A Piece Of Pizza

I can’t remember if I was nine or ten years old. I do remember that it was the last day of 4-H camp. I was looking in the mirror and checking my face for bruises. The day before for some silly reason I had gotten into a fist fight with another boy. It didn’t take long for the bigger boys to pull us apart and call it a draw, but in truth I had lost. My head was still sore from a couple of the blows...

The "kindness" I experienced today... was from the Universe, in the form of a tiny bird. I believe that the lesson and gift, was that of true Trust, Patience and Love. This precious little one must have hit the glass at work today, as she sat stunned right outside the door when I came out. I waited, but she wasn't moving so I carefully picked her up. I cradled her in both hands for...

Last week my daughter and I took my two grandkids to a fast food restaurant that has kid meals that come with a toy. While we were eating, a little boy who was seated with another child and two adults began to cry. Both my grandkids were very concerned and my grandson took the toy he had gotten with his meal and gave it to the little crying boy. It was a small gesture, but I...

My Grandfather

Is it possible to miss something you never had? Is it possible to miss someone you never knew? The answer is Yes! I never got to know either of my grandfathers growing up. They both died before I was old enough to remember them. I still had my Mom, Dad, and Nana but it wasn’t quite the same. We lived several miles from town. Dad worked long hours at his job as a mechanic. Mom and Nana were always busy...

I have 2 kids, a 2-year-old and a 2-month-old. I'm at the neighbourhood centre for a fund-raiser this morning and i had been sitting down to eat some waffles, my baby started to cry so I put my plate down, and an older woman comes over and says "no, I got him". I thanked her and sat down to finish my waffles. When I had finished, I gestured to take him back and thanked her...

Went to visit my 82 year-old Dad today and he told me about two acts of kindness that happened to him recently. First, he been grocery shopping and when he opened the tailgate of his car, a 6pack of glass bottles fell out of the car, missing his feet but smashed glass all over. As he stood contemplating how to pick it all up (at 6ft2 and 82 bending isn't particularly easy) Then a voice calls out...

A few weeks ago, I accidentally dropped a dish exactly like this, and it smashed into a zillion pieces! I'd had it for approximately 40 years, it had cooked many, many dishes for my children over the years, I was devastated to say the least. Then today, we had a parcel delivered to my son Damian. He opened it and proudly handed it to me, he had bought this with his own savings, (he is on a...

A few days ago I sold something on marketplace for $15. I informed the lady buying it that I am close to going into labour and if something happens before she comes to collect it I'll try to let her know. She showed up in the morning, gave me this envelope and said there was a little extra in there for baby. She then wished me the best of luck. What a beautiful gesture, it made my...

Today we received kindness from a total stranger. Our son has an intellectual disability but has been catching the bus home from work for a long time with no (well, not many) issues. Not today. Today he had a fall and smashed his face up pretty well. A lady saw him in our neighbourhood and took him to the local doctor who said to take him to emergency. So she drove another 15 min to the...

Shortbreads

I just answered a knock at my front door, and discovered that my new neighbour had left a (delicious) tray of shortbreads. She was just running off, but came back to tell me that if there was anything I need, to just let her know (there was this nice note with the biscuits as well). I am a senior, and still well able to manage, but I thought that this gesture was just so nice and...

My husband has been working 12 hour shifts, 7 days a week, for over a month. On October 2nd, my 15 year old had a syncope episode, and hit her head on the ground when she fainted. She has been recovering from a concussion ever since. Thankfully, nothing more serious is going on with her. I’ve been battling an issue with my foot, and have been wearing a boot since July. It has gotten so bad,...

Barefoot In The Grass

It was officially the last day of Summer but it felt more like Fall. The air was finally cooling down. The first leaves were changing colors on the trees and some were even dropping to the ground. The hummingbirds had flown south for the Winter and I was seeing fewer bees and butterflies. The sky above me was turning gray and sprinkles of rain were falling down. The wind was blowing and I could smell that a...

“This used car is beginning to be a pain,” I thought to myself. First the battery had died in the first few months that I had it. Then a recall notice had arrived in the mail shortly afterwards. This meant driving it to a dealership 25 miles from my home and sitting for 2 hours while they replaced the faulty parts on it. I had driven it in 2 weeks earlier only to hear that the right...

I cannot begin to express how truly grateful I am to live in a neighborhood with such supportive and compassionate people. Stonegate neighbors came together at the request of a sweet neighbor of mine to offer their assistance, tools, and whatever else we needed to carry out a surprise yardwork day for me. Due to very personal circumstances, its has been a struggle to perform yard upkeep and maintenance on a...

Today, we received thee most amazing envelope in the mail. It was an envelope full of letters from Tayder! He has been writing a little each night and mailed them out as a group to each of us. The trainees haven’t been able to get to the store, so he was running low on stamps. I noticed quite a bit of writing on the outside of the envelope, and I didn’t put two and two together right...

I loved my first grade teacher. Her name was Mrs. Gross but there was nothing gross about her. She had a such a sweet smile and kind way about her. I wasn’t sure what her age was at the time but she already looked very grand-motherly. She was soft spoken and had a very gentle sense of humor. Unlike some teachers she never yelled at or criticized her students. To me it felt like having a second...
