I used to take the old ladies next door grocery shopping sometimes, and sometimes I helped carry their food up the front steps, but sometimes I just wasn’t “up to it” with all my own bags. read more →

I am writing a short message of love for my bua ji (aunty). She is elder sister to my father and her name is Gudi Kaul. She lives in Faridabad India and I love my bua ji so much. She is close to my heart and I want to share something with you. Bua ji is having a pacemaker in her heart. My heart cries a lot and I tell mamma and papa she is very special for us so I pray for her every day. read more →

12 years ago, a dear friend was dying and knew she may not make it to my birthday. So she had her son got me a box of Whitman’s Chocolates (sampler) and a card. She had no family besides him, but treated my family and me with great love! It meant so much that she had such a strong desire to make me happy just days before her passing, although I never even expected anything from her. read more →

I lost my family home about a year and a half ago due to a fire. My family lost everything and I was forced to live with friends and relatives but my dad was luckily safe in a VA nursing home. With no food or clothing, we needed help with just about everything and many kind people were there for us but because we lost our vehicle, my sister and I are now unable to visit dad as much as we used to. read more →

Acts of kindness at my Chick fil A are amazing. Not only from my guests but, from the owner himself.

Back in May, we flooded twice. Ten inches of water in the entire house. I was given a vacation pay for a week (when I could not even get out to work). And the guests themselves gave freely of their hard earned money. I feel so Blessed. Each guest and the owner himself said that they were just paying me back for my love and kindness that I had shown them. – Deborah 

Today was another yucky day. Upon checking the mail, I found a package with my name on it. That was exciting enough, but seeing the beautiful pillow inside touched me extremely deeply! The person who sent it had asked for my address some time back, saying they had something for me, but I assumed it was a card! Well, I was actually correct, because there was a sweet card inside too! It totally brightened my day and is so huggable!! read more →

Last night the kids and I ran to Kroger because we felt like baking cookies. In the checkout line there was a lady in front of me. She smiled at me. I was laughing. She said what’s so funny? I said the cashier just tried to ring up someone’s umbrella (it had been raining) she laughed and continued chatting. read more →

Ten years ago, I was fortunate enough to be the Administrative Assistant at a local church.

When I had started to attend years before, a friend would pick me and another older lady up and drive us to church every Sunday. I learned this older lady used to be the Administrative Assistant to the previous pastor. So almost every Sunday, the drive would be a terrible trip as we would listen to how this “new” (almost 20 years experience!) pastor was horrible, the church was unorganized, etc. Finally, it was enough! I yelled at God… either let me help her or shut her up!!
So now, years later, in the same job that she was in, I immediately remembered her, and thought…I’m gonna kill this woman with kindness if it kills me first! read more →

It was an easy task to fly to Arizona, stay for a few days, and then fly home with my grandson in tow. All the Minnesota relatives were anxious to totally spoil him for 3 ½ weeks.

11-year-old Brady had been anticipating this for months. read more →
