My son had a nail in his tire repaired recently, it left him stranded on the highway today when the repair failed! A wonderful DOT vehicle in TN stopped, repaired his tire, and told him to have a nice day!

This was by no means a big thing, but I can’t explain how much it made my day.

It was about a year ago. I had a final for my hardest class (also the teacher was a huge douche, so that didn’t help). The final was a group presentation. It was unbelievably frustrating and took 3 hours.

My hubby and I were shopping yesterday, and I was getting disheartened at how all the stores are selling the same muted coloured, flowing styles – none of which suit what I wanted. A kind shop manager asked me if I was looking for something specific and I said yes, gave her a bit of an outline and she suggested I try Portmans and even gave me directions.

I remember when I moved back to Alabama from Tampa, FL., I called the bank to change my address. When I told them who I was, the person I was speaking with said, “Oh, you’re the one who sends the beautiful cards! We are going to miss you! We fight over who gets your cards!”

I ended up in the MCU at my local hospital after becoming badly depressed from a breakup and financial problems. First really serious relationship. She had a child that I became close to and everything. I didn’t know how to handle it. I wasn’t suicidal but I was basically allowing my life to implode on itself. Anyway I was put in the MCU and couldn’t leave.

A kid that lives down the street from me stole my new car 2 months after I got it. He threw everything in the car away, including my granddaughter’s car seat and my daughter’s CD case that held 100 CD’s. He took the change, necklaces hanging from the mirror etc… At the time, he was on drugs. A very deep dark place to live.

If you have a problem with anti-social or bullying behavior in your classroom, I urge you to consider including kindness in your back-to-school curriculum. We’ve been advocating for teaching kindness, or more specifically, social-emotional learning (SEL) to improve wellbeing, self-esteem, mental health, social connection, and academic results for years. And, these are just a few of the benefits of teaching kindness at school.

We’re very happy to see that many teachers now embrace and incorporate these concepts into their classroom curriculum. You’ll notice I said “incorporate” and that’s because SEL shouldn’t be an add-on. Teachers now have access to an array of wonderful resources that make it easy for them to switch out traditional lesson plans and worksheets for those that cover academic requirements but also build emotional intelligence.

This happened over 20 years ago. My husband was in grad school and our son was 3. I was driving a couple of hours each way to work.

One night I saw a woman whose car was stopped on the side of the interstate with the hazards on. I stopped to see if there was anything I could do to help. She had been heading a few hours north of where we lived and her car broke down.

I once heard a story about a husband and wife who had been at each other’s throats for years. The couple were so nasty to one another that they had nothing but hatred in their hearts and wanted to get a divorce.

Neighbors asked to borrow my truck. Told them I could not trust my truck because the tires were bad.

Next day my neighbor called and said he was getting new tires for his suburban and I could have his old ones. Told me to just show up at this certain tire shop and they would put them on.

A girl in my sorority once ran across campus to bring me a battery for my insulin pump because I was in lab. Today she pulled out a handful of batteries and said she carries them around just in case I need one and it’s honestly the nicest thing anyone’s ever done for me. – @ailijones
