I am no stranger to the kindness of strangers. Kindness never goes out of style.

It’s been important for me to pass on the kindness to someone else – stranger or friend. Kindness doesn’t have to be a huge undertaking. It can be a small task. Kindness doesn’t have to cost much money. Actually, it is free to be kind to other people.

Once, there was a woman with an infant behind me in the grocery line. Her grocery cart was packed to the top and a little beyond. There wasn’t anyone to help her unpack so I took a few minutes to do it. It didn’t cost me anything but time.When my kids were small, I was always thankful to have someone help me at the grocery store. It’s the small things that matter the most sometimes.

This is a link to a post about a stranger showing kindness to me when I really needed it.

Kindness of Strangers

“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.

    That was and is an excellent show of kindness, Hollie. Grocery store lines can be very stressful for people of all ages when faced alone.

        Perfect time of year to get away from Syracuse for a long weekend, too, after a big winter! She is a good woman. I am a lucky hubby.

  2. I agree completely. I had 3 under 4 and was a wreck constantly needing help. Now I have 2 in school and ‘only’ one with me I can be the one giving the help and I do as often as possible.

      WOW! That is a lot to handle. 🙂 It’s good that you can pay it forward!

  3. I paid for a lady’s dog food as she was a few dollars short.
    I try to compliment one stanger a day in the hope others will smile. Small things make big differences to people’s lives
