I was delighted to be nominated by
Mws R the creator of Mws R Writings for the Random Acts Of Kindness Award as you can see in her post below:
I have loved this award ever since I first saw it and have loved reading the posts from other bloggers in response to their nominations.
As with many awards there are a few rules:
- Copy or paste image for reward on your post.
- Write a paragraph on a random act of kindness, either you saw, was given to you, or you have done. It is okay to spread the love people. You don’t have to name specific names or what events but tell us about it.
- Share this award and link to original post or tag the person who nominated you.
- If you should want to do this then you can leave an open ended invitation, or personally tag others.
- Pictures are a good share to, if you have pictures to share a random act of kindness, that is great!
Ooooooh…I have had to give a lot of though to this because I have witnessed so many acts of kindness over the years, many of them were random ones at that.
I have to say I love kindness…what would life be without kindness???
I have been the recipient of kindness from other people over and over, including many other bloggers. I see acts of kindness every single day. I guess I also see acts of unkindness too. But I hope more and more that kindness wins out and we can all seize every opportunity that passes to be kind to someone.
When my blog was quite new I published a post about a journey across the country…and right at the end I related a little opportunity I had and grabbed to perform a random act of kindness:
Then came another shorter train journey to my final destination. On the local little train there was an older lady, she was probably well into her eighties. She was wrapped up well, but had no gloves and as I chatted with her I saw her rubbing and blowing into her red hands. Well, co-incidentally….I had forgotten my own gloves when I had left the house. When I was at the station waiting for the train and noticed how bitterly cold it was, I bought some gloves. Only, the only pair I liked had a second pair attached. Two pairs for the price of one. So I pulled the brand new gloves out of my bag and handed them to her. She was so pleased. She seemed to be crying tears of joy. It was lovely to end my journey chatting with a sweet gentle soul after all of the other trials of dealing with challenging passengers during my epic day on the British Rail Network.
I love having a little opportunity to be kind. Being kind is a wonderful way to achieve instant happiness. Whether you are on the bus, or train, or any other mode of transport, please be kind, be considerate, be patient and be lovely. Try not to harass or offend your fellow passengers. Kindness is and always will be one of the most beautiful qualities to possess.
Now I nominate…
