibly understanding and helpful when I struggle with the financial aspects of my job such as purchasing, invoices, purchase requisitions, etc. (I just don’t get it!).

3. The beautiful and inspirational words of friends/colleagues who wrote letters of recommendation for me.

4. My wonderful partner bringing dinner to me and other girls at the hair salon. It was a long night! (cut, color, etc.)

5. My parents came to listen to me read to the public a short story that I wrote. Talk about nervous!

 

Acts of kindness that I bestowed on others:

1. Bought my supervisor a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee when the cafeteria was out of coffee at work.

2. Helped a woman who got lost in the hospital trying to locate the appointment desk.

3. A listening ear to my co-workers who stop by my office to “vent.” (I think I’m part counselor at this job.)

4. This isn’t one that I did, but I observed as a friend and I sat on a bench to watch the people on Main Street Downtown. It really moved me. An older man, shabbily dressed in a lightweight coat and yellow knit hat, was sitting outside in the cold night at a cafe table by himself. He was reading from a book, out loud, and following along with his finger. He struggled with the words, but he kept persevering. Two young women who were standing behind me saw him and I heard them debating back and forth. Finally, they crossed the street and bought him a cup of coffee and something to eat from the coffee shop. He was incredibly grateful. If only we all were so kind to strangers. You never know who needs a warm, welcoming hand.
