Yet, each day we would benefit from some one's act of kindness - a teddy bear for the 5 year old. A hospital took up clothes donations for us and I still have and use a beautiful handmade quilt. Once a box of clothes that had one pair of pants all 4 of us could fit in at once! We did, and boy did we laugh and have fun. Having been recipient of random acts of kindness, both my hubby and I have continued to try to pass that kindness on. Sometimes in smiles, sometimes simply passing items on. My children are all grown now and we are grandparents. Had our youngest and his family living with us for awhile. Now, they moved out of state. And, I had a nursery full of toys. One day I packed them up and gave half of them to our neighbor boy who we really don't know as the parents are young and both work. They were so surprised and actually offered money, which I immediately dismissed. They were grandma house toys and needed a child! The other half we took to another grandchild who lives within the same state that we actually seldom see. Now, I have two little 2 yr olds that give me big smiles whenever they see me *that *it makes my heart smile! So please do give, from the heart. Whether a smile or something you no longer need -- the acts of kindness makes both the recipient and the giver feel good!
