2013 Acts of Kindess

Have you ever experienced an unexpected act of kindness?  Whether you’re the recipient, the initiator or an uninvolved bystander, these actions warm the heart and are quite contagious.  Let’s see if we can capture this feeling on a blog.

The goal is to log as many acts of kindness during the months of November and December. Click on the comments link to the left here and share something nice you did, someone did for you, you observed or simply to be inspired by the stories of others.  Enjoy!

    One of my clients, Lou DiMaggio, appreciated the fact that I helped him with his eviction of an abusive tenant, and he noticed that Kyra was playing on a keyboard. He said that with her level of play, she should have a real piano. The next thing I knew was that he had bought her a piano, and he had it delivered on Friday. She is so happy with it, and it was such a lovely gesture. Our next act of gratitude will be to have him over for his own personal recital.

    over the weekend, Chip and I were having dinner at Guadalajaras – There was a group of teens, 14 of them, sophomores and juniors from Crondolet and De LaSalle having dinner. More to this story ( kinda lengthy) I decided to buy them churros for dessert (under the radar) but the waiter decided in return he would have them all thank me at once, with a big loud thank you. I shared what I appreciated about them (how such a big group who was having fun were so respectful and kind) and it lead to a bit more of a conversation, that gifted me in return for that exchange!

    My friend was at Costco in line behind an elderly woman who tried to pay for her two items with a credit card. When the woman found out that Costco doesn’t take credit cards, she counted her money and didn’t have enough, so my friend helped her pay for one of her items. Upon seeing this, the Costco cashier paid for the other item, which was her chicken dinner.

  33. Susanne Renner says :

    driving down concord blvd in morning commute leads to the poor cars on the side streets being stuck for long periods of time in order to cross into traffic. This morning I slowed down and then stopped to allow for 3 cars to enter…it took a matter of less than a minute for them to all get through – a minute for which they were grateful and each gave me a wave!
